Apis Cor, a 3D-printing robotic technologies manufacturer, has secured a strategic investment from US-based home construction company D R Horton. 

The two companies intend to collaborate on a multiunit construction project in South Florida, US, after the completion of a new 3D-printed wall system. 

The wall system is anticipated to result in a boost in productivity. 

The collaboration will also see Horton offering advisory support through its construction experts. 

Horton business development SVP Brad Conlon said: “As a strategic investor, we are always interested in highly innovative companies. We’ve seen many technologies in the space and are very impressed with what Apis Cor has achieved and demonstrated so far with their mobile, proprietary printer ‘Frank’.  

“We look forward to what we can achieve together to expedite the commercialisation of this promising technology.”

Founded to combat the current labour shortage in the construction industry, Cor’s 3D-printing technology is designed to bolster the capabilities of homebuilders, including smaller developers.  

Cor CEO and co-founder Anna Cheniuntai said: “Access to D R Horton’s extensive expertise and infrastructure can boost the adoption and scalability of our breakthrough technology in the market and help us make our technology available for every homebuilder in the country sooner.” 

Cor began construction on a fully permitted 3D-printed residential house in Melbourne, US, last December.

The 168ft² residence is intended to accommodate both short-term and long-term rental requirements for workforce personnel relocating to the Space Coast region in Florida.

In addition, real estate company Nakheel secured the first 3D printing technology licence in December 2023 from Dubai’s Trakhees for the Al Furjan Hills project.
