Construction 3D printing firm Mighty Buildings, together with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and Habitat for Humanity, have been awarded a $5 million GFO-22-305 grant from the California Energy Commission.
The grant focuses on advancing and testing modular, cost-effective homes with a zero or near-zero carbon footprint. Its primary objective is to foster sustainable housing solutions for under-resourced communities, specifically for low-income families. This initiative aims to construct three advanced prefabricated low-carbon townhouses in Bay Point, California, addressing affordability, sustainability, resilience, and accelerated construction timelines.
“We are thrilled to embark on this groundbreaking project. Our collaboration with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Habitat for Humanity reflects our commitment to innovation, sustainability, and our community,” said Scott Gebicke, CEO of Mighty Buildings. “The support provided by this grant goes beyond building three townhomes; it’s actively shaping the future of construction in California. We envision a future where affordable, resilient, and energy-efficient homes are the standard, not an exception.”
