ConTech Series: How 3D Printing Is Changing Construction

Monday, 15th March 2021 1145hrs – 1330hrs

Automated construction has lots of promise: better quality, faster delivery and lower cost. But realising this potential is very slow. 3D printing is one automated process that has much to offer construction. Its flexibility fits well with the bespoke nature of construction and the industry has dabbled with the technology for producing one-off components – and even whole buildings – but the technology is still some way from wholesale adoption.

In this webinar we will explore why 3D Printing still remains on the fringes of the construction industry. Is it a red herring; a non-starter in an industry that has no need of its fanciful intricacies and no time for its demanding complexities? Or has the construction sector been unable to clearly identify its potential value?

This webinar is part of a new series on the future of the construction industry which are taking place over the coming months, and will explore the next big trends, innovations and challenges the industry needs to prepare for.

We will gather major industry influencers and free thinkers to discuss the challenges and opportunities that will be present across the built environment in the years to come.

Speakers for this event include:

Paul Mullett,
Group Engineering and Technology Director
Anielle Guedes,
Senior Consultant
Edouard Baaklini,
Chief Executive Officer
Myriam Garouachi,
Architect Designer
