IO Podcast | Episode 13
On August 22, Ocean Builders launched their ecofriendly land and sea pods (houses) in Linton Bay Marina, Panama. With 3D-printed architecture and high-tech infrastructure, Ocean Builders is manufacturing an innovative and self-sustainable lifestyle.
In this episode, Grant Romundt—CEO at Ocean Builders—explains why they chose Panama as the destination to start the groundbreaking business. Romundt, who has lived in sea pods for over five years, shares his experience living closer to nature in a cutting-edge way.
He also reveals that other countries are asking Ocean Builders to start building pods. His priority, however, remains in Panama, where the firm has contributed to community development. Creating skilled and high-tech jobs—and training locals—Ocean Builders has become the largest employer in the area.
