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.

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.”

– Fiona Coughlin, Executive Director & CEO Habitat for Humanity Windsor..
