UNiBLOCK partners with developer to provide ICF blocks


Property developer Empire has joined forces with UK-based manufacturer, UNiBLOCK, to use its insulated concrete form (ICF) materials

UNiBLOCK is a UK-based manufacturer of Insulated Concrete Form (ICF), a modern method of construction (MMC) that reduces the cost of construction and cuts time-to-market, whilst maintaining extremely high levels of construction standards.

Empire specialises in developing modern and stylish residential apartments from unused or unloved commercial buildings.

The company currently has a pipeline of 3,702 new build units across 18 developments in Yorkshire, the North West and Northumberland.

Forward-thinking partnership

Les Dawson, managing director at UNiBLOCK, said: “Empire kicked off its ambitious 2020 new build projects plan with an executive housing development in Lincolnshire and we are delighted they have chosen UNiBLOCK to provide the ICF blocks for this exciting project.

“We have developed a close working relationship with the team at Empire and will be supporting them by providing ICF blocks from our new factory in Scunthorpe for any suitable project moving forwards.”

Empire managing director, Paul Rothwell, commented: “These are really exciting times for Empire as we enter the new decade with a significant pipeline of developments.

“As a forward-thinking business we are keen to embrace new technology as we look to constantly improve our product offering. Our investment in UniBLOCK will allow us to do just that.”

One of the first projects this new partnership will support is the development of ten executive homes in Sturton by Stow, Lincolnshire.
