The PERI Group, one of the world’s leading companies in the field of formwork and scaffolding for the construction industry, acquires a stake in the Danish 3D concrete printing specialist COBOD International A/S based in Copenhagen.
COBOD International A/S is a newly established sister company of the Danish 3D Printhuset A/S, where 3D Printhuset has bundled its 3D printing solutions for the construction industry. Developments in the field of concrete printing began in 2015. In 2017, the technological breakthrough was achieved: In Copenhagen the so-called “BOD” (“Building on Demand”) was printed with a 3D concrete printer from COBOD. This office building is the first 3D printed building in Europe.
Currently, COBOD is one of the world’s leading companies with a wide range of 3D printers for residential construction. In the first EU-wide tender procedure for 3D printers for housing construction, COBOD was ahead of the field with its “BOD2” model. Several international tenders are currently underway for concrete printing projects in Europe, Asia, in particular the Middle East and North and South America.
