- Leading the charge for using innovative building technology in the form of 3D construction printers, PERI 3D Construction is set to create Europe’s first-ever 3D printed football club facility and public building.
- This initiative, located in Nordkirchen, Germany, exemplifies the transformative shift towards 3D construction printing in various sectors beyond residential construction.
Utilizing the largest printer configuration to date by PERI 3D Construction, a COBOD BOD2 model measuring 25 meters (83 feet) long, 15 meters (50 feet) wide, and 10 meters (33 feet) high, the future SC Capelle football clubhouse will boast a usable floor space of approximately 330 m2 (3.550 SF). The estimated completion time using 3D printing technology is projected to be only approximately 140 hours, highlighting the technology’s potential for rapid, efficient, and sustainable construction.
Dr. Fabian Meyer-Brötz, Managing Director of PERI 3D Construction, stated: “In the face of significant challenges such as a skilled worker shortage and stagnating productivity in construction, 3D construction printing offers an urgently needed solution to build faster, cheaper, and with less material usage.”
The unique design for the building is the creative work of Steinhoff Architekten, an innovative architectural firm known for embracing forward-thinking construction methods. The clubhouse will be used by SC Capelle playing in the third division in Germany.
This ground-breaking project sets the stage for the continued evolution of construction methodologies, proving that 3D construction printing is a viable option not just for low-rise housing, but for larger, more complex structures across various building sectors.
