BoKlok is a home ownership concept from Sweden, owned by Skanska and IKEA that produces sustainable, high-quality, low-cost, space-saving homes at a price that enables as many people as possible to afford a comfortable home. The first BoKlok homes were completed in 1997 and now almost 14,000 homes have been delivered throughout Sweden, Finland and Norway.
Achieved through modern methods of construction (MMC) which uses timber-frame modular technology to produce schemes of up to four storeys, the buildings comprise separate modules, all of which are fabricated off-site in a factory, and then transported to the building site for assembly. About 80% of the house is built off-site while the actual on-site construction takes up to four weeks. The result is cost-effectiveness and high-quality control.
