Mighty Buildings: Revolutionizing Sustainable Construction on Green Interiors Day

Good morning, Green Hero!

It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the participation of Mighty Buildings no Green Interiors Day from Milan, directly from California, to share their innovations in 3D printed houses. This company is at the forefront of sustainable construction, bringing truly revolutionary solutions.

Innovation and Sustainability

Mighty Buildings stands out for its ability to build sustainable homes in just 4 days, with a team of just 4 people, generating 99% less waste compared to traditional construction methods. This not only optimizes the construction process but also significantly contributes to reducing environmental impact.

Strength and Efficiency

One of the most impressive aspects is the material used by Mighty Buildings, known as Drown. This innovative material cures quickly, transforming into a substance 5 times stronger than concrete, both in tension and flexibility and is still 30% lighter.

The combination of 3D printing, robotics, and materials science opens new paths for construction, offering durability, efficiency, and sustainability.

Commitment to the Environment

In addition to innovation in construction, Mighty Buildings also stands out for its use of materials 60% recycled, reaffirming its commitment to sustainable practices. The advanced automation technology used in its factory allows construction to be carried out with precision, reducing waste to almost zero.

We are incredibly happy to bring Mighty Buildings, a leader in sustainable innovation, to share their discoveries and techniques with us on Green Interiors Day in Milan. It will be a unique opportunity for everyone to learn more about how 3D printing can strengthen the future of sustainable interiors.

Navigating Sustainability Certifications: A Guide by Ana Júlia Kfouri

In our ongoing commitment to sustainability, we understand the importance of certifications as globally recognized symbols of environmental commitment.

One of these certifications, the LEED, is widely recognized as symbolizing not only a sustainable masterpiece but also offering a measurable way to evaluate design strategies. However, LEED is just the beginning.

Finding the Right Certification

Each project is unique and, therefore, choosing the appropriate certification is crucial. In addition to LEED, there are other valuable certifications, each with its own focus and scope:

  • BREEAM: Aimed more at the English market, this certification has comprehensive criteria aligned with various regulations and construction methodologies, and is equally valid globally.
  • WELL: Focuses on the health of buildings, prioritizing air quality, lighting, and comfort, essential for projects that put well-being at the center.
  • EDGE: Ideal for developing countries, it balances the issue of energy, materials, and water, without the depth of LEED, but also its bureaucracy.
  • And many others…

Each certification has its importance and does not serve as a single recipe for all projects. It is crucial to understand the nuances and choose the certification that best suits the needs and objectives of your project.

Reviewing Our Healthcare and Buildings Webinar: A Pioneering Vision

Some time ago, even before the pandemic brought new global awareness on the subject, we held a webinar focused on health and buildings. The truth is that we have always believed in the critical importance of spaces that promote health and well-being, and we’re happy to see this topic getting the attention it deserves.

Health in Buildings: More Important than Ever

Certifications such as WELL and theFitwel, which focus on the health of buildings, have grown exponentially in relevance. This growth reflects a growing perception that aspects such as air quality, visual quality, thermal comfort It isacoustic are fundamental to enabling individuals to perform their roles to the best of their ability.

We at UGREEN have always been at the forefront of this discussion. The webinar we organized, brilliantly conducted by Sami, addressed these essential topics, highlighting how construction and design can directly affect our health and well-being.

Webinar Recording Access

Recognizing the continued importance of this discussion, We decided to make the recording of this webinar available for all. Whether you are a professional, a student, or simply interested in learning more about how the spaces we live and work in can influence our health, this webinar offers valuable insights and practical guidance.
