After a period of sustained growth in our workforce and the addition of new companies to the group, we’re pleased to announce that the Bloc family’s head office is moving to the University of Derby’s Enterprise Centre!
The Bloc family consists of Bloc Creative, Bloc Digital (engineering and industry specialists), Bloc Media (film, broadcasting, arts and heritage audiences), and Bloc Arch Viz (architectural and property sectors). It now employs 50 people across its head office in Derby, architectural base in Bournemouth, and its recently established presence in North America.
Our move – which will take place over the summer 2020 for completion in September – is being driven by the group’s growth, as well as a collaborative partnership between Bloc Digital and the University of Derby. Bloc Digital already has three collaborative Knowledge Transfer Partnerships with the University of Derby which drive research and development into VR, AR and animation. The move will place Bloc in a strategic position to continue this innovation into new visualisation immersive technologies.
At Bloc Creative we’ve also worked with the University of Derby on a number of creative projects, including the University’s Get Carbon Smart programme, ENSCITE partnership, Infinity Park partnership and Science Park, as well as the Enterprise Centre itself. This has included a range of services from branding, print collateral and marketing to web design and social media.
Our continued working relationship with the University of Derby makes this move even more exciting for our team.
Just a 6 minute drive from our current location, the offices at the University of Derby’s Enterprise Centre will enable the Bloc family to have its own floor of office space as well as onsite parking and a meeting room. Our new address will be Bloc Creative, Second Floor, The Enterprise Centre, 67 Bridge Street, Derby DE1 3LD.
