Description

About Blokable:

We started Blokable in 2016 to make quality housing attainable for everyone. We develop housing to force the market to work. Our unique Blokable Building System (BBS) unlocks previously unavailable efficiencies through standardized, prefab housing components called Bloks which we use to manufacture multi-family residential buildings, real estate, and communities. We don’t sell our Bloks into the industry; we are vertically integrated housing developers, developing both market-rate and not-for-profit projects. By vertically integrating the development process and leveraging our internally developed and manufactured prefabricated building system we generate enormous efficiencies in the development process and create real estate equity. The newly created real estate equity creates wealth for our business, stakeholders, and the communities we build. This is a new paradigm for housing creation and a real solution for the housing crisis.

The Blokable Building System is a precise, high-performance volumetric assembly that ships from our factory as a 95% complete living unit, requiring a minimum of site work to install and finish. We use structural and non-structural steel for multi-story structure, non-combustible walls, floors, and ceilings, and have an internally engineered hardware and software platform that allows owners to monitor building safety, security, and performance in real time. Our office is located in Sacramento. We're continually improving as we move from construction to manufacturing, adding manufacturing processes and specifications and preparing to expand our manufacturing capacity.  


Blokable is well financed by world class, mission aligned investors including Vulcan Capital ,Kapor Capital , Launch , Revolution Ventures , Building Ventures , Urban.us , Ferguson Ventures , and others.  The people of Blokable come from a broad range of backgrounds including real estate development, finance, architecture, product design, engineering, technology, law, manufacturing, and construction. We work for each other and have all joined Blokable to work every day on the housing problem. We have very ambitious goals and a clear, though challenging path ahead to force the housing market to work.
