Holcim has announced its investment in COBOD International, a global leader in 3D construction printing.

Holcim and COBOD have already collaborated on a range of building projects, from 3D-printed windmill tower bases with GE, to the world’s first 3D printed school in Malawi and Africa’s largest 3D-printed affordable housing project in Kenya.

Edelio Bermejo, head of global R&D at Holcim, said: “We are continuously expanding our range of building solutions to build better with less, working to improve living standards for all in a sustainable way.

“3D concrete printing will help us meet these goals. In close collaboration with COBOD, we look forward to expanding our TectorPrint range of proprietary 3D printing ink.”
