The team of Mighty Buildings havehas developed a unique 3D printing material and system that allows us to print beautiful, energy efficient structures with zero construction waste and at a lower cost than traditional construction technologies.

Low automation, decreasing productivity, lack of qualified labor, rising timber cotscosts drive construction costs up. The average totalmedian square footage of houses built has also been growing for many years since builders are not incentivized to build smaller / starter homes. These factors make starter houses overpriced and hardly available to the first time home buyer.

...
