Bangalore To Have India’s First 3D-Printed Post Office

Bangalore is going to have India’s first 3D-printed Post Office and the entire construction will be completed within one month. Located in Cambridge Layout in the Halasuru area, the 3D-printed building will be a three-storied facility. Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry has given clearance for the construction, which will be carried out by L&T.
L&T, which is the only company currently in India utilising 3D printing technology for the construction, has already submitted the building designs to the postal department. As per the officials, the construction will be completed within one month. Experts estimate that the printing construction will reduce project cost to one-fourth of the amount spent on a traditional model and will significantly bring down the construction time too.
The project is being carried out in collaboration with IIT Madras. Earlier, India’s first 3D-printed house was built within the IIT-Madras campus, which has a built-up area of 600 square feet.
3D printing for construction is a machine-run method for erecting three-dimensional structures at all realizable scales. A huge 3D printer will be used which works as per a computerized three-dimensional design file. A specialized type of concrete is designed for the purpose and construction will take place layer by layer.
