QOROX: Pioneering the Future of Construction in New Zealand with 3D printed concrete building system
Founded in 2018, QOROX is New Zealand’s leading provider of 3D printed concrete structures and features for the construction sector. Headquartered in Hamilton, the company utilizes additive manufacturing to transform the way buildings and infrastructure are designed and constructed.
QOROX has developed an innovative robotic 3D printing system to produce free-form concrete structures layer by layer directly on site. Their printing robot can create walls, slabs, shells and custom features in almost any shape imaginable.
Key benefits compared to conventional building methods:
– 75% faster construction time
– 70% less material waste
– Greater design freedom without formwork constraints
– Higher precision and surface quality
– Lower transport needs and emissions
The printed concrete has passed extensive testing and is proven to meet New Zealand’s structural, fire and seismic standards. It is also waterproof and provides excellent thermal mass.
Range of Printed Products
QOROX offers both standard and customized printing services for:
– Load-bearing and partition walls, shells
– Cladding panels, feature walls
– Slabs, acoustic barriers
– Sculptures, landscaping elements like planters, benches, retaining walls
– Infrastructure products like manholes, culverts, swimming pools
Their printing robot allows efficient production of small to medium series tailored to each project.
Applications in Building Construction
QOROX brings the advantages of 3D printing to residential, commercial and infrastructure construction projects:
– Houses, apartments – faster build times, greater design freedom
– Office buildings, retail stores – distinctive concrete features
– Social, emergency and modular housing – cost-effective quality solution
– Bridges, noise barriers, drainage structures – optimized concrete shapes
Working closely with architects, builders and engineers, they provide value through innovative construction technology.
QOROX partners with CyBe Construction, a global pioneer in large-scale 3D concrete printing based in the Netherlands. CyBe has completed pioneering projects like Europe’s first printed houses and office buildings.
This technical expertise combined with extensive R&D investment has allowed QOROX to develop hardware, software, materials and applications specifically tailored to New Zealand’s construction industry.
Through their advanced 3D printing platform, QOROX is committed to transforming construction in New Zealand. Printed concrete structures provide designers, builders and owners new levels of flexibility, sustainability and cost efficiency. The company’s continual innovation will further expand the possibilities of digital construction.
