U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) - Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL)
Megan Kreiger is a Mechanical Engineer at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) - Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL). As a pioneer in the field of Additive Construction (AC), Megan Kreiger took a new approach to modernization of construction through the scalability of 3D printing. Without formwork, AC technology can create complex custom concrete structures to enhance aesthetics and performance at lower cost, while making concrete work less physically taxing. As program manager for the Additive Construction research program at the ERDC-CERL, Megan led the development of large scale deployable construction 3D printers that print on varied terrain, promote mobility, ease of build, flexibility of materials, faster construction, designed to be rugged, and print out in the open using conventional construction materials and reinforcement. Ms. Kreiger led demonstrations printing full-scale buildings, a bridge, and infrastructure components; most of which are the first in the Americas, if not the world. Megan Kreiger is internationally recognized as 2021 NASA Silver Medal Achievement team awardee, 2021 Michigan Tech Outstanding Young Alumni, 2020 BuiltWorlds’ Maverick, 2018 ENR Top 25 Newsmaker, 2018 USACE Innovation Awardee, and in news around the world. Ms. Kreiger earned a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics in 2009 and M.S. in Material Science and Engineering from Michigan Technological University in 2012.
