Business model


Buildpod International is not a building company but a building technology provider and enabler, positioned to become an international player in the construction sector.


The bPod® business model is based on international licensing of the patented bPod technology to established building contractors, manufacturers or contracting clients anywhere in the world where the bPod benefits can be realised.


We are therefore not competing for market share, but are instead offering existing businesses a new product to meet contemporary demands in support of their own market share.



Key people


Ole Henriksen is the creator of the international bPod business model, and the company’s founder and CEO. In 1983 he was a co-founder of software developer Borland International Inc, an international market leader in PC software. He worked in London from 1985 and has lived in Guernsey since 1993. He has created Buildpod International Ltd not as a building company but as a technology provider and enabler to the construction business – essentially a “software” supplier to “hardware” customers in the building trade. Among his key visions is the use of synergy to create a result greater than the sum of its parts, as was key to the success of Borland. As an experienced pilot, he is also keen to introduce to the building industry the safety culture which works so well in aviation.


Ole Bjerre is the inventor of the bPod building technology. He is a Danish architect with early experience in residential design and construction. He later created a business in sandwich panel production used in a range of industries, gaining considerable expertise in production management and development. Work in the building support industry eventually led to his invention of the bPod building technology which he patented and later sold to Buildpod International Ltd. He is now a consultant for the company on the development of his invention.


Paul Ralph Draper FRICS is bPod's UK project manager. A chartered surveyor, Paul brings to bPod a wealth of experience in both private and public sector property management and development. He was co-founder and managing director of Pace Projects Ltd, a project management company based in London, dealing with commercial development projects within the UK mainly for blue chip clients.
