The world’s first commercial housing project based on 3D printing 

3752

Project Milestone is building the world’s first 3D printed concrete homes that will actually be lived in

The five 3D printed concrete homes will be built consecutively, all meeting modern comfort standards and building regulations. The first, a single-floor, three-room 95m2 house, is expected to be ready for occupation in mid-2019. All the concrete elements will be printed at the Eindhoven University of Technology.

The time between design and realisation is relatively long for first property, as all the engineering is being done for the first time ever, but construction time is expected to shorten radically as the project progresses.

The other four homes will be multi-storey properties with printed concrete floors and roofs.

The fifth home will be manufactured entirely on site.

The homes are being planned for Bosrijk, a new residential area in Eindhoven located in parkland and near the Beatrix Canal.

Location: Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

Project team: City of Eindhoven, Eindhoven

Completion: 2019 onwards

University of Technology, Van Wijnen, Vesteda, Weber Beamix and Witteveen+Bos.
