3D printed sheds to boost marine biodiversity

New Zealand project developer AK Banuku uses 3D concrete printing as a manufacturing technology for artificial sheds. These improve marine biodiversity. The printing is done with 3D concrete printers from Dutch Cyp Construction. The use of 3D printing for these modules is superior to conventional construction in many aspects.

When printed barnacles and limpets are placed in water, they create a rock pool effect. It creates a habitat for many marine animals, leading to biodiversity. However, the chosen construction method, 3D concrete printing, brought more unique advantages.


“Usually these modules are not customized; They have a fixed shape,” says Fiona Knox. Preferred Place Director Bee AK Banugu. “However, we needed them in a unique size and shape.” That’s why the project developer has sought cooperation with QOROX’s 3D printing experts. 3D concrete printing not only offers more design freedom. This material is also an excellent habitat for plants, resulting in a source of food and protection for marine animals. Average printing time per element is about five minutes. 3D concrete printing offers several advantages for this application.

Cype 3D Concrete Printers

Qorox introduced 3D concrete printing in New Zealand six years ago. Meanwhile, the first commercial building was 3D printed and Qorox was the first to create the largest 3D printed building in the Southern Hemisphere. They have previously offered another type of artificial coral, which functions like barnacles. Qorox is a reseller of Dutch Sibe Construction’s technology in New Zealand and Australia. The Dutch manufacturer celebrates June 27 10 year anniversary celebration.
