About

Block Solutions is a patent holder and producer of unique building solutions that are  produced using BIOCOMPOSITES. Block Solutions is a producer of this unique solution for building low cost/high quality dwellings that are specifically designed for inhabitants that are faced with desperate situations (i.e. poverty stricken, natural disasters, refuge for people during political conflict and wartime situations). The final solution can be easily constructed using a lego method and simply installed by people with little training, no heavy equipment and with the ability to be dismantled and moved when necessary. Block Solutions. product proposal is more than construction materials or cost-effective shelter, IT’S A SAFE WAY TO HOUSE PEOPLE IN DESPERATE SITUATIONS and can eventually be turned into "permanent" housing with modifications funded locally. 

Risks and challenges

The Challenges (like all projects) are mostly about getting legislation, standards and norms to allow in all countries (including EU, EMEA, China and America's). This takes time and resources from people that are taking huge leaps of faith that we can help people soon. We can fund our pioneering, but we are needing donations to help cover the costs of products for pilot projects (housing for schools as pilot and testing projects in each country),, helping people one block at a time.
