What we do

3D printing of homes

We build affordable homes in Africa, using our 3D printing technology and Holcim's TectorPrint ink. We adapt our designs to customers' needs and ensure that those houses are affordable and deliver better environmental performance. 

3D printing of schools

We have built the first 3D printed school in the World. And the second as well. We have developed a broad range of school designs that are suited for eco-friendly and user-friendly school construction. 

Green bricks and blocks (Malawi)

In Malawi, we are the largest producer of our innovative soil stabilized bricks, Durabric and a producer of concrete blocks. We produce and build homes and schools using those low carbon products.
