Century Complete launches first community of 3D printed homes
The new homes infuse signature floor plans with smooth interior and exterior concrete composite walls
Century Communities, one of the top US homebuilders and an industry leader in online sales, has launched its first community of 3D printed homes, under the Century Complete brand. The new homes infuse signature floor plans with smooth interior and exterior concrete composite walls that offer durability, sustainability, and noise reduction in a stylish yet traditional architectural package.
Century Complete’s robotically-printed homes boast high-quality construction with finishes like granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, and are now selling for upwards of $200,000 at Mountain View Estates, in Casa Grande. Homebuyers can choose from three single-story floor plans – offering up to four bedrooms and 1,901 square feet.
“This is a significant breakthrough not just for Century Complete but also for the housing industry and homebuyers looking for cutting-edge construction at an affordable price,” said Genji Nakata, Executive Vice President of National Operations for Century Communities.
“We are thrilled to debut this new technology in Casa Grande, showcasing the traditional aesthetic that our buyers love but with industry-leading concrete printed walls designed for durability, energy efficiency, and noise reduction,” said Greg Huff, President of Century Complete. “Just as importantly, this sustainable and scalable construction model further expands on our mission to provide affordable new homes that keep the dream of homeownership within reach.”
According to Century Community, the benefits of the company’s robotically-printed concrete composite walls include energy efficiency; decreased exterior and interior noise; superior insulation, strength, and durability; sustainable construction, with the excess materials being recycled for future home builds; high-quality construction; and a traditional look and feel as a result of the finishes.
