3D printed zero net energy homes with composites in California

In California two innovators – Palari Group and Mighty Buildings – are working together to build a community of 3D printed zeronet energy homes with a 100% polymer composite panel. The panel is 3D printed and it is complete with structure, insulation, MEP integration, air/moisture/fire barrier & interior/exterior finishes. 

The partnership

Palari is a builder of sustainable 3D-printed homes and communities. Its goal is to have an impact through the:

  1. reduction of waste
  2. use of renewable energy
  3. attention to wellbeing

The company is collaborating with Mighty Buildings, a construction technology company that creates affordable and sustainable homes using 3D printing, robotics and automation. Thanks to this partnership, the two companies are building 3D printed clean energy homes and communities in Palm Springs, California.

The single panels are printed at Mighty Buildings’ facility and then they are assembled into homes at the construction site. 

Construction

The homes will feature textured exterior stone walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, along with mid-century modern architecture. 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 optional Tesla Powerwall battery and EV (electric vehicle) chargers are available.

Basil Starr, founder, and CEO of Palari Group

“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. 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

“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.”
