When Hamilton builders Johnny Gordon and Nick Lane visited a 3D concrete printing factory they were mesmerized, and decided to adopt the technology for their latest project.

Their company, Iconic Construction, was working on a childcare centre, and the plans were designed, consented, and ready to go.

But a chance meeting with Wafaey Swelim, from Qorox, and a visit to his factory, led them to switch their plans from timber texture precast panels to 3D concrete printed ones.
