Standardized design kits from architects and kit of parts from manufacturers are quickly emerging to help simplify and accelerate the design and construction process. Some examples are listed below.
Blokable – The Blokable Building System (BBS)- 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.
