CyBe Construction was asked by the Saudi Arabia Ministry of Housing to design, engineer, and build an affordable 80-square-meter house to encourage new and efficient building techniques in Saudi Arabia.
The project was an answer to the ambitious goal set by Saudi Arabia to build 1.5 million houses using innovative technologies such as 3D concrete printing and fast-brick robotics before 2030.
Printing on site in the Saudi desert
We built an 80-square-meter single-bedroom house onsite in the Saudi Arabian desert. The house consisted of 27 walls and 21 parapets — all printed within one week. During the building process, we also placed windows, doors, and electrical sockets.
The house was intended to be the first of many structures built using technologies such as 3D concrete printing. In addition to 3D printing the house, CyBe educated local print operators to ensure the safe operation of the 3D concrete printer in the next phase of this large project.
