Welcome to Hamilton Labs

A Collaborative, Co-Working Eco-System for 3D Printing in the Real Estate, Building & Construction Space



Our Vision

To revolutionize construction technology, by building an eco-system that makes automation easy, scalable and accessible. Our approach is to design access to available excess production capacities through a range of construction technologies with focus in 3D printing & additive manufacturing.

Our Core Values

  • Teamwork and Efficiency
  • Integrity and Respect
  • Continual Improvement
  • Collaboration and Sustainability
  • Corporate Social Responsiveness
  • Research and Innovation
  • Environmental Consciousness


The era of 3D printing has evolved faster than a Japanese bullet train. This technology fits with the construction industry's desire to be more sustainable and efficient by "creating only the amount of materials needed, cutting down on waste, and also on unnecessary labour costs," according to Vincent Hui, the associate chair of Architectural Science at Ryerson University. It could ultimately make homes more affordable, too.

Innovation to Disruption

Hamilton Labs’ in-house architect and designer utilizes space that is the ultimate tool in driving behavior change, reflecting Hamilton Labs’ desire to emulate the design “culture” of uninhibited brainstorming, quick stand-up meetings, and collaboration to innovate and disrupt the norms

Disruption to Growth

3D concrete printing is a technologically advanced and innovative method that is used for constructing pre-designed building components, with the help of 3D concrete printers. The technology has proven to be able to optimize the construction industry, in terms of construction cost, time, error reduction, flexibility in design, mass customization, and environmental impact. The 3D concrete printing market serves most of the construction industries that include residential, commercial, infrastructure, and architectural.

Pioneering Green-Tech Innovations Through 3D Printing in the Real Estate, Building & Construction Industry


8 to 10 percent of the world's total CO2 emissions come from manufacturing cement. We have replaced cement and other natural resources in concrete mixes with environmentally friendly, recycled wastes and sustainable materials

- Harvard Business Review


Benefits

Cost: Being able to create a real product directly from a digital file takes away the need for transport costs and the labour involved. This reduces the whole price of building a house to a fraction of the normal cost.


Waste: Since every dimension and measurement is predetermined, there is a vast reduction in the amount of waste created in building a house. Any material left over is able to be recycled.


Specifics: There is also the ability 3D printing gives in terms of customisation and originality, with products created to exact specifications given by the customer. This opens up the potential of future buildings of all shapes and sizes – physics depending. 

3D Printing will Further Reduce CO2 Emissions

3D printing has the potential to “combine the solidity, durability and strength of the industrial age, with the nimbleness, flexibility and adaptability of the virtual age.” This mix will be critical for addressing the complex challenges of a rapidly changing and uncertain world


Additive Manufacturing offers the possibility of creating high-performance materials and processes with smaller carbon footprints



 







Our Mission

To Improve Lives

The Sustainable Development Goals was launched in 2015 to ensure everyone has access to a safely-managed household toilet by 2030. This makes sanitation central to eradicating extreme poverty.


In 2013, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated November 19 as World Toilet Day. World Toilet Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners.

To Save Lives

Right now, 600,000 of the world’s 1.7 million who die annually from unsafe water and sanitation (due primarily to open, unclean toilets) live in India. As billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates recently wrote on his blog, those kinds of conditions make a plan like Clean India worthy of both praise and financial support.


The World Bank links one in ten deaths in India to poor sanitation. From contaminated groundwater children pick up chronic infections that impair their bodies’ ability to absorb nutrients. Almost 44 million children under five, says the bank, have stunted growth, and every year over 300,000 die from diarrheal diseases.

To Tackle Climate Change

Climate change is the greatest environmental challenge facing the world today. It is essential that we act now by reducing emissions and product waste and by adapting to change. 


Now, we are set to tackle specific problems like CO2 emissions and climate change 

Disrupting The Norm

Tackling Climate Change

image91

  • 3D printing will make the construction industry more sustainable
  • 3D printing tech has evolved sufficiently to help construction companies develop materials that are environmentally friendly, cost-effective and timely
  • Some reports estimate that up to five percent of the worldwide total of CO2 emissions is caused by cement production alone
  • Generating a ton of cement also means generating a ton of CO2
  • 3D printed concrete means producing roughly 50% less CO2      * License: The text of "50% Reduction in CO2 Emissions with 3D Printed Concrete" is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License 
  • A layer of sustainability is appealing in the construction industry which is in sore need of as many doses of enviro-friendliness as it can absorb

Innovative Technology

3D printing will create a revolution in the building & construction industry and can give rise to a new segment of innovative and affordable housing as this construction methodology uses very limited labor and lesser construction material


  On Site Robotics technology might be very useful for places with different needs where there are not enough resources such as refugee camps, areas affected by extreme conditions, or urban environments facing environmental issues by only using sustainable and local materials,” said Markopoulu, Academic Director and Project Coordinator at IAAC

Disruptive Technology

image93

While most other industries have undergone tremendous changes over the past few decades, and have reaped the benefits of the process, product and service innovations, the construction sector has been hesitant to fully embrace the latest innovation opportunities and its labor productivity has stagnated or even decreased over the past 50 years


 Our aim is to disrupt this norm and offer our 3D printers and solutions to construction companies 

How is 3D Printing Beneficial for the Construction Industry?

image94

  • Substantially less amount of construction material needed for the structural components of the building, as compared to what is required for the conventional concrete forming technique.


  • Great flexibility to the architect when it comes to contour crafting, making it feasible to produce stronger and more efficient building which can last longer.


  • Construction project is executed using less labor.


  • Since there will be lesser raw material and labor costs, 3D printing technology promises to fulfill the dreams and provide inexpensive housing for millions of people who currently reside in sub-standard living conditions.
