Driving innovation for the construction sector

CEO of Lafarge GCC tells MEED that it is time for the construction sector to embrace new technologies 

Technologies such as 3D printing could eventually help with the management of time and cost, says CEO of Lafarge GCC Ahmad Heshmat.

Although contractors and consultants welcome the use of 3D printing, many have warned that it may be too soon to claim the technology can be used for structures.

Earlier this year, Dubai set a target that stipulates 25 per cent of all buildings should be built using 3D printing by 2030.
