Built to last

As extreme and adverse weather events become more common, we are building climate resilient homes while introducing technology that reduces emissions in construction.

  • Electrically powered equipment keeps GHGs to a minimum.
  • Onsite mixing and manufacture keep trucks off the road and eliminates idling.
  • Masonry buildings maximize impact of investments in efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS 3D CONSTRUCTION PRINTING?

3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) refers to an innovative technology that uses software to control the placement of materials in order to build a 3D object or structure without the need for a standard formwork. The most common placement process in 3D concrete printing relies on extrusion of cement-based composites – whether this is a mortar with fine aggregates or concrete with large aggregates. 3DCP promises to enable the production of complex geometries in a fully-automated setup while delivering advantages such as material savings, greater efficiency in the production of complex concrete products, new architectural insights and design strategies. 

WHAT 3D PRINTER SUITS MY PROJECT?

Each project may require a different size of 3D concrete printer. For this you need to keep in mind two measures before selecting the 3D printer that fits you the best: Print Area (PA) which is the area size (width x length x height in meters) of building you would like to print. Installation Area (IA) which is the area needed for the BOD2 printer. We encourage you to try out our COBOD Configurator in which you can build your own printer.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUILD 2 AND 3 STORY BUILDINGS?

With our BOD2 printer, it is possible to 3D print houses and buildings up to 10 meters (32 feet) in the height, which allows for printing of 3 story buildings. Several 2 story buildings and houses have been 3D printed with our technology – as references, check out Bostock Studio Project and A&D Multi-Family Project

WHAT IS THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS WHEN USING A 3D PRINTER?

This topic is covered in detail during training when you receive your printer. The process will vary from project to project, but the standard construction process consists of the following steps:
– Site preparations
– Printer installation
– Printing outline of slab / foundation
– Casting slab / foundation
– Printing walls for ground floor
– Installing deck
– Repeat for multi-story buildings
– Closing the house (roof, windows, doors)
– Finishing (paint, floors, electricity, HVAC)

HOW IS THERMAL INSULATION ACHIEVED?

Thermal insulation depends on two factors: The thickness of the insulation i.e. the distance between your outer and inner wall; and The Lambda value (insulating property) of your insulation material. By combining these two factors you will get an R value, which needs to follow your local building code.
