Federal Grant Will Give Boost To 3D Printed Homes In Redding

A local contractor getting into the business of building 3D printed homes is getting a boost through a collaboration with the City of Redding. A federal housing grant of $3 Million will go toward the construction of homes at three locations: Enterprise Community Park, the Bonnyview Boat Ramp and a third location that’s still in the planning phase. Don Ajamian Construction and Emergent 3D will begin construction when the 3d printer arrives in Redding. Plumbing, electrical, roofing and ceiling Sheetrock will be done by conventional crews, but the walls will require a crew of only three people.
