With the Covid-19 pandemic and increased demand for homes, as well as the rising cost of wood and other components, as well as skyrocketing prices over the past year, it is time for some innovative builders in the US and other countries to gradually rely on 3D technology. print to create a well-defined and durable concrete house.
The cost of creating this type of structure is much lower, and only one person is required on site to oversee the development of the process and supervise the device when it erects the foundation and walls.
This takes significantly less time and saves the builder a huge amount of time and labor. The downside is the reduction in the number of jobs needed to build a home, but the upside is that more homes can be built at less cost. On average, for the construction of a medium-sized house with an area of 1200-1800 sq. Feet takes 4-6 months.
However, with a commercial 3D printer doing the job, it can take as little as one day to get the design done, and then when you have contractors finishing the doors, roof, windows, and so on, it can only take a few weeks. and finish the process.
This is a much more efficient and environmentally friendly way to build a home with much less concrete and materials that create less waste. Precision and detail, allowing for very complex designs, as well as various shapes and sizes far beyond human capabilities, allow the builder to be much more creative.
This contributes to greater savings, as well as savings in heat and an environment in which people with disabilities can live more comfortably. In 3D Source, which explains 3D printing of houses, I quote: “Moreover, the University of Tartu, Estonia, with the Estonian University of Life Sciences, have jointly created an inexpensive 3D printed concrete home material made mainly of peat that can reduce material house building costs up to 10 times!
Also, because peat is so common, it can be mined locally – for example, in poorer Third World countries – and used to build houses, so the materials don’t need to be shipped there. This becomes extremely beneficial in countries where shelter and shelter are sorely needed at a price that could not have been produced otherwise.
In the US, this is the best way to accelerate the construction of much-needed housing at a price that will make it affordable for those who may and may no longer be able to buy due to rising prices.
These homes can be built in areas with abundant land (upstate New York and other areas), and today PILOTS (payments instead of taxes) were provided for other developments, as well as tax breaks that New York City provided to many builders.
The brain drain has been going on for years due to the high cost of living and insane housing costs, and has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s time to enable affordable 3D printing of homes to keep more families and individuals in place and not leave for other less expensive states.
Dubai aims to have 25% of its buildings built using 3D printing by 2030. Russian company Apis Cor, using 3D printing technology, is building an office building in Dubai.
Even with the heat experienced in this area, the 3D printer has proven to be successful and has passed all the tests for speed and durability.
In July 2018 in Nantes, France, the family moved into their newly built 4BR home, the first ever 3D printed home, for 170,000 francs = 182,292.57 dollars in 2021 dollars.
The cost at the time was 20 percent less than a stick house.
For New York and the country as a whole, it is a “simple task” to create more affordable homes for those in need of housing, while at the same time giving them the opportunity to give up their rent and get a share of their own. building equity, a future egg and long-term wealth, and taking root in their community, something the vast majority have never experienced. 3D-printed homes can help solve the housing crisis, be it single-family projects, multi-family projects, or government-funded projects, at a much lower cost than traditional methods.
At the same time, the current insanely and ridiculously high cost of wood will be reduced by lower demand and use due to the use of cement in 3D printing, which will also reduce these costs.
Municipalities at the local level and across the US must begin to rethink and update their local building codes (if they are not already doing so) to incorporate this new technology so that smarter, more economical, and efficient construction can be created.
Lowering the cost of future housing will maximize and increase the scarcity of affordable homes and allow more families and individuals to opt out of rent that has given their landlords all the benefits and turn the tide by reversing the wealth gap so that more people can be able to seek home ownership to build your own future wealth and security.
I hope Governor Cuomo and Washington are listening to this and putting it on the fast track to make it a major project under consideration.
