3D-Printed Gatehouse Revealed as Landmark in Dubai’s Residential Community

3D printing technology is revolutionizing the construction industry in Dubai, with the ability to construct fully functional buildings in a matter of weeks. At the entrance of Nakheel’s Tilal Al Furjan residential complex, a 3D-printed gatehouse now stands tall, serving as a landmark for the community.

Printstone3D, a Dubai-based 3D printing technology for construction company, was responsible for the innovative project. According to the company, the gatehouse features a canopy that is nearly triple the size of the building itself, accommodating a variety of cables and pipes in a confined space.

Printstone3D is primarily focused on constructing one to two-storey residential buildings and aims to expand to high-rise buildings in the future. CEO Nikolay Kudryashov stated that a 120sqm villa can be printed in two weeks, with larger villas taking up to a month or three months for a G+1 villa.

The gatehouse project was completed in just 20 days with a three-member crew consisting of a printer operator, mixing machine operator, and labour assistant. This efficient construction method reduces the need for skilled workers compared to traditional construction methods.

Dubai aims to have 25% of its buildings constructed using 3D printing technology by 2030, with Trakhees issuing the first license for construction using this technology in the city. Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, chairman of the PCFC, emphasized the benefits of 3D printing technology in reducing labor costs by 80% and slashing construction project duration by 60%.

With advancements in 3D printing technology, the future of construction in Dubai looks promising and eco-friendly.
