About Us

Blok Modular was born out of Future City Architects’ director, Dan Burnett’s dream of using mass-production to produce highly refined, precision-built modular architecture affordably.

We believe that the emerging modular construction movement is not only the future of housing and construction around the world, but that it will bring with it a shift in architectural style which will change the built environment significantly.

Precise mechanised production coupled with the latest 3D modelling technology and a controlled factory environment allows us to fabricate high-quality componentry and assemble it to achieve a level of intricacy in our architecture that is more akin to the automotive industry.

We can produce buildings with either a high degree of visual articulation like industrial architecture with colourful expressed-structure, or a stack of completely minimalist boxes.

Affordability

Our modular system begins with a steel framed skeletal structure which has been designed to stack, cantilever and withstand the rigours of transport.  We then tested and plugged in all of the latest innovative and emerging construction technology, to achieve material and labour cost savings.

Sustainability

We’re very conscious of the environment and the energy footprint in this country so we design to help improve things. Our buildings are all 6 star energy rated, with insulation values which exceed Building Code regulations by up to 50%. Our modules are designed to maximise passive heating and cooling like cross ventilation, shaded glazing, Low-E and double-glazing options. Our modules use low VOC paints and finishes and are designed for easy install of solar and water collection. This all adds up to a more pleasant environment and ongoing lifecycle cost savings.

Flexibility

A really smart house can change to suit your changing needs. Humans are very dynamic, but traditionally our houses are not. If a house can cheaply and easily adapt to a growing family or even relocate completely, this can be a distinct financial and social advantage. A first home buyer can stage their build, moving into a small single module apartment, and then add more modules on the second or third level as their equity or family grows. Teenagers can be moved to the other side of the backyard. Parents too. Modules can be disassembled, relocated or removed on trucks quickly and cheaply, to be reused on a new site.

Excitement

For too long, exciting, striking and monumental architecture has been the reserve of expo pavilions and James Bond villains. Thankfully Blok Modular is here to rescue us all from the boring housing industry! We know that with clever planning you can produce spectacular buildings on a small budget, and with our very structurally-efficient modules we are able to achieve impressive cantilevers and large spans on a budget. Working in close collaboration, our architects and construction team have developed our interior detailing and a wide variety of external cladding options to produce uncompromising modernist finishes on every surface of our modules inside and out! We studied innovative modular projects from all over the world, including lightweight panel systems, container architecture, micro-houses and apartments and love-hotels. All of these lessons in adaptability, efficiency and style have been brought to bear in Blok Modular. We think it’s time that exciting architecture became as broadly accessible as other art forms like film or music.

Income Generation with Prebuilt Homes

We have designed a range of backyard solutions which are specially designed for student accommodation. They range from 1-2 stories and up to 3 bedrooms. They utilise pod bedrooms, with loft beds and integrated desks and storage to offer students a very comfortable, efficient and affordable share-house lifestyle. These compact bedrooms allow for larger living areas and reduce cost to create passive income from your property. The return on investment is higher than any other property development model. Most capital city councils in Australia allow for up to 4 or 5 unrelated people on a property, so there is usually no planning application required.

Speed and Simplicity

Achieving this accessibility comes with eliminating the mysteries and pitfalls of the conventional construction project. In the information age we’ve become accustomed to researching, comparing and purchasing online from anywhere in the world, with products delivered to our door at the click of a mouse. Blok Modular has been developed to deliver this kind of ease and efficiency. We do this through our end to end service, coordinating a cohesive team of consultants who are passionate about a seamless project delivery from concept design to handing over the keys. Our clients don’t have to concern themselves with the mechanics of building a house, leaving them free to enjoy a collaborative design process, with a flexible modular system or to simply choose a highly-developed off-the shelf model, customise it if desired and then watch the installation. Its all the fun without the pain!  Part of this is also achieved through design – our modules are fully prefabricated in our factory in Brisbane, are delivered to site on standard trucks so a three storey house can be assembled in one day.
