The American University of Sharjah (AUS) and GCC Ginco LLc entered a collaboration with MEET to become a leading local company in 3D concrete printing. The role of CyBe was described as technology provided to support within construction, as well as giving training to trainees and conduct research at the university.
To summarize, we were asked to function as technology and education partner, in order to make Sharjah a preferred destination for future architecture, as well as changing construction globally.
Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park
The first 3D Printed house in the Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park (SRTI Park) was build by the third quarter of 2019. It is a result of a collaboration between three parties; government, private, and academia. American University of Sharjah (AUS) supported in research and talent. The university is working on the development of this technology and training students through conducting applied scientific research by students, faculty members and a number of researchers from specialized companies, including MEET, which focuses on the constructions of 3D Printed structures. A group of students from the Faculty of Engineering at AUS will got hands-on training on this technique, executed by CyBe Construction. State-of-the-art technology and design were used, but on the other hand it was important to stay close to the UAE roots.
