Alquist 3D Printed Homes

Alquist 3D relocated its headquarters from Iowa to Greeley, Colorado to become the hub for new construction technologies. Alquist 3D will be printing all of the homes in the Habitat for Humanity community in Greeley. The 3D-printed homes will be built from layering concrete.
