Bloor Homes x MERLYN

About the project

Bloor Homes is a family-run housebuilder that builds quality into every home – creating better live experience for their homeowners and the communities they create and develop.


Bloor Homes choose to work with MERLYN due the highest of standards upheld at every touchpoint of the business – the products, the supply chain, stock availability as well as the extensive installer training provided.

The challenge:

As a national housebuilder, Bloor faces a nexus of challenges – not least of which is maintaining a steady supply of high-quality materials and technical support. In a recent study by Knight Frank, 61% of housebuilders said that supply chain issues and rising material costs were the most significant factor adding pressure to their bottom line.

The Client:

The people at Bloor are known for their high-quality standards – considering everything from the fine design details, to preserving natural features and local wildlife. They put customers at the centre of this process, offering them the chance to add their own style to a future home.


MERLYN is passionate about design and craft, and they know exactly what a national developer like Bloor Homes needs in a practical sense, too. From their attention to detail to their reliable supply solutions – essential to building a quality home.

I think the best partnerships come about when we share values as well as goals. Like Bloor Homes, we believe our business can and should have a positive impact on people’s lives and improve the world by working to higher standards of sustainability.
