Dubai has set another world record, to add to its long tally of acheievements. Now, the Dubai Future Foundation has been recognised for setting a new Guinness World Record for opening the world’s first 3D-printed commercial building – which happens to be their very own Office of the Future.

The office was created with just one printer, which was able to print the entire structure, impressively measuring 20 feet high, 40 feet wide and 120 feet long. The components took 17 days to print, two days to install and three months to build including the landscape and interior design. It also required 50 percent less manpower than conventional construction, and produced 60 percent less waste – so that’s a win for the environmental impact too.

3D printing in construction is all the rage right now, with Emaar last year announcing plans for their first-ever 3D printed homes, set to become part of Arabian Ranches III. The company said that 3D printing is environment-friendly, with sustainable home construction techniques significantly lowering waste and noise pollution during wall construction.

It added that 3D printed homes will contribute to “lower cooling costs as customers can choose the thickness and type of insulation that goes into the walls; the thicker the insulation used, the lower the cooling costs”.

The long-term aim of 3D printing, according to Emaar, is to create a future where customers can design, download and even print their future homes.
What a world that would be.

Dubai has loads of world records, and here are some of the most notable records ever set in the emirate, and many are Burj Khalifa related.
