The Challenge

Constructing multi-story buildings requires significant manual labor and time. Come to think of it, construction is one of the only industries that yet remains to be automated. Current technologies only allow you to “3D print” single-floor structures with no ability to print floors slabs for multi-story buildings. Is it possible to automate printing multi-story buildings at a fraction of the cost and time?

WELCOME TO VPT

OUR SOLUTION

A Fresh Approach

With a unique, patent-pending technology, we have cracked automated multi-story construction to decrease costs by 50% at a rate of 4 meters per day. We call it vertical printing. We use automated, additive layering technology of simultaneously "print" vertical columns and floor slabs and then position and secure floors horizontally. On-site construction. Minimal manual labor.

 

 

UNPARALLELED TECHNOLOGY

From huts to skyscrapers

Vertical support columns and floor slabs are fabricated on-site while being in the vertical position using a conventional movable formwork and a printer that positions tensioning cables and porous concrete in layers for the whole height of the building  After tensioning and anchoring the cables, they are at mid-floor elevations. The floor slabs are then rotated into place and are secured.
