WinSun/Yingchuang, the Chinese – and possibly the global – leader in construction 3D printing is shipping 15 3D printed wards from Suzhou to Pakistan via ocean, to help fight the worsening COVID-19 pandemic. The novel coronavirus pneumonia is common around the world and Pakistan is now experiencing a severe epidemic situation, with a total of 176,617 cases confirmed, of which 105,224 require medical assistance.

As part of the One Belt, One Road initiative, Yingchuang got in touch with NDMA (National Disaster Management Association) of Pakistan’s National Natural Disaster Management Department through the Pakistani Embassy in Shanghai. The company then designed and printed the isolation booths to be airtightness and thermally insulated to face Pakistan’s tropical climate.

The Yingchuang 3D printed isolation wards had already been used during the pandemic in Xianning, Hubei and Rizhao, Shandong. They are printed as a whole, water and electricity, doors and windows are subsequently installed. After arriving in Islamabad, the houses can be put into use only by hoisting and connecting water and electricity.

Yingchuang is able to 3D print 100 sets of isolation houses daily. After the pandemic, after transportation and hoisting, the isolation wards can be transformed for other purposes, such as characteristic hotel, park restroom, coffee shop, guard room, scenic area toilet, disaster emergency room, etc. If the house does not meet any actual requirement, it can be transported back to Yingchuang for crushing, classification, grinding and high-temperature treatment, returning it to 3D printing building materials and ready to print out new buildings.
