  The University of Loughborough has been leading the way in establishing additive manufacturing in the construction sector for more than ten years now. The School of Civil and Building Engineering has won acclaim with its innovative process for 3D printing with concrete, and is working closely with industry leaders such as Skanska and the Manufacturing Technology Centre to establish this as a viable tool for a wide range of construction applications. RP Platform was fortunate enough to sit down with Dr Richard Buswell to discuss the cutting-edge research taking place at ...
