Throughout my career, I have always enjoyed unique and challenging projects. My 17 years of experience in the construction sector for a major general contractor based in Athens, Greece, were no exception. My role involved exploring and enabling the adoption of innovative construction solutions that most notably culminated with a 3D-printed house project in Saudi Arabia in 2018. 

Additive construction is something I take to heart. It is the main reason I took it upon myself to create a global committee to set standards for the sector. Nothing in construction happens without standards. They will support adoption of 3D printing as a tool in construction and ensure the delivery of high-quality and safe structures.

The committee I convened officially became JG 80 under ISO/TC 261—ASTM F42 in March 2021. We are working toward publishing the standard by the end of 2022. This is notable because the process can take three to five years.

My involvement with additive construction standards evolved in mid-2021 with my appointment as vice chair to the ASTM F42.07.07 subcommittee. Several work items were recently registered as WK74302, WK77614, WK78110, and WK81114.

I am excited to be part of the esteemed Wohlers Associates’ team. I look forward to engaging in more challenging projects that advance the construction sector, specifically as it relates to additive manufacturing and 3D printing.
