Dubai: Engineering Contracting Company LLC (ECC) is the main contractor of the largest 3D printed project in the world that has achieved the Guinness World Record in partnership with Dubai Municipality. Located in Al Warsan, the project will be utilized as an office spanning over 640 sq. m. with two levels, 9.5 meters in height making it the largest 3D printed project in the world. The vision for the project was to create an efficient development keeping in line with the new futuristic vision for Dubai – to become the leading hub of 3D printing technology by the year 2030. 

Kareem Farah, CEO of ECC, commented: “We are thrilled about this partnership with Dubai Municipality and for the project to have achieved the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest 3D printed development. Challenging projects are a cornerstone of ECC and what we are truly known for in the construction market. We pride ourselves on innovative, never-been-done projects and executing them to the best of our ability. The team working on the project have outdone themselves and we are exceptionally proud of each one of them.”

The development was printed using locally-sourced materials with one machine. ECC Group’s associated companies Abanos Interior Fit-out and Joinery, Prime Metal Industries (PMI) and Prime Ready Mix (PRM) were appointed as subcontractors for the supply and installation of wooden doors, glass, aluminium panels and manufacturing of special concrete respectively.

Ali Ahmed Mustafa, Project Manager, commented: “It’s a great honour to be a part of this historic and iconic project that has broken records – worldwide. We were able to attain this milestone due to the commitment, hard work and relentless perseverance of the entire team working on it along with the immense resourcing support from the head office.”

The construction of the project posed multiple challenges and underwent extensive research and ‘Trial and Error’ testing for structural integrity, harsh weather conditions, the topography of the land and required innovative solutions. In the future, construction cost can be reduced by over 50%, material waste by 60% and labour cost by 50%.
