Emaar is going to build the first 3D printed home in Dubai
A few days ago, if you told us we could be living in 3D printed houses, we’d laugh in your face, but yet again, Dubai is making the impossible possible. The brilliant real estate developer Emaar Properties has announced the plan to build the first 3D printed home in Dubai.
The project will be built in partnership with an international printing 3D printing technology company along with a UAE contractor, and underlines Emaar’s commitment to adopt new and innovative construction methods.
Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties, said, “As the pioneer of integrated communities in Dubai and the trend-setter in the region’s property sector, our plans to embrace 3D printing of homes is an integral part of our digital-first and customer-first strategy,”
Emaar is aiming to set the region’s benchmark for the best practices in construction as 3D printing along with the sheer coolness brings along other several benefits including fast delivery of homes and flexibility in design. Along with that, this way of building homes is super environmental friendly with sustainable home construction techniques which significantly reduce construction waste and minimise noise pollution, so YAY SUSTAINABILITY!
Alabbar further said, “Through this, we are not only positioning ourselves as an early adopter of advanced technology but also creating long-term value for our customers as 3D printing brings numerous advantages, such as reduced cost of construction, more efficient use of materials and higher levels of sustainability.”
The first 3D printed house will be built in Arabian Ranches III which was launched last year which has a 4km long boulevard, sports facilities and a lazy river. Though you can register your interest in the project, the first house will not be available for purchase as it is only created as a reference point for investors.
With the 3D printing project at Arabian Ranches III, Emaar is aiming to create a great sustainable real estate landscape in the future where people can ‘design, download and print’ their houses.
This city never ceases to amaze us.
