Don’t Build Forms
Make Thinner Walls
Use Less Concrete
Use Normal Rebar
Faster Slip Forming
We have developed an admixture and inline-delivery system that allows 3D printing – or very rapid slip forming – with normal, delivered, pumpable concrete.

“Digitally-controlled placement of concrete is our inevitable future.”
We work at the interface between machine control and finished concrete structure. We developed the admixture and delivery system that allows vertically-shaping fluid-concrete, rather than traditional forming. The vertical shape can be defined by simple or sophisticated construction hardware, or new technology – such as 3D printing, but using essentially normal concrete.
A Simple System
As SpaceCrete allows stacking pumped-concrete without forming, it opens up so many new ways to build with it. Your normal-delivered concrete can become 3D print material, with a very-low-dose of 3D-admix injected into the pump line. Or, you can vertically slip-form very rapidly, with pumpable concrete. The form pressure is gone the moment you stop vibrating it.
Rapid Slip Form
The Slipscreed can define a finished vertical plane of concrete as fast as you can pump it. Place solid concrete walls over rough excavations, insulating foam panels, or any vertical surface.
Only 0.25% of 3D-Admix transforms normal concrete into SpaceCrete. A 5” slump becomes zero slump inline – but with extreme shear thinning – so you can still pump it and work it as needed. Why build expensive forms? You can “create form” directly, or with digital control. Build Space, with conCrete
Use machine-control to create a concrete retaining wall – easier, faster, more economically, and less hazardous than spraying shotcrete.
