Here at 3D Rapid Print, one of the fastest growing 3D Printing companies in the Thames Valley, we like to keep abreast of the latest innovations in 3D printing.
On March 10th 2021, construction technologies company Mighty Buildings of Oakland, California announced that construction had begun on what it proclaimed as “the world’s first community of 3D-printed zero net energy homes” in Rancho Mirage (also in California). Mighty Buildings is collaborating with self-described “builder of sustainable 3D-printed homes and communities” Palari of Beverly Hills (also in California), who plans to develop the 5-acre site into a community of 15 eco-friendly houses, such that each one will occupy a 10,000 square foot lot.
Mighty Buildings also announced that the houses would be built via its patented wall system. Named the Mighty Kit System, Mighty Buildings claims that it is unlike anything else of its kind in the industry, and uses what Mighty Buildings describes as “a revolutionary non-silicate Light Stone Material and steel components.” Might Buildings aims to satisfy all the houses’ electricity needs via solar power.
Each property is intended to feature textured exterior stone walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, consisting of a primary residence of 1,450 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, and a secondary residence of 700 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. In addition, each backyard is designed to feature a swimming pool with deck and views of the surrounding mountains with space for lounging and desert stargazing. Mighty Buildings proclaimed that during the houses’ presale stage, prices would start at $595,000 for a basic 3 bedroom/2 bathroom model, rising to $950,000 for a two-house configuration with upgrades, which include multiple electric vehicle charging points and various backyard amenities.
