A housing charity dub New Story, have teamed up with startup ICON to construct a 800 square foot property and hope this project and innovation will help reduce the high rate of homelessness across the globe. The house was unveiled last week and cost just 7,200 pounds sterling to construct using the firm’s Vulcan Printer which directs the placement of the cement structure.
The unveiled single storey property is complete with porch, bathroom and living room. All this was done in 24 hours with the effective assistance of the Vulcan Printer except the roof. It’s estimated that about 1 billion people are homeless across the globe and New Story has embarked on quite an ambitious task to end homelessness globally with this innovation.
The company is contemplating on reducing the price of the house to 2,900 pounds.
