World’s first commercial 3D-printed concrete, housing project is under construction in the city of Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Five 3D-printed concrete houses will be built. The houses will all be occupied, they will meet all modern comfort requirements, and they will be purchased and let out by a real estate company.
Project Milestone can rightly be seen as a milestone for many reasons. Not only when it comes to the technology and the builders, but also with respect to design, the municipality, the future occupant and the landlord. When the first occupant receives the key in 2019, there is a home that meets the latest needs for comfort. Made sustainably and energy-efficient, but also comfortable, light and quiet. And in fantastic wooded natural surroundings.
Ultimately, the project will complete 5 houses, with both printing technology and home design becoming increasingly complex, as one is build after the other. If the ground floor is still being printed off-site, the 2-storey fifth home will be manufactured entirely on-site. The development of the 3D concrete printing technique will therefore be beautifully visible. More than an experiment, these houses are intended to be occupied for at least several decades.
