Alquist 3D Largest 3D-Printed Home Building Project

3D-printed-home builder Alquist 3D announces Project Virginia–the world's largest 3D-printed construction project in the world: 200 homes around Southwest Virginia. Alquist will kick off this project with a demonstration near the site of the first two 3D-printed homes in Pulaski, Virginia on Friday, April 29.
Building on SuccessProject Virginia follows the success of Alquist's recent Habitat for Humanity project in Williamsburg, Virginia — the first owner-occupied, 3D-printed home in the world. Alquist's mission is to solve the housing crisis in rural and underserved areas of America. The company uses the most advanced 3D-printing technology, Black Buffalo 3D's NEXCON printer, to lower the cost of housing and infrastructure in economically distressed and under-served communities.
Opportunity for PulaskiAlquist chose Pulaski because demand for housing is soaring there thanks to the more than 3,000 new jobs Volvo, Blue Star Manufacturing, and American Glove Innovations will create in the area. Also, Virginia's New River Valley was recently identified as having one of the highest growth rates in the nation for tech jobs in the U.S. Those companies' workers will need affordable homes near their jobs and Alquist is equipped to provide unique, affordable housing that these workers and their families will love.
"With migration patterns shifting due to pandemic, climate, and economic concerns, smaller communities like Pulaski have a huge need — and an amazing opportunity — to develop affordable housing for new residents," said Zachary Mannheimer, Founder and CEO of Alquist 3D. "By 3D printing these homes, Alquist and our partners will be accelerating Pulaski and Roanoke's ability to harness current trends and attract new workers to this wonderful community in southwestern Virginia."
Time-Saving TechnologyPrinting a house is just like printing on paper, only supersized. The "ink" is reinforced concrete, which is layered one row at a time as a home's exterior walls are "printed." 3D-printed walls can be built in days instead of weeks:

  • The three-bedroom, two-bath home Alquist built for Habitat for Humanity took only about 22 hours to print the exterior shell.
  • That's at least 2-3 weeks less than the standard construction schedule, cutting nearly 15% off of costs.
  • 3D printing also enables builders to use less lumber — a huge benefit since lumber availability and prices have been highly volatile.

Event DetailsAt 1 p.m., Alquist 3D Founder and CEO Zachary Mannheimer will demonstrate 3D printing using the NEXCON printer developed by partner Black Buffalo 3D. The demonstration will be held across the street from the home construction site at 205 Pierce Avenue, Pulaski, Virginia 24301.
About Alquist 3DAlquist is a 3D printing construction company that uses cutting-edge technology to create homes, buildings, and other structures aimed at decreasing the cost of homes and solving the housing crisis. Alquist has invested more than four years of research into 3D printing technology, and Alquist's partner company, Atlas Community Studios, which has helmed rural revitalization and economic development projects in over 20 states. Through their work together, Alquist and Atlas have determined that the number one need in nearly every rural community is housing, which is why they plan to work in those communities throughout the US to develop new single family, multifamily, mixed-use, and senior living units. In addition, Alquist is investing in research to build new roads, elevator shafts, retaining walls, and other traditional concrete structures using 3D printing technology.
