Top Saudi real estate developer Dar Al Arkan partnered with COBOD in 2021 and announced their plans to use 3D Construction Printing (3DCP) technology for its projects in the Saudi Kingdom. Dar Al Arkan aims to complete its first house using the BOD2 printer in the Shams Ar Riyadh project by the fourth quarter of 2021.
COBOD’s technology will be applied to significantly cut construction time, reduce manual work labor, decrease wasted on the construction site, and ultimately, ensure lower costs and affordability for the customers.
“A combination of reduced waste of construction materials, less need for repair or rework, and low on-site LTI incidents will enable highly cost-efficient project management than traditional construction” Dar Al Arkan stated in a press statement.
Ziad El Chaar, Vice Chairman of Dar Al Arkan Properties, said the introduction of 3D construction printing would enable the company to focus on greater flexibility of design, strengthen productivity, and achieve higher cost efficiency.
Henrik Lund-Nielsen, Founder & General Manager, COBOD said Saudi Arabia represents the largest potential market in the Middle East for the company’s disruptive 3D construction technology.
“We are very pleased with the fact that such an important and influential company as Dar Al Arkan have chosen to partner with us. We look forward to working with them and to assist them with assuring the success of the 3DCP technology in the Kingdom,” Henrik Lund-Nielsen said.
