About this Project

Project Code: RP074

Located a one hour’s drive east from Calgary, this project is situated on Siksika land. The Siksika Nation Chief and Council honoured this project by giving it the Blackfoot name of “Kakatoosoyiists,” meaning Star Lodges. This name comes from their stories about stars and how they provide guidance, a sense of direction, protection, and life lessons to the people who live in these homes. 

The project consists of four buildings each with four supportive housing units, designed to provide a haven for individuals of Siksika Nation. Design elements such as the roof, incorporate aspects of Siksika Nation’s heritage and tradition.  

This project is Canada’s largest 3D concrete printed housing project to date.

NIDUS3D ANNOUNCES 3-YEAR PARTNERSHIP WITH MEP WORLD GROUP

For immediate release

Kingston – Nidus3D Ltd. and MEP World Group LLC (MEP) have signed a multiyear partnership agreement. The agreement grants Nidus3D Canadian distribution rights for MEP’s innovative concrete additives for the Canadian construction sector and lead the uptake of the technology in 3D Construction printing sector globally.

“Nidus3D is excited to bring MEP’s innovative, sustainable and cost-effective alternative concrete admixture to the Canadian market,” said Ian Arthur, nidus3D’s President. “It has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about greening the building sector.”

MEP World Group is the manufacturer of SeaMix, a suite of admixtures that incorporates chopped basalt fibres and a graphene slurry. Performance tests and exposure to harsh environments by MEP have shown SeaMix to increase workability, reduce cure times, increase compressive strength, and enhance crack control of concrete compared to other admixtures. In addition the admixture allows for the use of non-potable, brackish or saline water in the production of concrete and use with non-metallic reinforcement.

Our research shows that Seamix will allow us to build stronger and faster with less cement, saving time, money and CO2 compared to conventional buildssays Rey Rubio, Executive Vice President, Engineering. “We are excited to partner with nidus3D in order to bring SeaMix to the Canadian and 3D Construction printing markets.”

Since 2005, MEP has been providing full-service engineering solutions and led the way in finding smart products, new technologies, and innovative solutions to positively impact communities with the highest sustainability standards available. MEP is a member of the U.S. Green Build Council. 

Established in, 2021, nidus3D is a leading provider of 3D Construction Printing (3DCP) solutions. nidus3D is a pioneer in automated production printing, providing on-site manufacturing of masonry structures and has delivered Canadian, North American and world firsts in the 3D construction printing sector. nidus3D provides unparalleled predictability in budget, timeline, and scope, while reducing material usage and waste, labor, and carbon emissions.

    About this project

    Project Code:

    In partnership with Habitat for Humanity Windsor-Essex, and the University of Windsor, nidus3D delivered North America’s first residentially permitted multi-unit 3D printed building. The build includes four self-contained 560 square foot homes and was partially funded through Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s Innovation Fund. 

    As Canada’s first residentially permitted 3D-printed building, Leamington serves as proof of concept and paves the path for quicker and more cost-effective homes for Canadian families. nidus3D uses a CSA-approved concrete mix, and nidus3D-pioneered onsite-manufactured lift in components to maximize the printing area of the COBOD BOD2 printer.

    “Finding nidus3D was a blessing: When you’re doing innovation, when you’re rising to the challenge like the housing crisis, when you’re rising to a challenge like the environment, you have to be bold, you have to be able to pivot and come up with solutions. The minds nidus3D are all about ideas and solutions, and the motivation is: we’re going to succeed no water what.”
