North America’s First Multi-Unit 3D Printed Homes
About this project
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.”
