    Commitment to Sustainability

    In 2022, Lennar partnered with ICON, a 3-D printing company, to create the largest onsite 3-D printed neighborhood in Georgetown, Texas. Wolf Ranch comprises three- to four-bedroom homes with prices starting in the mid-$400,000s. 

    “We are very pleased to partner with ICON and the architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group in building a first-of-its-kind, printed home community that combines innovative designs with sustainable features at an affordable price,” said Stuart Miller, the executive chairman. “Given the housing shortage that persists across the country, it has never been more important to innovate to find new methods of construction that will enable greater design flexibility and greater production at affordable prices.” 

    Delivered at speed and scale using a fleet of ICON’s Vulcan robotic construction systems, software, and advanced materials, each home’s full wall system – including interior and exterior walls – is produced with less waste and more design freedom. 

    Further sustainability is offered in the form of renewable solar energy. All homes will be powered by the sun with rooftop solar panels and will feature components from its Connected Home package, including a Ring Video Doorbell Pro, a Schlage Encode Smart WiFi deadbolt, and a Honeywell Home T6 Pro WiFi smart thermostat. Plus, each home will come equipped with the Wolf Ranch security package. 

    It has previously been recognized for its environmental efforts. In 2011 the Environmental Protection Agency awarded it an Energy Star Leadership in Housing Award. The EPA acknowledged the building of 362 Energy-Star-qualified homes the previous year. The environmental benefits were equivalent to eliminating the emissions from almost 178 cars, saving more than a million pounds of coal, or planting more than 293 acres of trees.  

    In 2019 the company also received an Energy Star Market Leader Award for its properties in Arizona and Charlotte, North Carolina.
