World’s first 3D printed medical center in Saraburi

Siam Cement Group (SCG), the largest and oldest cement and building materials company in Thailand and Southeast Asia, has recently unveiled the successful completion of the first 2-story 3D printed building in ASEAN. What is more striking is the fact that the building is the first 3D printed medical facility worldwide.

The impressive and well-designed two-story medical center located in Saraburi, Thailand, was built with a state-of-the-art COBOD BOD2 3D concrete printer. This innovative project has a total floor area of 345 m2 over 2 floors and is also the largest 3D printed building in the ASEAN countries.

The building immediately stands out on the skyline with its undulating walls. This design solution is possible and easy to implement thanks to the 3D construction printer and the design freedom it allows. Thus, the first 3D printed medical center features all the benefits of the revolutionary building solution, specifically the absence of design, faster construction speed and fewer workers on site compared to conventional construction practices.

SCG now offers the market the opportunity to increase construction efficiency, reduce the environmental footprint by generating less waste at the construction site and improve design. As an official COBOD distributor in Thailand, SCG promotes the value of innovative technology, which offers a range of benefits over traditional construction methods. The building was specifically designed to withstand seismic loads and the use of 3D printing technology increased the speed of construction and reduced the amount of labor required compared to conventional construction methods.

COBOD is a pioneer in 3D construction printing and has led the construction of this medical center in Thailand. They already built some others such as the first 3D printed residential building in Germany or the first two-story 3D printed building in India. 3D printing makes it possible to build faster, save money and have more flexible designs, which ultimately improves patient care and wellbeing.
