In Episode 9 of 3D Universe Untethered, co-hosts Jeremy Simon and Alina Dragu of 3D Universe spend an hour chatting with Sam Ruben, Chief Sustainability Officer, and Co-Founder at Mighty Buildings, a construction technology company creating beautiful, affordable, and sustainable homes using 3D printing and robotic automation.
“Use cases range quite a bit, so we’ve got a number of people who are using them as the state (of California) were hoping, as rental properties and that is a mix of both landlords who have a property and want to add an additional unit.
We have people who just need more space and that has been something that has come true during the pandemic as people’s homes become their work, people are realizing they don’t have as much space as they might want.
We are seeing a lot more multi-generational living now, as a lot of younger people have lost their jobs or just wanted to move back with family and on the other end, we are seeing the same for seniors. Maybe they don’t want to be in a care facility given what has happened in terms of the pandemic but they still want their privacy and to be close to their family.”
