“Because it is end-to-end digital fabrication, if there’s a design change late in the process that’s not an added cost for us. It’s just a change in the model which then gets converted automatically into the code that runs the 3D printer and the robots.”

New Avenue Homes is a market network of a team of designers and contractors and a system that uses transparency and data to create efficiencies and reduced risk in custom designed and built ADUs.
“Remodels (to create ADUs) are repurposing existing space. It’s hard to beat that on the sustainability side when you’re using existing assets – sustainability AND price-wise.”
– Kevin Casey
