Fresh Concrete 2: Low carbon 3D printed concrete
|Wednesday 27 April 2022
|Natalie Wadley, Director, ChangeMaker3D
This second Fresh concrete event focused on innovative methods of construction using concrete. It will include 3D printed concrete and a new structural system, designed simply ‘deconstructed’ and re-used or re-configured.

Globally 3D Construction Printing is gaining momentum, demonstrating sustainability benefits underpinned by carbon reduction, less waste and enhanced safety. The technology is digitally driven by design software that converts design files into a 3D printing code, which enables the 3D robot to extrude quick drying mortar to structures at pace. Natalie will describe the processes, opportunities and benefits of this innovative method of construction using concrete, and some of ChangeMaker3D’s recent projects with infrastructure clients in the UK including HS2 and United Utilities.
Fresh Concrete, produced in partnership with The Building Centre, is intended to be a platform for knowledge sharing for all construction professionals, bringing a fresh approach and fresh thinking for concrete.
