The first house on German soil has been built in North Rhine-Westphalia with one of COBOD’s 3D construction printers. The two-story single-family house offers around 160 square meters of living space. The building consists of triple-layer cavity walls filled with an insulation.
Using BOD2 in 3D construction printing brings several advantages for PERI like time saving, streamlining construction processes and thereby reducing costs. The skilled labor shortage is a problem all over the world that PERI also tries to encounter through COBOD’s 3D printing technology.
The state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany’s biggest state with more than 16 million inhabitants also supported the project with an additional 200,000€. This is one example of many, where COBOD’s technology is supported by governmental efforts. Further, the Beckum building has passed the very high standards of the German building code. A big achievement for COBOD and for PERI on this joint adventure of bringing 3D construction printing into the mainstream.
From a global perspective, this project has set new standards from a design and architecture standpoint. We are happy to have such an experienced partner like PERI as a minority shareholder.
