The First Ever 3D Printed Medical Center Completed in Thailand with Danish Technology

Jun 2023

Siam Cement Group (SCG), the largest and the oldest cement and building material company in Thailand and Southeast Asia, has recently revealed the successful completion of the first 2-story 3D printed building in ASEAN. Importantly, the building is the first 3D printed medical center in the whole world.

The two-story medical center located in Saraburi, Thailand, was constructed using a COBOD BOD2 3D concrete printer from COBOD International, a 3D construction printing technology from Denmark. This project boasts a total floor area of 345 m2 over 2 floors.

COBOD commenced a partnership with SCG in 2022 for introducing its technology to the Thai market. SCG now offers the market the chance to increase construction efficiency, reduce the environmental footprint by generating less waste on the construction site, while improving the design.

As an official distributor of COBOD in Thailand, SCG promotes the value of the innovative technology, which offers a range of benefits over traditional construction methods. The building was specifically designed to support seismic loads, and the use of 3D printing technology increased construction speed and reduced the amount of labor required compared to conventional building methods.

In other countries, 3D construction printing is primarily used for one story residential housing, but as the new building by SCG shows, COBOD’s technology can also be applied in other areas.
