The research focuses on investigating the integration of MEP integration systems (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) within 3D printed Earth walls. Through a comprehensive exploration of wall discontinuities and cavity design, we aim to understand how these design elements can be combined to achieve a seamless integration of MEP systems throughout both the design and construction phases

How can we achieve seamless integration of MEP systems within 3D Printed Earth walls through the strategic use of wall cavities during the design & construction phases?


We have started our research by exploring the current state of the art in MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) integration within 3D printing, with a specific focus on the concrete 3D printing industry. Our objective is to gain insights into the design strategies and best practices to achieve a seamless integration of MEP systems.
