Low-Carbon 3D-Printed Foundation by Hyperion Robotics
Hyperion Robotics

Hyperion Robotics has partnered with Iberdrola and Peikko to create the first 3D-printed optmised foundation that uses 75% fewer materials compared to traditionally built concrete foundations.

The project was commissioned by leading international renewable energy company Iberdrola and encompasses the efficiency, sustainability and health and safety benefits of Hyperion's technology.

It sees the transformation of a traditionally functional object into an aesthetically pleasing structural element, using only one quarter of materials normally employed in the process. The result is a lighter structure that incorporates recycled waste materials and reduces eCO2 by approximately 60% by using less cement and simplifying transportation and logistics.


This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
