A UK property development company is planning to raise funds to develop its own 3D Printer for the construction of homes.

3D Print Homes International, the first UK based company to enter the 3D printed housing market, has launched a fundraising page on

Fabian Jean-Baptiste, the founder of CNSTRCTN International and the UK’s first 3D Print Homes industry advocate, wishes to utilise the brilliant capabilities of 3D Print Homes, with construction methods that combine industrial production and the technique of rapid prototyping.

The firm said: “With this innovative building method, which utilises contour crafting, our home building expertise and managing the layer by layer fast-drying concrete, we can build entire housing estates in a matter of a few weeks and one fully built home within a day.

“With the funding £500,000 funding we seek, we will purchase all the parts needed to build a state of the art 3D Print Home printer, establish an office in London and start the process of making 3D Print Homes. We are targeting countries all over the world, mainly the ones which are in most need of these homes, including the poorest regions of Africa, South America, Asia, Australasia, North America and Europe in this order.”
