The world’s first office building produced by a 3D printer has just opened in Dubai. The 250 square metre “Office of the Future” was built using a 3D printer measuring 20 feet high, 120 feet long and 40 feet wide and is erected near the Emirates Towers in Dubai.
The building technology with access control and surveillance systems was provided by Siemens and is integrated into a central building management platform. The technology ensures low operating costs and reduced energy consumption.
“We are proud to be participating in this pioneering project and supporting Dubai’s Smart City strategy by providing state-of-the-art technology for intelligent, digitalised building automation and controls,” said Matthias Rebellius, CEO of the Siemens Building Technologies Division.
The key components of the “Office of the Future” are integrated with the help of Siemens’ Desigo CC management platform. The platform enables the control and optimisation of the building’s technical infrastructure, surveillance, air conditioning and access control systems from a central location. A customised platform displays the status of the various systems in real time, enabling operators to accurately monitor and control the building’s performance.
The Desigo CC building management platform is also able to accommodate a wider range of building systems including heating, ventilation and air conditioning, power, lighting and shading, and components can be added when requirements change.
