Housing Development as a Service
The Blokable Building System (BBS) is a comprehensive building system designed, engineered, and manufactured to consistently produce high-quality, low-cost, connected housing.
Each Blok in the system is a standardized, modular housing component assembled entirely in our manufacturing facility and designed to be stacked, combined, and connected to create prosperous communities.
By vertically integrating the entire prefabricated building stack under our factory roof, we are able to drastically cut overall project time, slash project costs, and deliver lower operating costs over time.
Bloks are currently designed to be assembled into 1-3 story communities and can be configured in a variety of ways, from standalone homes to multi-unit developments with retail and community spaces on the ground floor. The BBS structural steel frame and shear-wall system allows us to create wide open spaces for studio, 1, 2, and 3 bedroom homes and to attach decks, railings, stairs, architectural features, a wide range of cladding options, and a variety of roof types to create unique and beautiful building designs and to match climate and community design requirements.
Blokable’s standardized building system is designed to be a canvas for our architect partners, offering them maximum flexibility and creativity in design and is built to accommodate an extensive variety of high-quality materials and finishes, giving owners a choice in aesthetics. This means that Blokable projects are suitable for even the most architecturally demanding projects.
The Blokable Building System integrates BlokSense hardware and software to monitor performance and safety features of a home or property in real time. This integrated approach minimizes maintenance and insurance costs, while providing highly efficient housing as well as real-time integrated monitoring of a buildings vitals, greatly reducing the lifetime operating costs of a building.
Part of the process
From concept to implementation, complex product development and implementation requires a tight connection between engineering, design, manufacturing, and installation processes. Underpinning our Blokable Building System is the coordination of enterprise resource planning and supply-chain management, Revit and cloud-based 3D part design and engineering, and prefabrication machining software. The BlokSense Development Platform coordinates these systems and brings collective design, purchasing, building and logistics power to every project.
Every Blokable is a connected home and comes with BlokSense home hardware pre-installed in a hardwired system built right into the Blokable Building System. With BlokSense, community and property managers are equipped with powerful tools to monitor safety and performance, manage access, and improve comfort. Our software minimizes maintenance, repair, insurance and other management and operations costs (a large portion of total monthly housing costs).
By providing visibility into alerts, usage monitoring, and trends, the BlokSense platform allows proactive repair and maintenance. Understanding building behavior greatly reduces the operating costs of a community. Regular, over-the-air software updates unlock new capabilities and ensure all customers have access to continuously improving software.
BlokSense makes every Blokable home smart. The BlokSense smart home platform gives property owners, managers, and residents a simple, optimized tool to monitor performance and safety features of their homes and communities in real time, including temperature, power usage, humidity, and air quality, as well as smoke, carbon monoxide, and water leak alarms. Using any web browser on any device, customers can view real-time and historical data and sign up to receive alerts. A wired network of intelligent sensors gather and report data to our cloud-based BlokSense Insights Dashboard, where customers can monitor and manage the home in real time.
