Five simple steps to building your new modular home

In everything we do, we believe in keeping things simple.

We’ve refined numerous years of design and construction experience into a beautiful and versatile modular system that effortlessly responds to your site, brief, and budget. 

Our highly-skilled team of architects handles every aspect of the design and construction process from concept through approvals to handover. So you can relax and enjoy watching your new modular home come to life!

1 - Establish your brief and budget

The Blok process starts with a free consultation with our director and principal architect, Dan Burnett. This can take place over the phone, on video chat, or in our Brisbane studio.

In this meeting, we will discuss your story, your ideas about how you like to live, your site, and different options about how we can achieve your goals within your budget.

If you would like more information or a copy of our price guide, please email us.

Even though the Blok system is modular, each project is a bespoke piece of architecture that is designed to respond to your individual requirements. With this in mind, the price guide is useful to establish and inform your budget. However, in the following stages, our architects will design your new modular home to suit your brief, your site, and your budget.

2 - Let's talk!

As architects, we love to understand and respond to your individuality. So call us to discuss further, or email us your project information.

Following the free 20-minute consultation with Dan Burnett, project viability and a clear direction to achieve your goals will have been established.

The next step is an on-site meeting, including 1-hour architect’s consultation, hand-sketched conceptual schematic drawings, and a project cost estimate. ($400+GST within Brisbane Metro, other areas POA)

3 - Design phase

One of the biggest advantages of modular architecture is the ability to control the cost and timeframe, and provide full project visibility, right from the start!

To pass this advantage on to you, we implement a low-cost Master Plan package. This includes resolved schematic design drawings of your new modular home, alongside accurate and comprehensive project cost estimates and timeframe information. Uniquely, the Master Plan allows you to review the design and budget before engaging full architectural services.

After the site meeting (or for those projects further afield, a detailed virtual meeting), our architects will have a clear understanding of your project requirements. This will allow us to provide a proposal outlining the project brief and the price of the Master Plan package.

When you are happy with the design and the budget outlined in the Master Plan, you can engage Blok to complete the rest of the design phase and coordinate all approvals and consultants. Architectural and consultant fee estimates are included in the Master Plan.

We work closely with you throughout the design phase to achieve the design goals and functional requirements detailed in the project brief. To help visualise the end result, we provide an accurate 3D digital model of your new modular home, which you can explore on your computer or handheld device.

4 - Fabrication phase

Upon completion of the design phase, a construction contract is signed and a 20% construction deposit is paid. Your modules then spring into life in our factory. You can come and visit throughout the fabrication phase, or receive photo updates as your modules evolve.

While the factory is busy constructing your modules, our affiliated licensed builders will commence work on-site, preparing foundations, services, and landscaping. The efficiency that modular construction affords compresses the timeframe for your project in half!

When the modules are finished, they are then transported to site and precision-installed at a rapid pace. The final service connections and landscaping is then completed, alongside any required in-situ construction depending on the design of your new modular home.

5 - Move-in day!

Blok director and principal architect, Dan Burnett, and our affiliated builder will give you the grand tour and hand you the keys.

Your own individual piece of modern modular architecture is ready for living in!

For peace of mind, your new Blok modular home comes with a 6-year warranty.

The Blok advantage

Your modular home is meticulously designed by Blok’s highly-skilled team of architects. We continuously review our designs against the latest global architectural innovations to ensure living in your new home is as pleasurable and exciting as possible, now and for years to come.

Timeless

At Blok, we celebrate the block aesthetic. Inspired by pioneering modernist architecture and mid-century design, our modular homes draw from enduring modern principles. Blok regularly collaborates with leading Australian architecture practices to produce outstanding results.

Even though the Blok system is modular and prefabricated, each project is a bespoke piece of architecture responding to individual requirements. When you choose Blok, you’ve got the benefit of a full architecture practice that works closely with clients to achieve optimal collaborative results.

Australian made

Blok modules are designed and prefabricated in our Brisbane factory by our expert construction team, using only high-quality materials and fixtures. If you live locally you can visit throughout the fabrication phase, or receive photo updates as your modules evolve.

Effortless process

We pride ourselves on offering seamless project delivery from the first meeting through to completion of your project. We work closely with you throughout the design phase, as well as coordinate all development applications, building approvals, construction, and installation.

Australia-wide installation

Blok specialises in difficult beach and hinterland sites, and we work with consultant teams and councils across Australia to ensure we can achieve ambitious outcomes. Our experienced construction team works hand in hand with our design team to ensure the highest quality outcome.
