The first buildings of humankind were erected about 11,000 years ago – but since those rudimentary temple structures in Turkey, we imagine that one or two things have changed in the construction industry – an industry that is like so many others dependent on environmental factors and of course must keep up with current technology developments.
One technology that might be of use to the industry is our Additive Manufacturing: it is already in use and showing potential in minimizing the use of materials and maximizing the freedom of design while at the same time lowering the emissions of CO². Use Cases also include the printing of customised formwork at the actual construction site – saving both time and money.
But we still have questions:
- How can Additive Manufacturing improve this industry?
- How is 3D Printing already used in Construction?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of AM in Construction?
- What needs to be done to establish AM in Construction?
Together with architects, engineering firms, builders, material suppliers and a multitude of other trades, the construction industry is structured differently and more complex than large parts of the rest of the additive industry – which is why we are bringing together the various players to shed light on the advantages and opportunities of the cooperation of AM and construction.
We are hosting the first ever MGA “Construction” Workshop on June 28, 2023 at 11am in Berlin.
Hosted by Stefanie Brickwede, MGA & Deutsche Bahn, and opened by Dr Karsten Heuser, Siemens, we will hear keynotes from Dr. Fabian Meyer-Brötz, PERI 3D, Prof. Dr. Inka Mai, TU Berlin, Dr. Ksenija Vasilić, DBV, and François Perrot, 14Trees.
If you would like to join our Workshop, please contact Sven Fritzsche to learn more.
When: June 28, 11am – 4pm
Where: MGA Office, Berlin
What: Discussions, Keynotes, Lunch & Networking
