3D Concrete Printing for street furniture

Sharjah tech park SRTI explores extending 3D Concrete Printing concept to street furniture

The 3D concrete printing concept for street furniture is being explored across the world.The impact of 3D printing technology on the manufacturing industry has been deepening.The Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park (SRTP), home to the region’s first 3D printed house, is looking into new applications for this technology, including street furniture.

Furniture manufacturing companies have an increasingly strong demand for the improvement of furniture manufacturing process and furniture modelling structure In addition, the intelligent upgrading of furniture products in the context of the development of intelligent manufacturing is also a gradually improved field in the furniture manufacturing industry. In recent years, the development of intelligent furniture has accelerated significantly.

In this situation of rapid changes in the furniture manufacturing industry, the rapid prototyping characteristics of 3D printing technology and the superiority of solving complex technological processes have brought it into constant contact with the furniture manufacturing industry, and in the process of furniture production, technology plays an important role in the development of the industry.

In an effort to make aware of the latest construction and digital fabrication technologies, Middle East Engineering Technologies (MEET) and SRTIP hosted a workshop titled “Innovating Street Furniture with 3D Concrete Printing” at the 3D Printed House at SRTI Park.The 3D Printed House at SRTI Park was built with cutting-edge technology, incorporating the heritage of the UAE, and symbolizing Sharjah’s vision to be a hub for 3D printing technology.

Commenting on SRTI’s plans for pushing 3D printing innovations, Mr. Hussain Al Mahmoudi, CEO of SRTIP, said: “3D printing is a technology whose time has come. We believe 3D printing is set to revolutionize the construction industry.  The construction of the first house of architectural heritage with the three-dimensional (3D) printing techniques at the Park is a testimony to our mission to boost the usage of 3D printing. We are delighted to host this workshop which helped throw new light on the application of the emerging technology.”

Haidar Alhaidary, Projects Executive at MEET, presented various insights into the new technology, and explained unique features of the 3D printed villa, and the possibilities for innovating concrete street furniture.

A follow-up discussion with the attending professors, young engineers, and students explored public opinion on the technology and the various pathways it is expected to take as it enters into universities’ future engineering programs.

By introducing 3D Printing, SRTI Park is creating a vibrant and supportive environment for experiments and research in the field of future building technologies and fourth generation technologies. The technology is considered to be one of the most innovative ways to build an integrated residential unit through the use of digital machineries.
