Dubai plans to build the world’s first administrative office 3D printer




Dubai announced that it intends to construct a small administrative building by using a 3-d printer for the first time in the world, in an effort to develop technology that would reduce costs and save time.

Technology has become a three-dimensional printing using a special printer to manufacture 3D objects from digital design in manufacturing worldwide, but so far little use in the construction sector.

He said Mohammed Al gergawi, UAE Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs, said Tuesday that a prototype of a one-story building, which is 185 square meters, will print layer by layer using a height of about 6 meters.

Al gergawi said that will then be assembled on site within a few weeks. It will build interior structural components by 3D printer with concrete and plaster, fiberglass-reinforced plastic.

Dubai plans to build this project in cooperation with “wisnu” WINSU, a Chinese company, pioneer in the field of 3D printers use to build houses.

Al gergawi cited studies estimated that 3D printing technology can help reduce the time it takes to build 50 to 70% and labour costs by 50 to 80%.
