On Thursday, October 27, The IQ® Brew will feature Treyvon Perry and Sebin Joseph, with Von Perry INC. Von Perry is a Digital Construction Company, bringing two disruptions in the construction sector. Introducing a new architectural language and 3D Printed construction, Von Perry consolidates and automates the construction process from design to delivery. Now customers can get their homes custom designed and constructed using 3D Printed Construction. Von Perry is the pioneer in implementing 3D Printed Construction for custom build construction projects, and they are working on multiple residential construction projects around the State. The company was featured in various news media, including Dallas Morning News, Dallas Business Journal, Spectrum One, and Dallas Innovates.

Von Perry's 21-year-old CEO, Treyvon Perry, has been preparing for this since he founded the startup at age 17. He and his co-founder, 27-year-old CTO Sebin Joseph, are pioneering a new way to build concrete 3D-printed homes using regular concrete—and aim to prove the concept for DFW and beyond.
