Peri and Strabag create Austria’s first 3D-printed building

German construction manufacturer Peri and Austrian contractor Strabag have created Europe’s largest 3D-printed office space and Austria’s first 3D-printed building.

The 125 sq.metre building was printed in 45 hours at Strabag’s asphalt mixing plant in Hausleiten, Austria, using a dry mortar supplied by Lafarge and applied using Cobod‘s Bod2 3D printer.

The project follows Peri and Cobod’s successful 3D printed house in Germany earlier this year.

Thomas Imbacher, chief innovation & marketing officer at Peri, said: “Just under a year ago, we printed Germany’s first residential building with a BOD2 printer from our Danish partner COBOD.

“Now, together with our partners Strabag and Lafarge, we are bringing this new form of construction to Austria and are delighted with the first printed office building in Hausleiten.” 

Berthold Kren, chief executive at Lafarge Austria, said: “Printed buildings will help to establish a new, digitally and environmentally advanced language for concrete.

“The intelligent material is convincing in its application and provides a high degree of architectural freedom in design. It allows us to build more with less.”

Klemens Haselsteinerm, board member at Strabag, added: “Concrete printing gives the construction industry an important boost of innovation and represents an exciting addition to the range of available construction methods.

“With this practical test, we want to further develop the technology of 3D concrete printing together with our partners Peri and Lafarge. The joint planning and design for Hausleiten has already yielded some important insights for the future.”
