The municipality of Dubai has issued its first printing construction licence for private use, allowing a villa to be extruded in one session in the city’s northern Al Awir 1 area.

The villa will be made entirely from locally sourced concrete and is due to be completed in October.

The project is part of the Dubai 3D Printing Strategy 2030, which aims to print a quarter of new buildings by 2030.

Mariam Al Muhairi, Dubai Municipality’s action chief executive of building regulation, said: “This project aims to encourage contractors, engineers, investors and real estate developers to adopt and use technology in their building operations.

“The municipality further offers support and facilities to monitor and control the use of this innovative technology in building and construction.”
