Housing Innovations: ICON Builds First Permitted 3D-Printed Homes In Austin, TX

From an Austin.Curbed.com online article:

ICON 3D Printed Homes InteriorICON, which uses robotics, software, and advanced materials (including its proprietary “Lavacrete”) to remove numerous barriers in the contemporary building industry, debuted its first 3D printer and the country’s first permitted, 3D-printed home in at SXSW 2018 in Austin.

Community First Village, run by Mobile Loaves and Fishes to provide permanent, personal housing and services for homeless people in Austin, had quite the breakthrough day Monday. Partnering with Austin-based Icon and and Cielo property group, it opened the second phase of its development with a 3D-printed prototype house that will serve as a welcome center for the community. The 500-square-foot building took a total of 27 hours to print.

Boomers Home Design: 3D Printed Housing Will Reduce Costs And Construction Time, Improve Efficiency

From 3D Printing Media Network:

3D Printed Homes CyBe Construction“More than just demonstrating its ability to create 3D printed houses, the SRTI Park project also aims to reduce costs associated with construction. CyBe’s concrete 3D printers are developed for flexibility and speed—walls can be 3D printed in a single day—and do away with many of the costs of traditional construction methods.”

CyBe Construction, a Dutch specialist in concrete 3D printing, has been selected as the technology provider for a 3D printed house project in the UAE. The house will be built as part of the Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park (SRTI Park) initiative which aims to 3D print a series of buildings in the area with the goal of transforming the city of Sharjah into an architectural hub.

The first 3D printed house of the SRTI Park project, supported by CyBe and the American University of Sharjah (AUS), is expected to be built by Q3 2019. The house will be constructed using CyBe 3D printing construction technology with the help of students, faculty and researchers from AUS, who will be trained in using the AM platform.
