Printed to Perfection: Dubai Municipality Approves Construction License for 3D Printed Villa

<span “color: #221551; font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;”>Dubai Municipality has issued the first construction license for a private-owned residence using 3D-print technology. The primary objective of this pioneering project is to inspire contractors, engineers, investors, and real estate developers to embrace and integrate advanced technology into their construction operations. Situated in the Al Awir 1 area, the four-meter-high structure will be printed in a single session, as part of a global project.

<span “color: #221551; font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;”>Anticipated for completion by October 2023, the villa will be constructed entirely from locally sourced concrete. These procedures align closely with Dubai’s ambitions and the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy 2023, supporting its goal to achieve a minimum implementation of 25% 3D-printed building across the Emirate of Dubai by 2023.
