Europe’s Largest 3D-Printed Building Under Construction
A data center in Heidelberg, Germany, set to be Europe’s largest 3D-printed building, is under construction with a completion date in July.
The project requires only 140 working hours and two on-site workers for the majority of the process.
Using 100% recyclable concrete with a 55% lower CO2 footprint than traditional concrete, the building will be 54 meters long, 11 meters wide, and 9 meters high.
The construction method offers reduced labor and material usage, with 70% fewer materials compared to conventional buildings.
Despite requiring pauses to set layers and install utilities, 3D-printed construction enables unique architectural designs and could revolutionize the industry.
