About PT Blink
PT Blink is creating a unique technology platform and digital marketplace* that enables the offsite manufacture of buildings rather than constructing them traditionally.
PT Blink reduces property project risks for owners and developers by bringing visibility, control, assurance and modern manufacturing precision to any property asset. By licencing PT Blink’s patented technology platform and Blink DMI™ (Design-Manufacture-Integrate) method of project delivery, owners and developers can minimise the risk of time and cost overruns that often occur in traditional construction projects.
PT Blink’s infinitely flexible geometry and parametric modelling enable millimetre-precise component manufacturing and mass customisation for any architectural design, while reducing project time by up to 40%, minimising waste and risk of worker injury, and enabling smart asset operation.
*PT Blink currently licences its proprietary Blink DMI™ method to clients on a project basis while the platform and marketplace are completed.
