Québec consortium receives $1.2M to research, construct sustainable 3D-printed modular buildings


A newly formed consortium of experts from various postsecondary institutions and college centres for the transfer of technologies in Québec has received funding to support research on constructing sustainable modular buildings using 3D printing. The core objectives of the consortium include research on building these 3D printed constructions more affordably and with greener materials to help address the province’s projected housing shortage. The consortium aims to design and assemble a functional prototype by 2025. The project is led by Cégep de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue instructor David Laliberté. The project has received $900K in funding from the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies as well as $300K in in-kind funding over three years from project partners.
