Florida office opens to support North American growth in 2023
Dutch 3D concrete printing company, CyBe, has opened a company in Florida and is planning to build several housing projects in the United States. Founded in 2013, CyBe Construction brings a decade of knowledge and experience from worldwide 3D concrete printing projects. CyBe’s North American branch will support the company’s growth in the coming years.
Berry Hendriks, founder and CEO of CyBe Construction, says, “We see excellent opportunities to expand our U.S. investments even further in the coming years and we are specifically focused on the country’s sustainable housing market. There, we see a strong demand for affordable (rental) housing, which seems to have only increased during Covid-19, heightened by the effects of climate changes.”
Knowledge and experience in 3D concrete printing
CyBe Construction Florida LLC will be led by Florida native James Light. James has been involved in 3D concrete printing for the past 6 years and successfully 3D printed the first permitted home in Florida in 2021 using a Cobod system. James has been a Certified Building Contractor in Florida since 2007 operating a small family construction company out of his hometown of Tallahassee, Florida. James brings industry knowledge and experience in integrating 3d printed structures into the mainstream construction processes. His passion for finding solutions for affordable housing coupled with a focus on innovative construction methods is in step with CyBe’s philosophy. “Berry and his CyBe team have a holistic approach to what is a very fragmented construction industry. Their priorities are what are so appealing to me as a builder in the industry and why I believe CyBe will have long term success. I am thrilled to be a part of his team and ready to get to work!”, said James Light.
Global housing crisis
CyBe will build relationships with American companies to help solve the country’s housing issues. CyBe’s three pillars — technology, process innovation, and social prosperity — work in tandem towards creating a better society. This unique combination of principles defines CyBe’s position in the construction industry and will be brought to the American market.
CyBe is one of the world market leaders in 3D concrete printing. 3D concrete printing allows companies to build faster in a more affordable and sustainable way, offering incredible value to the construction industry. CyBe’s 3D concrete printing solution addresses the global housing crisis through automation and a new approach to materials. Their proprietary printable mortar cures in just 3 minutes, which enables the printers to operate at maximum efficiency. The company provides the full package: hardware, software, materials, service, designs, and 10-day training at any location.
CyBe becomes an ASTM member
CyBe has joined ASTM, helping to contribute to a more sustainable and transparent industry.
ASTM’s 12,000+ standards are referenced globally and help to improve the lives of millions every day. They ensure that materials and processes perform safely and efficiently, and they enable consumer confidence.
Why 3D concrete printing?
Future-focused companies in the construction industry have their sights set on 3D concrete printing. It’s an efficient method of building that minimizes materials and labor costs and maximizes production. Particularly in a housing shortage period, 3D concrete printers bring incredible value to the construction industry.
3D concrete printing is an ideal way to construct Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC). PPVC is a way of constructing completed and finished units in an off-site location and then installing them into place on-site. CyBe Construction’s PPVC system is uniquely developed for 3D concrete printing Gantry system and cuts traditional construction costs in half.
Experience in the construction industry
CyBe is the legacy of Hendriks Construction, a 100-year-old industry leader. Led by Berry Hendriks, CyBe’s cutting-edge 3D printing approach to construction warranted its own professional incorporation and in 2013, CyBe and CyBe Construction were established. Shortly after, the first 3D concrete printing hardware, software, and materials were developed for industrial use.
Both Hendriks and CyBe Construction share a vision for an improved society — this vision is in the DNA of the CyBe organization. For CyBe, this means enabling companies to build faster with less resources, producing affordable, sustainable, and ecologically durable constructions.
CyBe sells 3D concrete printers worldwide and is the main 3D printing contractor in the Netherlands. In addition to 3D concrete printers, CyBe produces high-quality proprietary tools including Chysel and Artysan software, CyBe Mortar, and the CyBe Lybrary learning platform. CyBe also offers design and engineering services to clients. This holistic approach simplifies the complex construction process and creates more efficient workflows. It allows companies to construct with 3D printing and benefit from faster and more sustainable production.
CyBe Mortar is a stand-out in the 3D construction arena. Producing locally significantly lowers transportation costs and reduces CO2 emissions by 32%. CyBe Mortar sets in only three minutes and achieves structural strength in one hour. This results in a fast and efficient printing process, reduced costs, and a sustainable outcome.
