Palari Group builds sustainable 3D-printed communities and homes. Mighty Buildings is a construction technology company creating affordable and sustainable homes using 3D-printing, robotics, and automation. The two innovators are partnering to build a community of 3D-printed zero-net energy homes in California.
The essential building block of the homes is the Mighty Panel, a 3D printed, 100% polymer composite panel complete with structure, insulation, MEP integration, air/moisture/fire barrier & interior/exterior finishes. Mighty Buildings prints the individual panels at its facility, and they are assembled into homes at the construction site.
According to Mighty Buildings, using its process and materials homes are manufactured twice as quickly with 95 percent fewer labor hours and 10 times less waste than conventional construction.
The homes are far from basic, featuring mid-century modern architecture with floor-to-ceiling windows. Each property includes a 1,450 sq. ft. primary residence with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and a 700 sq. ft. secondary residence with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on a 10,000 sq. ft. lot with a swimming pool and mountain views. The zero net energy homes are fueled by solar energy and an optional Tesla Powerwall battery and EV (electric vehicle) chargers are available.
“We are thrilled to launch this first development of 3D printed sustainable homes and partner with Mighty Buildings to realize our common vision of transforming the way we build homes of the future,” said Basil Starr, founder, and CEO of Palari Group, “3D printing allows us to build faster, stronger and more efficiently, making it integral to our platform of streamlining home-building process centered on the sustainability of construction, materials, and operations.”
Alexey Dubov, co-founder and chief operating officer of Mighty Buildings, said, “This will be the first on-the-ground actualization of our vision for the future of housing – able to be deployed rapidly, affordably, sustainably, and able to augment surrounding communities with a positive dynamic.”
