PERI 3D prints a 125 m2 office extension in Austria

PERI latest project is a 125 m2 3D printed office extension. Described as a premiere in Europe, the project will certainly make you recall the residential building extension the company built for a Bavarian family. The scaffolding and formwork manufacturer and 3D concrete printing company has worked with construction technology group STRABAG as part of this project.

Using the now famous BOD2 – 3D construction printer from COBOD that could achieve one meter per second in printing speed – the team completed the shell construction in Hausleiten in around 45 hours of pure printing time.

“The building in Hausleiten is a milestone for STRABAG, for PERI, for all involved. And a milestone for the Austrian construction industry as a whole,” said Thomas Imbacher, Member of the Board for Innovation & Marketing at PERI SE. “We are convinced that 3D printing of buildings will be part of the future of construction as this technology offers solutions for challenges that are currently occupying our industry: Digitalization, efficiency, shortage of skilled workers and much more.”

As a reminder, 3D printing in general allows design freedom compared to classic concrete construction, such as architecturally appealing rounded shapes. This office building in Austria impresses with its unusual architectural form and the structures of the printed concrete are recognizable as a design element on the facade, which gives the building a special appearance in addition to the cloverleaf shape.

Henrik Lund-Nielsen, Founder & General Manager of COBOD International, said: “We are proud to see more and more buildings being 3D printed with our BOD2 printer as a consequence of our leading position in the market”. He continued: “Our superior technology is documented by COBOD’s technology 3D printing multiple applications other than just low-rise residential buildings, such as windmill tower bases, concrete pipe supports, schools and now an office building. We firmly believe that 3D construction printing will revolutionize the construction industry due to its ability to automate and industrialize the construction process”.

In 2018 PERI Group acquired a minority stake in COBOD. Since then, both companies have worked closely together to push the boundaries of 3D construction printing. With the printing project in Hausleiten, the PERI 3D printing team have now successfully completed six printing projects with COBOD’s 3D construction printers. These include the first 3D printed house in Germany, the first 3D printed multi-family house/apartment building in Europe and now the office extension in Hausleiten.
