Three-story building built with the help of 3D printing technology

Indian company MiCoB, specializing in 3D printing of concrete, has completed a three-story building in Visakhapatnam, India. The building, which occupies an area of 600 square meters, was constructed for the Military Engineer Services, Garrison Engineer Naval Depot in Visakhapatnam. The building’s 11.6-meter-high facade depicts boats sailing on an undulating sea, a symbol of the Indian Navy’s core values of duty, honor and courage.

The building was inaugurated on July 4, 2023, and is the tallest building to date to use 3D concrete printing technology. Shashank Shekhar, CEO of MiCoB, emphasized the potential of 3D printing to transform the construction industry and expressed confidence in the future possibilities of the technology.

The project successfully combined innovative design, traditional construction practices and 3D printing technology, resulting in the construction of the tallest hybrid structure to date using 3D concrete printing technology. The construction work was carried out by Mahamaruti Constructions, a Visakhapatnam-based company, while the design came from building design firm IDDC.

BVSS Raju (Chiranjeevi), managing director of Mahamaruti Constructions, expressed satisfaction with the completion of the project and praised the collaboration with MiCoB. He is optimistic about future projects in collaboration with MiCoB.

MiCoB, headquartered in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, and backed by 3Lines Venture Capital, specializes in rapid and modular construction of various applications, including defense structures, civil building construction, and architectural and infrastructure segments.
