The first 3D-printed home constructed for Habitat for Humanity is underway in Tempe. This morning, Habitat for Humanity President and CEO Jason Barlow, Tempe Mayor Corey Woods, CEO of PERI USA Strydom Groenwald, Principal of 3D Construction Paul McAllister and Team Director and Project Manager for Candelaria Design Damon Wake joined together at the job site for the home for a press conference that also included members of the surrounding community.
ASU graduates and principals for Phoenix-based company 3D Construction, Clarence McAllister and Paul Mooney, Jr. approached Barlow 19 months ago about new and innovative housing solutions. With a lot of planning, support and the inclusion of partnerships, the plan to debut a 3D-printed house through the Habitat for Humanity nonprofit program was set into motion.
