The construction of Europe’s largest 3D-printed building in Heidelberg, Germany, is groundbreaking. The building will be a cloud and data center for Heidelberg IT Management. The construction began on March 31, 2023, and it is expected to be completed by the end of July 2023, a relatively short project timeframe.
The 3D printing process for this building is facilitated by PERI 3D Construction, a company providing the necessary expertise. They are utilizing the BOD2 3D construction printer developed by COBOD, a Denmark-based company, to shape the walls of the building. One notable advantage of this printer is its high printing speeds, allowing PERI to complete the walls in just 140 hours.
An environmentally friendly approach is being adopted for the construction, as the project aims to use 100% recycled materials. This sustainability focus is commendable and aligns with the growing global emphasis on eco-friendly practices. The construction of Europe’s largest 3D-printed building in Heidelberg showcases the advancements in construction technology and the potential for more efficient, sustainable, and innovative building methods.
