It is a two story football clubhouse for SC Capelle measuring 330 sqm and it will be printed in 140 hours.

With a new project that showcases 3D construction printing’s potential beyond low-rise residential housing, utilizing COBOD‘s BOD2 printer, PERI started working on Europe’s first 3D printed public building: a football clubhouse. The 330 sqm (3.550 sq ft) structure of the SC Capelle football clubhouse has 2 floors and will be printed in 140 hours.

PERI will use a BOD2 3D construction printer from COBOD measuring 25 m (83 feet) in length, 15 m (50 feet) in width and 10 m (33 feet) in height, the largest printer configuration to date. This initiative, taking place in Nordkirchen, Germany, exemplifies the transformative shift towards 3D construction printing in various sectors beyond residential construction.

Dr. Fabian Meyer-Brötz, Managing Director of PERI 3D Construction, stated: “In the face of significant challenges such as a skilled worker shortage and stagnating productivity in construction, 3D construction printing offers an urgently needed solution to build faster, cheaper, and with less material usage.”

The unique design for the building is the creative work of Steinhoff Architekten, an innovative architectural firm known for embracing forward-thinking construction methods. The clubhouse will be used by SC Capelle playing in the third division in Germany.

Echoing PERI’s statement, Henrik Lund-Nielsen, Founder and General Manager of COBOD International, shared his enthusiasm: “This new project by PERI is a great example of how our printers can be used for more than just low-rise housing. The new building will be the first-ever 3D printed football clubhouse and also the first public building that has ever been 3D printed. On top of the recently finished printing of the world’s so far largest 3D printed building, a luxury horse staple in Florida of almost 1.000 m2 (10.100 SF), we are starting to see numerous examples of 3D printed non-residential buildings.”
