Small homes, big sustainable impact
California-based construction technology company, Mighty Buildings, creates not only beautiful and attainable homes but sustainable homes utilizing state-of-the-art 3D printing, robotics and automation.
By printing exactly what they need, the company has cited their process results in building two times as quickly with 95% less labor hours and 10-times less waste than conventional construction – 3D printing a 350-square-foot studio apartment in just 24 hours.
Sustainability is at the forefront of Mighty Buildings’ engineering, design, and material selection and the company is moving towards a low-carbon and sustainable future. They’ve committed to get to Net-Zero by 2028, 22 years ahead of the construction industry and have recently joined United Nations' #RacetoZero campaign.
The structures are also satisfying the growing desire for accessory dwelling unites (ADUs), which are separate living spaces on the same property of an existing house. ADUs are small and functional but can still be outfitted with custom furnishings to achieve the design style you desire.
ADUs can be converted into in-law units, extra studio space, accommodate a grown child returning home, a fully-functional gym or as income properties. The possibilities with ADUs are endless.
While small, Mighty Buildings homes are big on design. With high-end finishes like countertops, cabinets and appliances and in many floor plans, beautiful floor-to-ceiling Andersen® windows and doors.
“These small homes not only offer options for affordable housing, their business model directly confronts construction waste while creating beautiful, modern designs by working with manufacturers that offer contemporary products such as Andersen’s E-Series line,” said Chris Haslock, Andersen Territory Sales Rep.
With the importance of increasing affordable housing, cities around the nation are beginning to relax restrictions against ADUs and are recognizing the solutions they bring to the housing crisis.
"We are revolutionizing an industry by introducing more efficient materials and more efficient technology that isn't tailored to certain designs," said chief operating officer Alexey Dubov, in an interview with Tech Xplore.
The company recently introduced their Single Family Home product line and plans to expand its business in the future by printing full-scale multi story homes. You can see more Mighty Buildings homes on its website or Instagram.
