Dubai unveils fully 3D printed building

Dubai Municipality on Wednesday unveiled the world’s largest 3D printed structure at the Warsan area in the emirate.

 .

Senior municipality senior officials said the two-storey building measures 640 sq. m in area, and is 9.5m high. Dawoud Al Hajri, Director General of Dubai Municipality, shared the planning, design, and construction aspects of the building with the media, and hoped that Dubai would become a hub for such buildings in the near future.

 .

The building was constructed – or printed – in a year’s time, and a project of this nature can cost anything between Dh800,000 to Dh1 million, which is 50 per cent lower than the cost of construction using conventional methods.​

    An amazing achievement can I ask if recycled concrete was used, I remember driving past the concrete works in the UAE and cement is one of the largest producers of CO2 and a big impact on global warming recycled concrete reduces that.
