PERI, the company that built the first multi-story 3D printed buildings in Germany, is now working on Austria’s first 3D printed building, using a BOD2 construction 3D printer, in Hausleiten, Lower Austria. The pure printing time for the building extension is expected to be approx. The printing material for this project, “Tector Print”, comes from Holcim / Lafarge, while the building design was created by MENSE – KORTE. The building is being printed using the BOD2 construction 3D printer from COBOD International. These include the first-ever printed house in Germany in Beckum, the first multi-family house and largest printed building in Europe, the company’s first printed house in the USA, and an apartment building extension in Lindau. Active in the construction industry for over 50 years as a pioneer in formwork and scaffolding technology, PERI has been investing in 3D construction printing to expedite the industrialization of the construction process. By adding more intelligent designs and optimized use of materials to the mix, 3D construction printing can also pave the way for a built environment with greater sustainability. 3D construction printing technology addresses precisely these issues.
