A two-storey building that will be part of Dubai municipality’s innovation centre is registered as the world’s largest 3D-printed structure. The building, unveiled in October 2019 and registered by by the Guinness World Records, stands at 9.5 metres high and spans across 640 square metres. It could be the starting point of Dubai government’s plans to turn the emirate into a hub for the 3D printing technology. The municipality says the building is 60 percent more sustainable than average buildings, using half of the number of construction workers. The reduction of the labour force needed to construct the building reduced the cost of production from 2.5 million dirhams to 1 million dirhams.
