You can see the printing process, equipment, printed facades and prototypes with a tour of the studio.

BESIX 3D is a dedicated 3D Concrete Printing Division within BESIX and one of the main 3DCP service providers in the UAE since 2019.

3D printing is the latest advanced sustainable technology in construction, with a promise to reduce the overall negative global impact by allowing faster and more accurate construction of complex projects as well as cutting labor costs and producing less waste.

Hence, BESIX 3D provides a complete implementation of projects in additive construction from conceptual design to installation on site. Besix 3D has 5 successfully completed projects in the last 3 years and a big number of potential projects are in development.

During the meeting, a 3D studio, printing equipment, and the process itself will be demonstrated for visitors. The main features of the technology, its current position in construction, and prospects for further development will be explained.

Visitors and spectators will have the chance to get inclusive information of concrete printing and experience innovative technology leading to much-anticipated construction automation.
