Technology

In many fields the help of machines and robotics is now widely used. Even in construction, in recent years enormous progress has been made in the research and creation of tools capable of facilitating the work of the human hand capable of improving execution times and the quality of work.
In a building construction, the final result is linked to the mere ability of the workers who carry it out.
After years of unfinished works, poor execution, delays, never respected budgets and above all, unsatisfied customers until robotization finally enters construction and is now a reality.

One of the new tools available to manufacturers are 3D printers.

Thanks to its use we could start talking about a new standardization in the construction process, which could completely change the concept of house building. The standardization in the construction of houses could revive the construction sector with houses executed in series with a very attractive design as it has been done in the past with other sectors.
The new process with contour crafting is able to construct the external and internal walls as a single unit, contrary to previous use of 3D printers when only parts to be assembled were created.

COBOD was founded in 2017 after 3 years of research in state-of-the-art construction printing.
COBOD built the first fully compliant 3D printed house in Europe in 2017.
COBOD sold its first 3D construction printer in 2019 and since then has seen its sales increase exponentially. Such has been the scale of its growth, it now has >65 employees at its Copenhagen headquarters. Personnel are from a diverse range of backgrounds and skill-sets including engineering, industrial design, architecture, software and business development.

COBOD was joined by The PERI Group (one of the world’s leading companies in the field of formwork and scaffolding) CEMEX, (world leader in the construction materials sector), GE Renewable Energy, acquiring a stake of the Danish 3D concrete printing specialist, and last but not least company Holcim ( driving circular construction world leader in recycling).
