At AC3D (which stands for Automated Construction 3D) we are addressing the key challenges of the construction industry: solving the global housing shortage, and reducing the negative environmental impact.
The current housing shortage, estimated at around 12 million homes annually, is a multifaceted issue:
ac3d purp
Lack of productivity in existing technologies / Slow speed of construction 
ac3d purp
High costs of existing technologies (high capex for modular, high opex for traditional construction)
ac3d purp
Global construction labor shortage
ac3d purp
Lack of productivity in existing technologies / Slow speed of construction

Lack of productivity in existing technologies / Slow speed of construction 
The environmental footprint of the construction industry is equally concerning:
Construction is the world’s #1 waste producer. Among the major reasons for such impact are:
ac3d purp
Traditional construction technologies use a lot of formworks which end up as waste
ac3d purp
Inefficient material consumption
Construction industry is the top contributor to CO2 output:
ac3d purp
8% of global CO2 comes from cement production
ac3d purp
Lack of energy efficiency in multiple types of existing buildings
AC 7
AC3D’s vision is to develop a productive, cost-efficient, and sustainable construction automation technology. 3D printing is the foundation of that route providing a lot of key features including:
ac3d purp
High productivity and scalability at reduced capital and operational costs
ac3d purp
Enhanced construction quality and repeatability through automation and digital processes
ac3d purp
Great potential for lowering construction costs for higher affordability while increasing the speed of the building process
ac3d purp
Mitigating the shortage of skilled construction workers through automation
ac3d purp
Significant reductions in CO2 emissions by using sustainable binders like geopolymers and implementing smart insulation techniques
ac3d purp
Waste minimization by eliminating formwork and optimizing material usage
ac3d purp
Enabling free-form imaginative, AI-driven architectural design while streamlining the design to manufacture lead-times
ac3d purp
High level of resilience to natural disasters and fast restoration if a disaster has occurred to traditionally build communities

Our Sustainable Development Goals
