Sustainable construction

  • Where are BoKlok homes built?

    Our houses in the UK are manufactured by TopHat, a technology-driven modular housing manufacturer. Constructed in their factory in Derby, the houses are then transported to site, where any final fixings are completed.
    Our apartments are manufactured by Harmet and are built in Estonia. The modules are then transported to the UK by ferry. Only trucks with an emission class of EURO 5 or higher are used to transport the modules by road. When transported across the sea, only ferries using low-sulphur fuels are used, to minimize the climate impact.

  • Why are you manufacturing your homes in a factory?

    By manufacturing our homes in a factory, we can be really efficient, reduce unnecessary costs and protect our homes from adverse weather. We complete up to 90% of the homes in the factory, with the remaining 10% completed on the construction site. We call it modern and innovative construction, although we have been doing it for over 25 years!

  • How do you demonstrate your commitment to sustainability?

    Sustainability permeates our entire business, from material selection through to how we work on site. Our goal is to become climate neutral by 2030, and we will achieve this by thinking sustainably throughout the value chain and in all our processes. We don't just build homes; we build sustainable communities. For us, it is important to create something long-term for those who are going to live there.

  • Which material do you use?

    At BoKlok we build all our homes in wood. It is the material that has the lowest carbon footprint of all building materials, which means that our houses have significantly lower climate impact than the average newly built house. We are convinced that wood is an important part of the transition to a sustainable construction industry.
