Why did we start Quantum Assembly?

Because everyone should have a home they love.

When our founder, Ryan Olsen, saw a Head Start teacher forced to leave their home because they could no longer afford to stay, he knew something had to change. He saw no solution to the affordable housing crisis that was simultaneously:

  • Realistically high-quality and low-cost to build at scale,
  • Respectful to the inhabitants of the building,
  • And sustainable for the environment.

So he assembled a team of forward-thinkers who were equally as frustrated by current manufacturing and construction methods, and they developed their own. They’ve rethought the materials, fabrication, and build methods, leveraging high-precision automation to change how we build houses.
