Engineering and Construction

+ Drone Laboratory

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is setting up a Laboratory for Drones in Dubai. The R&Drone laboratory building is constructed using 3D-printing technology. Witteveen+Bos designed and engineered the 3D-printed concrete. Despite the lack of design codes for 3D-printed concrete structures Witteveen+Bos was able to prove the structure will be safe and obtained all the required building permits. The R&Drone laboratory building is the first non-residential building in use printed on site using 3DCP.
