Canadian-based nidus3D has completed what it claims to be the first three-storey 3D-printed house in North America

Erected near Toronto, the three-storey 3D-printed house spans 420 sq m and 12.5 metres from footing to the top of the roof.

Three full storeys of concrete were printed using a 3D printer from Cobod International, using locally sourced materials.

The exterior took 80 hours to print and has a traditional brick face with a steel-framed roof.

The project also features a 3D-printed basement

The building will house four apartments. The basement of the building was also printed in concrete, with the 3D printer placed directly within the excavation for the home’s foundation, rather than pouring concrete.

Hugh Roberts, co-founder of nidus3D, said: “nidus3D is proud to be the first in North America to successfully construct a three-storey structure, including the below-grade basement, in 3D-printed concrete. This project demonstrates what can be accomplished by combining nidus3D’s industry-leading expertise and engineering with world-class 3D Printing technology.”

Philip Lund-Nielsen, Cobod co-founder and head of Americas, added, “We are very proud to see nidus3D beat their record by 3D printing the first 3-storey building in our hemisphere – a feat that other Cobod customers outside North America have also achieved previously. Completing the world’s first 3D printed basement is another impressive achievement that only amplifies the technology’s potential to transform construction.
