A 3D Printer Named Max ARCS Now Recognized Nationally as a Builder

SQ4D’s 3D printer Max ARCS has been formally inducted into the Long Island Builders Institute, marking a first of its kind for a construction 3D printing company to be peer-recognized as a builder. As a leader in the construction technology space, SQ4D has developed its patent-pending ARCS (Autonomous Robotic Construction System) technology to robotically build a structure’s footings, slab, foundation walls, interior walls, exterior walls, and roof. All of this is printed on-site and accounts for over 50% of the total construction.

SQ4D said it aims to revolutionize the field of construction by combining automation, additive manufacturing, and sustainable building methods to produce cost-efficient structures, while improving worker safety. The official induction demonstrates the rapidly growing adoption of 3D printing technologies within the construction industry, SQ4D said.

Formed in 1941, the Long Island Builders Institute (LIBI) is an association of building industry professionals; LIBI is a local chapter of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the New York State Builders Association (NYSBA). The organizations represent more than 140,000 members, including builders, developers, general contractors, and remodelers. LIBI member Charles Weinraub is one of Long Island’s most active developers. Weinraub has updated his business model for 2023 to build exclusively using 3D printing technology.

“The construction industry hasn’t been disrupted in 100 years”, said Weinraub. “SQ4D’s revolutionary technology enables me to deliver a far better product in less time at a lower cost.”  Already included in Weinraub’s upcoming plans are a number of 3D printed projects, such as a 25-lot subdivision as well as a 26-unit senior rental community, both scheduled to break ground in 2023. “It’s time to drop the hammer and let the 3D printers do their work as we push the construction industry forward”, said Kristen Henry, chief technology officer at SQ4D, who accepted the LIBI membership on behalf of Max. SQ4D is a construction technology company from Patchogue, N.Y., that produces 3D printers for building residential homes and commercial buildings.
