PERI, the company that built the first multi-story 3D printed buildings in Germany, is now working on Austria’s first 3D printed building, using a BOD2 construction 3D printer, in Hausleiten, Lower Austria. The project is conducted together with Austria-based STRABAG, one of the largest construction companies in Europe.

The office extension, measuring around 125 square meters (1,346 sqft), is being printed on the STRABAG company premises. The pure printing time for the building extension is expected to be approx. 45 hours. The printing material for this project, “Tector Print”, comes from Holcim / Lafarge, while the building design was created by MENSE – KORTE. The building is being printed using the BOD2 construction 3D printer from  COBOD International.

When the printing project in Hausleiten will be completed, PERI will have successfully completed five printing projects in one year. These include the first-ever printed house in Germany in Beckum, the first multi-family house and largest printed building in Europe (Wallenhausen), the company’s first printed house in the USA (Tempe/Arizona), and an apartment building extension in Lindau.

Active in the construction industry for over 50 years as a pioneer in formwork and scaffolding technology, PERI has been investing in 3D construction printing to expedite the industrialization of the construction process. The objective of making this technology a commercial success is driven by the goal of constructing a greater number of buildings in a shorter space of time at a lower cost.

By adding more intelligent designs and optimized use of materials to the mix, 3D construction printing can also pave the way for a built environment with greater sustainability. In light of the global developments of “labor and housing shortages”, increasing productivity is a significant challenge for the construction industry. 3D construction printing technology addresses precisely these issues. The current focus is primarily on the segments of residential construction and individual prefabricated parts.
