- Advertisment -

Dubai Municipality enters the Guinness Book of World Records with the completion of the world’s largest 3D printed building consisting of two storeys.

The building is 9.5m high and has a total area of 640 sq m. It is the first structure in the world executed by undertaking 3D printing onsite directly under external working conditions and using local components.

Dawoud Al Hajri, director-general of Dubai Municipality said: “This project is a major turning point in the construction sector at the local and regional levels and is based on the strategy of innovation in 3D printing technologies in construction. This, in turn, will increase the pace and speed of execution and completion of buildings in record time and reduce construction costs and contribute to the development of solutions to the demographics challenges by reducing the number of construction labour.”

“It will also support the Emirate’s sustainability trends using local materials and reduce construction waste, where printing is done electronically according to engineering plans directly without human intervention,” he added.

The building features geometrical wall printing, which increases the possibility of utilizing voids inside the wall to improve thermal insulation of the building, reduce energy consumption, as well as connect services within printed walls, including electricity, water, communications, air conditioning, and IT technologies.
