Your developments at Loughborough looks interesting , especially the
software. Anything to move wet trades into mass production sounds a good
thing to do.
There are obvious potential benefits in being able to print different forms
of concrete panels, e.g. for tilt up, complex shapes, customisation or
Just wondering, in IP terms, about the differences between your process and
shotcrete applied via teleoperated machine when your concrete printing
process is scaled to building size in 3D? Obviously the velocity at
placement is different. Do your patents overlap?
How do you manage the steel/textile fibre reinforcement? Do you deliver
steel/textile fiber with the mix?

Subject: Innovative Construction process: Concrete Printing
I am a research associate at Loughborough University in the UK, and I would
like to introduce and share our current research project 'Concrete
Printing'. The Concrete Printing Process is capable of producing building
components with a degree of customisation that has not yet been seen. It
could create a new era of architecture that is adapted to the environment
and fully integrated with engineering function. You can find clear ideas of
what this research is about in the below link.
Your comments about the technology is more than welcome.
