Florida-based contractor Printed Farms has printed a luxury horse barn in Wellington, Florida, creating what Danish printer-maker Cobod says is the biggest 3D printed building in the world.

The 940-sq-m building is designed to endure hurricanes. An air gap in the wall structure provides natural cooling.

The build process involved five moves of the printer and gantry.

The company is privately owned by General Electric, Cemex, Holcim, and Peri as key shareholders.

Other partners include Dar Al Arkan (Saudi Arabia), L&T Construction (India), JGC (Japan), Siam Cement (Thailand) and Orascom (Egypt).
