Reimagining housing so families can live better

Innovation helps us unlock housing solutions that are more affordable, more sustainable, and more inclusive.

Construction is one of the least innovative industries in the world. We’re changing that.

After agriculture, construction is the least digitized industry. It’s one of many reasons construction productivity has only increased by 1% per year for the past 20 years. The sector is prime for transformation.

By partnering with the market to bring innovation to a stagnant sector, we’re reducing costs and increasing accessibility to housing options. More families are securing the housing solutions they need to improve their lives and reach their full potential.

We’ve been named one of the “world’s most innovative companies” four times by Fast Company.

Innovation driving impact

To us, innovation is rethinking the expected to better meet the needs and desires of families. Sometimes this looks like using smart capital to de-risk R&D of new technologies and methodologies. Other times it’s improving processes in the housing finance market. Or using sustainable materials that reduce CO2 emissions within construction.

Innovation will take many forms, but its purpose will always stay the same: to make adequate housing more accessible for vulnerable families.

Bringing the world’s best innovation to those who need it most

In partnership with ICON, we brought the world’s first community of 3D-printed homes to Mexico — all for low-income families without adequate housing.

We’re most known for this innovative project, but 3D printing is only one of many solutions we use to address the housing crisis. In fact, it’s only a fragment of our strategy to build a more inclusive housing market.

There will never be a one-size-fits-all solution to solve the problem of inadequate housing. So we’ll never stop innovating.


Innovation is just one part of our strategy to build a more inclusive housing market.
