Manufacture bespoke elements at a fraction of the cost, time and environmental footprint with 3D printing technology. Requiring less time, labour and natural resources usage, it provides a more responsible and agile answer to some of the most complex and cost-prohibitive construction challenges.

 

The benefits of cutting edge 3-D printing technology enables to make construction more efficient combined with the exceptional performances of LafargeHolcim ink ( rheology, strength, durability). Tomorrow’s ideas can take shape today, building more with less and ensuring your competitiveness by exploring the endless possibilities of a highly malleable yet durable concrete material formed in just about any shape you can design with printed slender and complex elements.

01 - Optimization

 
  • Materials savings: the optimization of material use by precisely injecting the right amount of ultra-high performance concrete at just the right points in your structure c increased construction speed. Avoiding formworks reduces cost, design-flexibility and waste.
  • Speed of construction: 3D Printing allows one answer to the productivity gap of construction with the ability to build up to twice as fast .
  • Flexibility and scalability: 3D printing can be leveraged both for on-site or off-site applications. The seamless integration from design to production and flexibility of deposition enables mass-customization with no extra-cost, liberating designers & engineers creativity
  • Security: Protect workers from the most hazardous and tedious tasks on construction sites.

02 - Advantages

 

3D printing opens up almost unlimited possibilities in both building and civil engineering fields.

The only limitation becomes the extent of your imagination. We can help you bring to life projects including, but definitely not limited to:

  • Buildings (residential or tertiary) and individual houses
  • Infrastructures (footbridges, telecom masts, wind turbines, shore protection…)
  • Artificial reefs
  • Repair: Find ways to reuse and repair what’s already there to extend the life cycle of any existing structures.
  • Architectural and decorative elements, urban furniture
