                   Simpler, faster and without compromise - delivering care solutions for all
Offering a range of flexible, eco-friendly housing units, Mbloc is taking a fresh approach to the care sector
   If you have ever wondered what the future of housing might look like, the images on this page might give you a clue. Based in Long Melford, Mbloc is a new concept building
company with a purpose built show home in Sudbury.
The company has created a unique design steel-framed, timber-panelled building, all crafted with long-term sustainability in mind. Their mission is to change the way in which we build today - making the process smarter, simpler and faster, without ever needing to compromise.
Unlike traditional builds, Mbloc's
internal layouts can be personally designed to meet each client's individual requirements, making the designs highly unique in their adaptability. Each unit
also incorporates a
substantial level of
insulation and comprises eco-friendly components, resulting in an energy efficient and cost efficient property for the client.
Having already designed a new concept system to tackle the ever increasing demand for affordable housing, Mbloc has now set its sights on
the care sector. The forward thinking company has created six concept designs that focus solely on the care society, pioneering practical living solutions for those with additional needs. The care sector has developed rapidly in recent years, and the demand for flexible living options is set to grow as we look to the future. With UK adults living longer lives, quality care is a pressing concern - but care homes aren't suitable for everyone, and many people prefer to continue living independently rather than moving into residential care facilities.
Mbloc Care Suites can be designed and adjusted based on each client's needs and specifications, taking into consideration ‘smart technology’ and a variety of conditions such as being bed bound or bariatric. The larger Mbloc Care Suites have been designed to accommodate live- in carers or partners or spouses, enabling clients to maintain a full and independent life. This level of flexibility is useful for all homeowners, but is particularly crucial for those living with full-time care needs. Mbloc's flexible designs allow clients to shape their new home around their needs, adding practical features such as ceiling hoists, wet rooms and wheelchair friendly kitchens. The company's adaptable units help clients to create a tailor-made home that works for them, fulfilling their care needs while also affording them the comfort and independence of having their own personal space. What's more, the internal layout of each unit is easily altered, so clients are able to adapt their space to suit their ongoing needs and evolving requirements.
Another unique aspect of the build is their speed in construction. Each unit takes between five and eight weeks to complete, and can also be constructed in
restricted, land-locked areas with minimal ground disturbance. All
Watch out
. . . for Mbloc being featured in an autumn
episode of television’s Grand Designs programme.
Mbloc builds come with a structural 10 year warranty,
ensuring unparalleled peace of mind and giving
customers confidence in their new property. By combining
flexible design with speed in construction, Mbloc is pioneering a
new approach to house building.
