3D concrete print technology has advanced enormously in recent years and to embrace innovation and the vast development opportunities offered by technological innovations, BESIX 3D was set up as a division within BESIX Group that specializes in 3D concrete printing.
But, how did it all began?
It all started in 2017 when the idea was shortlisted by Unleash, BESIX’s internal innovation program. This was followed by various milestones, starting with market research and ending with a cooperation contract with a handful of important players: Ghent University, ResourceFull (start-up specialized in sustainability), SIKA (concrete admixtures specialist) and Witteveen+Bos (engineering company). Finally, the specialized team in 3DCP technology and project leader Jonas Vandeven opened a first 3D printing studio in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
