3D Printed Homes Corporation Will Print Houses in as Little as Two Days.

CALGARY — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 23, 2019 — Large scale 3D printing is a technology whose time has come. Houses and office buildings are being printed in Netherlands, Russia, China, USA, and Mexico, but not in Canada.

3D Printed Homes Corporation (3DPHC) will change that and bring this construction revolution to Canada.

Ed Macnab, Director - Business Operations states, “The business case is clear. This technology will build houses more cost effectively than anything that has come before. We can lower the entry bar for thousands of Canadian families.

With 3D printing we can make our spaces free-form, beautiful, and efficient while reducing construction labour and nearly eliminating waste. We can erect small houses in as little as one day and larger houses in two or three.

We will not be cutting into the existing jobs or housing markets. Rather, we will add a new product line that will expand both.”

Frank Ossm, Director of Design and Innovation, is more effusive. “The idea that affordable must come at the expense of aesthetics is no longer valid. To quote Frank Loyd Wright; (architect): ‘If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life.’ This is what investing in a home will look like in our very near future.”

Canada lags much of the world in this arena and 3DPHC intends to catch up in 2020.

David Pocock, Director of Construction, notes: “In much of Canada we have unique challenges. We must develop a material that is cost effective and sustainable, using environmentally friendly, preferably recycled materials, to reduce the carbon footprint of our homes. Through the Applied Research and Innovation Services (ARIS) program at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) we will design, test, certify, and patent an extrudable house printing material suitable for the rigours of Canadian service.”

We are running, until December 25th, a modest crowdfunding campaign through the ATB BoostR program to raise the funds necessary to enter this innovative research program. Please click the link below to learn more about us, and assist if you can.



3DPHC is a privately held Alberta company.
