WinSun
Global leading the 3D printing revolution in the construction industry
By Morgan Brady

BT 201810 Investment 02盈创
全球建筑业3D打印革命领导者

如今中国并不仅仅是一个制造业强国,其大型科技公司在全球范围内也是备受瞩目。盈创是最近非常值得关注的新兴公司,他是建筑领域的先驱,并将3D打印提升到了新的水平,预计在近几年会呈现惊人增长。

公司的全称是盈创建筑技术(上海)有限公司,成立于2003年7月。它最初是一家先进的建筑材料供应商。该公司专注于复杂的室内装饰(例如歌剧院)和非标准的外部结构。该公司目前拥有151项专利,被认为是“一带一路”政策的重点企业,影响着中国的房地产行业。荣获中国房地产诚信企业,上海优秀联盟企业,中国房地产开发企业和首选供应商企业等殊荣。 500强商业房地产项目。在短时间内,公司成功地将建筑业转变得更具生产力。

新技术辅助建筑先驱

该公司是世界上第一家实现建筑3D打印的高科技公司。事实上,它是首家建筑业内创新企业。它不仅打破了行业的陈旧规则,改造可再生再生建筑材料,它还将工业尾矿转化为3D打印所需的油墨和绝缘材料,既能环保又可以降低成本。

不止3D打印技术,盈创还开发了一系列的新材料和技术,例如GRG(特种玻璃纤维增强石膏板),SRC(特种玻璃纤维增强水泥),疯狂魔石,FRP(特种玻璃)纤维复合材料),建筑印刷油墨和3D打印体系结构。

从传统建筑业的转化

盈创认为在整个建筑历史中,并没有发生任何革命性的变化,非常依赖于人工。在城市快速发展的节奏中,这无疑会拉低生产率。传统的施工方法也会导致材料浪费,噪音以及灰尘。所以显然3D打印是能解决所有问题的灵丹妙药。如今,使用3D打印建造标准房屋的成本仅为30,000美元。通过在整个建筑进程开始前在工厂中预先打印墙壁等等材料的方法,能够大幅节约成本。材料成本的节省在30%到60%之间。施工速度每天达到一层。一栋1,100平方米的两层豪宅需要三天时间完成(一天印刷,两天组装),并且只需要3位工人操作。

盈创工艺结构环保,打造了可循环的生态系统。产生极少的废物和灰尘。

盈创项目

该公司最有名的一个项目就是3D打印办公室。该建筑首先在苏州打印,然后切成较小的部分以装入集装箱,最后在迪拜组装,用于迪拜未来基金会。该项目是与工程公司Gensler合作完成的。

直至今日,该公司参与了许多不同的项目,并为建设业的进步做出了巨大贡献。它在迪拜建造了大量房屋,并一直在与沙特阿拉伯和埃及谈判建造经济适用房(盈创最近签署了一项价值14.5亿美元的协议,在沙特阿拉伯打印建造150万套经济适用房)。

由于3D打印能够更有效地实现设计师的创意,公司还推出了3D打印云平台,以便建筑行业的专业人士可以协作和开发创意项目。

一个庞大的行业

盈创身处在一个非常具有吸引力的行业。事实上,盈创可以被视作这个行业发展的关键公司。由于建筑行业需要新的,可持续的,环保的和智能的住房解决方案,3D打印建筑行业预计将在2018年至2023年之间显示超过200%的复合年增长率。

新的发展浪潮似乎正在袭来,盈创将会继续成为行业领头羊。此技术将有希望帮助像叙利亚等等遭到重创的国家用最少的成本和人力重建家园。相信3D 建筑打印技术的潜力将不断被挖掘!

BT 201810 Investment 01China has become more than a manufacturing powerhouse. Its large tech companies are proving to be important players on a global scale. One burgeoning company that deserves attention is WinSun global, a pioneer in computer aided construction, for taking 3D printing to a new level, and disrupting the construction industry. It is among the top companies in a sector that is expected to grow exponentially over the upcoming years.
 

The company’s full name is Yingchuang Building Technique (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. It was founded in July 2003 and started off as an advanced building materials supplier. The company was specialized in complex interior decor (for opera houses, for example) and non-standard exterior structures. Currently it has 151 patents and is considered as a key enterprise of “one belt one road” policy. It is also a brand enterprise impacting Chinese real estate, China real estate integrity enterprise, Shanghai’s excellent alliance enterprise, China real estate development enterprise and preferred supplier enterprise of top 500 business real estate projects. Within a short period of time, the company has managed to move the construction industry into a state wherein it is more productive and ecological.

BT 201810 Investment 03A Pioneer in Technology-Aided Construction

This company is the first high tech company in the world to achieve 3D printing of buildings. In fact, it is the first to be regarded as high tech in the industry. It has gone beyond disrupting the construction industry to transforming the renewable recycled building materials. It also transforms industrial tailings into ink and insulation materials needed for 3D printing. The result is remarkable cost reduction realized by prudent waste management.
 

The company’s contributions go beyond mere 3d printing and including developing a series of new materials that use 3D printing technology, such as GRG (Special glass fiber reinforced gypsum board) , SRC ( Special glass fiber reinforced cement), Crazy Magic Stone, FRP ( Special glass fiber composite material), construction printing ink and 3D printing architecture.
 

A Move from Traditional Construction

WinSun Global contends that construction has seen little to no changes throughout history. It remains heavily dependent on workers to add the layers. This approach keeps productivity low, as it relies on workers’ productivity, at a time of rapid urbanization which requires fast and efficient building. Traditional construction approach also leads to high waste, noise, and dust. The answer is sophisticated 3d printing.
 

This move to 3d printing is undoubtedly viable and feasible. It enables time and cost reduction, increase in quality and improvement in environmental standards. Today building a standard house using 3d printing costs as little as $30,000.
 

Cost savings can be achieved by printing the walls beforehand in a factory and then assembling the building on site. Savings in the costs of materials vary between 30 and 60% as compared to the traditional method. The speed of construction reaches one story per day. A two story mansion of 1,100 sqm took three days to be constructed (one day of printing, and two days of assembly), with the help of 3 workers only.
 

WinSun has perfected its processes so that construction is environmentally friendly, following the closed loop concept. It produces minimal waste and no dust.

BT 201810 Investment 04WunSin Projects

One of the famous projects by the company was the first 3d printed office. The building was first printed in Suzhou, then cut into smaller parts to fit in shipping containers, and then assembled in Dubai, for the Dubai Future Foundation. This project was done in partnership with the engineering firm Gensler. WinSun has also provided the 3d printed “smart palms” which provide charging stations and decentralized Wi-Fi, in addition to shades, located in Dubai.
 

Until today, the company has participated in so many different projects and has contributed immensely to the advancement of construction sector. It has built a large number of houses in Dubai, and has been negotiating the construction of affordable homes with Saudi Arabia and Egypt (WinSun recently signed a $1.45bn deal to print 1.5 million affordable homes in Saudi Arabia). The ideal contract for the company is turnkey since it has the capability to build the exterior structure and the interior decoration as it can also print furniture.
 

And since 3d printing enables the realization of the creative imagination of designers much more efficiently, the company has also introduced its 3d printing cloud platform to allow professionals from the construction industry to collaborate and develop creative projects.
 

A Massive Industry

WinSun is working in a very attractive industry. In fact, it can be regarded as being the key company that has helped develop this industry. With its high technology, the 3d print construction industry is expected to show over 200% compounded annual growth rate between 2018 and 2023, driven by the need for new, sustainable, eco-friendly, and smart housing solutions.
 

This industry seems to be beginning a new growth wave, and WinSun is the key player. The technology is promising for war-torn regions like Syria to initiate full scale reconstruction at minimum time and cost. And globally, the opportunities are immense.
