Worker’s Fall From Scaffold Lands Him in Hospital

There has been a development in 3D printing in construction which could revolutionize the industry, or least where bridge design is concerned.

Researchers have created the first 3D printed bridge in a park in Madrid.

The bridge, made from micro-refined concrete stands at 12 metres long and 1.75 metres wide.

The architectural design of the bridge was in the hands of The Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) and a team led by Ms Areti Markopoulou.

The bridge is an important architectural development and is expected to open up more opportunities for using 3D printing in civil engineering.

As Ms Markopoulou highlighted, prefabrication minimises costs and is a more sustainable option, making this development a triumph for the future of bridge construction.
