Products

Mighty Buildings has developed a 3D printing material and system that allows the printing of energy efficient structures with near-zero construction waste. They claim that this can be done at a lower cost than traditional construction technologies.

One of the advantages of Mighty Buildings technology is that it enables freeform architecture. Mighty Buildings states that their materials feature better compressive and tensile strength than commercial grade concrete, while 3D printing technology uses light to get the composite material solidified from the printing head. Mighty Building is able to print horizontal lines without support.

Mighty Buildings delivers Housing Construction Platform automating 80% of construction operations and saving up to 95% of building time. They specifically focus on solving problems of effective production of the category of starter homes, starting from the segment of backyard studios that can be built on the existing lots for the Millennials who live with their parents.

Mighty Buildings gives consideration to environment sustainability when providing housing solutions. Being concerned with surrounding natural ecosystems they have eliminated waste from our construction processes by utilizing additive manufacturing and recycling of materials. Their solutions are also designed to meet progressive energy standards.

Mighty Buildings has taken into consideration longevity of delivered products and their security for the customers. Proprietary materials are more resilient to fire, wind, moisture, earthquake events, and other environmental factors.
