Hamilton Labs BE3DP Technologies announced a collaboration with One Existence Foundation, a United States based Non-Profit Organization, One Existence’s concept is centred around creating affordable homes that are both sustainable and practical. By using recycled plastic and hemp materials, One Existence constructs homes that are eco-friendly and affordable.

One Existence was founded with a vision that innovative architecture is not just about creating beautiful and impressive structures, but also about making a positive impact on people’s lives.

Hamilton Labs BE3DP Technologies, a collaborative and co-working eco-system in the Built Environment 3D Printing spaces, and Singapore based Hamilton Holdings Pte Ltd have been in the 3D concrete printing, 3DCP, space since 2017 and have collaborated with partners in Singapore, Malaysia, India, the US, Thailand and the Netherlands. Hamilton Labs aims to revolutionise industrial additive manufacturing by building an eco-system that makes automation in the built environment easy, scalable, and accessible.

“We’ve evolved into a BE3DP ecosystem where we don’t just stop at 3DCP. We focus on the Built Environment”.

– Willy Ng, GM, Hamilton Holdings

Hamilton Labs BE3DP believes in ‘Save Our Oceans to Save Ourselves’

Hamilton Labs began our BE3DP journey in 2017 in India to improve lives through better sanitation using innovative technologies, methodologies and materials and Better Life Foundation is an NGO associated with Hamilton Holdings to improve lives, save lives.

One Existence Foundation is a movement dedicated to building a better world for all. The mission is to create affordable and sustainable housing solutions for those who need it most, while also making a positive impact on the environment.

One Existence, together with Hamilton Labs BE3DP and Better Life Foundation, aim to be at the forefront of 3D printing technology in the construction industry, 3DCP. The collaboration will implement an innovative approach that allows them to use recycled and Ocean Bound Plastic and turn it into high-quality building materials, providing a solution to the mounting plastic waste problem. The collaboration believes that we can make a difference by reusing materials that would otherwise end up in landfills, supporting the Circular Economy.

One Existence Foundation’s journey from 500 to 1 million bottles and cans is a testament to the extraordinary power of collective action.

Azad Arnaud, Founder & CEO of One Existence is a team player within our 3D printing company for affordable housing. With an unyielding passion for excellence and a fierce determination to make a difference, Azad is a true visionary and young entrepreneur who is dedicated to changing the world.

He has a background in industrial design from the Parsons School of Design and residential construction experience. He is a deep lover of nature and is passionate about redesigning our built environment to be in symbiosis with the Earth.

According to the National Geographic, Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues, as rapidly increasing production of disposable plastic products overwhelms the world’s ability to deal with them. Plastic pollution is most visible in developing Asian and African nations, where garbage collection systems are often inefficient or non-existent. But the developed world, especially in countries with low recycling rates, also has trouble properly collecting discarded plastics. Plastic trash has become so ubiquitous it has prompted efforts to write a global treaty negotiated by the United Nations.

“Millions of animals are killed by plastics every year, from birds to fish to other marine organisms. Nearly 700 species, including endangered ones, are known to have been affected by plastics. Nearly every species of seabird eats plastics.”, wrote the National Geographic.

According to Willy Ng, “One Existence Foundation, Hamilton Labs BE3DP and Better Life Foundation will put into place innovative BE3DP technologies, methodologies and materials to keep plastic waste out of the Habitat we live in by Recycling to be Sustainable.”

“Beyond the construction of the 3D printed home, our vision extends to creating a profound impact on the lives of the homeless and those in need. Through our foundation, we seek to empower individuals with the resources and opportunities they need to break free from the cycle of poverty. By providing essential support and uplifting communities, we aim to instil hope and drive positive change.”, Azad said. “At the heart of One Existence Foundation’s mission stands an ambitious architectural endeavour — a 3D printed home with recycled and Ocean Bound Plastic.”.

“Ambitious but not insurmountable!”, reacted Willy
