A home dedication ceremony on Dec. 12 will hand over the keys to two 3D-printed homes in Newport News, Va., according to a recent news release. The homes are the result of the latest collaboration between Alquist 3D, a 3D printing construction technology company based in Greeley, Colo., and Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg. 

Alquist 3D and Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg have partnered before, building the first-ever 3D printed Habitat home in the nation in December 2021. To date, Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg has built more 3D-printed homes than any other Habitat affiliate in the nation.

"While most 3D printing endeavors focus on urban residential areas and commercial buildings, many of the regions facing the biggest housing challenges exist in smaller communities. As migration patterns shift due to climate and economic concerns, smaller communities face a severe housing shortage that must be addressed if they are to attract and retain a workforce. We want to build homes for people who live outside of the places where most funding for housing programs is spent," said Zachary Mannheimer, Founder and Chairman of Alquist. "We see these homes and this partnership with Habitat for Humanity as a major milestone for the American 3D market, and look forward to collaborating with more communities in 2024 and beyond."
