CVP Windows & Doors was proud to help make a ground-breaking dream come true for a Williamsburg, Virginia family by partnering with Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg
in building the ﬁrst ever 3D-printed Habitat for Humanity home
in the country.The three-bedroom, two-bath 3D-printed home, outﬁtted with entry doors and windows donated by CVP, is a 1,200 square foot slice of technological history right here in Coastal Virginia. For this ﬁrst-of-its-kind home, a custom-manufactured window solution was needed. That’s where CVP stepped up to design and donate 13 DHA4 Double-Hung vinyl windows. CVP also donated two ﬁberglass entry doors for the 3D-printed home.
All of the windows donated by CVP meet Energy Star®
and DP50 standards, making CVP the provider of choice for this unique 3D Habitat Home build. With energy eﬃciency in mind, CVP’s windows provide an additional boost to the energy saving qualities of this 3D printed concrete home. With the addition of a Low-E 366 glass upgrade, CVP windows easily met the team’s EarthCraft
smart-building standards to reduce utility bills.The exterior of the 3D printed home was built in just 28 hours using an Alquist 3D printer
, with the primary building material being concrete, rather than lumber.
CVP was honored to participate in this innovative home build designed by Alquist and the Virginia Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech. The home comes equipped with Virginia Tech’s Raspberry-Pi based monitoring system which allows the homeowner to monitor indoor environment, security, and energy consumption.
At CVP, we share the vision of corporate responsibility exempliﬁed by other in-kind sponsors including LL Flooring and Ferguson Enterprises.
“For us to be able to donate the windows and doors really made us feel good and we were happy to do it,” stated CVP President/Owner Barry Taylor, “We believe this project is a huge win for our Coastal Virginia community and the future of the building industry.”
