PERI 3D Construction starts Europe’s first 3D printed public building
Leading the charge for using innovative building technology in the form of 3D construction printers, PERI 3D Construction is set to create Europe's first-ever 3D printed football club facility and public building. This initiative, located in Nordkirchen, Germany, exemplifies the transformative shift towards 3D construction printing in various sectors beyond residential construction.
Utilizing the largest printer configuration to date by PERI 3D Construction, a COBOD BOD2 model measuring 25 meters (83 feet) long, 15 meters (50 feet) wide, and 10 meters (33 feet) high, the future SC Capelle football clubhouse will boast a usable floor space of approximately 330 m˛ (3.550 SF). The estimated completion time using 3D printing technology is projected to be only approximately 140 hours, highlighting the technology's potential for rapid, efficient, and sustainable construction.
The unique design for the building is the creative work of Steinhoff Architekten, an innovative architectural firm known for embracing forward-thinking construction methods. The clubhouse will be used by SC Capelle playing in the third division in Germany.
This ground-breaking project sets the stage for the continued evolution of construction methodologies, proving that 3D construction printing is a viable option not just for low-rise housing, but for larger, more complex structures across various building sectors.
Founded in 1969, PERI is the world's leading manufacturer and supplier of formwork and scaffolding systems. In 2018 PERI Group acquired a minority shareholder in COBOD. Since then, both companies have worked closely together and pushed the boundaries of 3D construction printing. In 2020, using a COBOD BOD2, PERI released the first 3D-printed residential building in Germany and the biggest printed apartment building in Europe.
