3D Printing Construction - An innovative building solution that can clear the backlog of needed affordable homes and schools in Africa
This solution aims to accelerate the provision of schools in one of the poorest countries in the world, Malawi. More than 36,000 classrooms are needed and thanks to 3D printing, all those buildings could be completed within 10 years. Through 14Trees, LafargeHolcim and CDC provide a solution to NGOs and international organizations which are currently delivering schools in that country. The solution is a printing service sold to organizations. Building design and construction execution is handled by the solution provider. This includes the manufacturing of LafargeHolcim 3D ink, and the operation of the printer, using only local staff. Pioneering in introducing 3D printing in Africa for the construction of schools and houses, 14Trees is now working on rolling out the solution in Kenya and Zimbabwe.
