Apis Cor and Eden Village Wilmington Announce Partnership to Design, Develop and 3D Print Low Cost Tiny Houses

Solving housing issues for chronically homeless with new, cutting-edge technology

MELBOURNE, Fla. and WILMINGTON, N.C., April 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apis Cor, the company that prints buildings, and Eden Village Wilmington, a tiny home community for the chronically homeless, today announced their partnership to 3D-print low cost tiny homes. As partners Apis Cor and Eden Village are designing and developing tiny homes that meet the non-profit’s goals and specifications.

“We believe Apis Cor’s 3D-printing technology is the future of construction. Working with Apis Cor to design and develop a 3D-printed home that can be replicated makes it possible to provide a private home to a very needy person,” said Thomas Dalton, M.D., co-founder, Eden Village Wilmington, N.C. “We can build houses faster, at a much lower cost and with less waste. Furthermore, 3D printing opens the horizons for alternative and eco-friendly materials.”

Eden Village is a 31–unit tiny home community specifically designed to provide life-long, permanent homes for chronically homeless individuals in Wilmington, North Carolina.

“Eden Village knows exactly what they need to build - from the floor plan to the finishes. We are designing the look and feel for their tiny 3D-printed homes inside and out,” said Anna Cheniuntai, CEO and Co-Founder of Apis Cor. “Together we are developing an action plan and long-term roadmap to 3D-print an entire village.”

With 3D printing technology there is tremendous room for innovation. The cost of a finished tiny home can be up to 30% less than traditionally built concrete block or wood framed houses.

Apis Cor Affordable Housing Cooperative Housing Program
Apis Cor launched the industry’s first Affordable Housing Cooperative Program (AHCP) to work with nonprofits and affordable housing companies to develop and build 3D printed homes. Apis Cor and its AHCP Partners design spec houses that fit the organization’s distinct requirements of price, sq.footage, floor plan, finishes and other factors. Once construction costs are validated and a long-term plan to replicate and scale the solutions is created, onsite 3D-printing will begin.
