VALLEY CENTER, KS – On Tuesday(9/7/22) evening, the City of Valley Center gave final

approval for a 3D-printed community of homes. This will be the first in the State of

Kansas and one of only a handful in the United States.

Also announced at the meeting was the name of the community development -

Sunflower Valley. According to CC3D, the development company, the name was

chosen to honor Kansas and the City of Valley Center for being the first in the state and

leading the way in the nation.

CC3D, a startup arm of Crain Company, is a forward-thinking Kansas company leading

the way by developing and implementing creative solutions for innovative building

methods. CC3D was developed to provide high-quality, affordable, and sustainable

housing through creatively designed, efficiently built 3D-printed homes.

“The City of Valley Center is thrilled to provide innovative solutions like this for our

community. We would like to thank CC3D, the Casado-McKay group, and the

engineering firm SEH on this impressive timeline that has been achieved with the

Sunflower Valley project. We encourage everyone from around the state to come visit

us once construction begins.” Said Mayor Lou Cicirello.

“We are excited to be moving forward with the City of Valley Center to bring the first

community of 3D-printed homes to Kansas. 3D-printed homes can revolutionize the

housing/construction industry by providing high-quality, cost-effective and sustainable

housing options in less time than traditional builds,” said Eric Ross, CEO, CC3D. “We

are looking forward to starting the process this fall and anticipate we will have homes

available next year.”

CC3D will be using design from local architects and finish work from local contractors

for the innovative project. Bidding for projects is expected to start in the next month.
