3DXB GROUP, which specialises in mixed concrete manufacturing, will launch its 3D printing technologies in the UAE
The company’s expertise will enable architects, engineers, contractors and developers to unlock the full potential of 3D printing technology in constructing sustainable and futuristic buildings.
Dubai recently issued a decree regulating the use of 3D printing in the construction sector in the emirate. The decree intends to promote Dubai as a regional and international hub for 3D printing technology. The new legislation aims to improve efficiencies in construction projects, increase the competitiveness of the local industry, reduce waste and attract leading companies in the sector to Dubai as part of a larger plan to spur economic growth and promote the adoption of advanced technologies in the emirate.
By eliminating the need for traditional formwork and reducing manual labour, 3D printing can significantly shorten project timelines and reduce costs. Additionally, the precision of 3D printing technology ensures consistent quality, minimising the risk of errors and enhancing structural integrity. Moreover, 3DXB GROUP prioritises sustainability by optimising resource consumption. The reduced waste and improved energy efficiency associated with 3D printing contribute to a greener and more sustainable construction process.
The 3D printing construction market is projected to reach $1,617bn by 2030, at a CAGR of 207.1% from 2023 to 2030.
"We are extremely excited to introduce 3D-based construction to the region through our innovative approach. By combining cutting-edge technology with our holistic approach, we aim to redefine the construction landscape and set new industry standards. Our mission aligns perfectly with Dubai's vision of becoming a global leader in 3D buildings by 2030,” said Badar Rashid AlBlooshi, chairman of 3DXB GROUP.
“With a mission to reshape the way we construct, we aim to address the inefficiencies, high costs, and environmental impact associated with traditional construction methods. By harnessing the power of 3D printing technology, our goal at 3DXB GROUP is to bring about a paradigm shift in the way we envision and create buildings,” added AlBlooshi.
