“It’s great to see innovative young technology companies like Blu establishing a base here in Western Mass.,” said Congressman Neal. “Blu is focused on building green homes that reduce a homeowners’ carbon footprint, which is terribly important.”

Blu’s break-through computer modeling, unique folding technology and unusual use of a hybrid steel and wood frame allows it to manufacture buildings that are larger and more durable than any other factory-built homes and commercial spaces. Blu buildings can be affordably shipped anywhere in the country from its Massachusetts facility and can be installed and finished within a matter of days.

Selectman and Chairman of the East Longmeadow Green Committee Jim Driscoll noted, “This is great for East Longmeadow and the Springfield area. Blu is bringing green jobs that are good for the economy and the environment.” Blu currently employs 45 employees, up from five one year ago, with 15 of them in the East Longmeadow facility.

Blu’s green homes feature a unique combination of healthy, cool and green features designed to create a beautiful living environment with a reduced carbon footprint. All Blu homes come with many possibilities for clients to configure floor plans and window, door and wall placement. The homes range from $70,000 to $275,000.

Blu has a variety of residential and commercial eco friendly, pre-constructed home designs and has delivered homes to families and businesses across the U.S., from New York to the Colorado mountains and the California coast. Blu expects to launch its mkDesigns line beginning this fall with the Glidehouse. For more information on Blu go to http://www.bluhomes.com/balance-news-release/, contact info@bluhomes.com.
