Havelar completed Portugal’s first 3D-printed house in the Greater Porto area using COBOD’s 3D construction printing technology. The house was printed in 18 hours and has 2 bedrooms and an area of around 80 sqm.

“More than a printing or construction company, we promote Construction 2.0, which enables us to deliver new complete houses in less than 2 months well below current market prices. We can deliver modern mid-market designed houses for just €1.500 per m2”. said Patrick Eichiner, CEO and Co-Founder of Havelar.

“We want to team up with partners who see themselves in building sustainable and accessible communities. With €150,000, it’s possible for a young couple to have the home they’ve always dreamed of, in an area with good access and services”. stated Rodrigo Vilas-Boas, Co-Founder of Havelar.

Havelar also plans to use more alternative building materials, such as earth, sludge, slag, straw, and other biomaterials, in its construction projects, with an aim to reach carbon neutrality by 2030.

“When you are setting very ambitious goals, there is always a risk, that these are not realized, but if you do not aim high, you will reach nowhere. We are happy to support Havelar in their ambitious endeavors, our printers are open source when it comes to materials and can print with many different types”. said Henrik Lund-Nielsen, Founder & General Manager of COBOD.
