3D Printing – Limitless Potential

Construction is one of the oldest professions in the world and unique in the way that it has left visible monuments that allow us to track its evolution. From the old to the new, we can still see examples of every technological step forward we’ve ever taken.

Today we’re going to take a look at what could represent the one of these major steps. Technology 3D printing holds nearly limitless potential, from creating niche replacement parts for machines on a jobsite, printing extremely precise building materials and replacing/augmenting human labor in potentially hazardous situations like this robot that is being designed to 3d printed bridges.

This technology continues to advance at an amazing rate. We’ve seen it evolve from creating small toys and models to printing out entire homes. Once this comes into the mainstream, you’ll see the speed and ease of projects drastically increase.

3D printing technology represents a very exciting and logical next step in construction and should be followed closely and integrated quickly into your business model.

Premier Team Hits the Field – Habitat For Humanity GTA

On Tuesday May 19th, the Premier Team put on their hardhats, construction boots and gloves and made their way over to the Brimley Rd. Construction Site to partake in the “Adopt-a-Day Program”. This program offers volunteers the chance to adopt a “build” day and participate among many other volunteers across the GTA. With the combination of teamwork, optimism and dedication, by the end of the day the drywall component at the Brimley Rd. Construction Site was well on its way. Volunteering time and providing financial support can create a tremendous difference.

 

An impact study conducted on Habitat Toronto Partner Families in 2012 revealed how affordable home ownership strengthens communities and opens doors for low-income youth:

 

  • 76% of homeowners report an improvement in children’s school grades
  • 81% report an improvement in children’s social lives
  • 92% of respondents say they will remain in their HFHT home for a very long time or can’t imagine ever moving

 

Everyone on the Premier team can agree that this experience was very positive and provided them with an entirely different outlook on how important it is to help break down the cycle of poverty. This program also offers anyone the opportunity to continue to volunteer- simply sign up online using the volunteer scheduler.

 

Remember, a little bit goes a long way!
