The process allows much more complex designs in concrete than traditional construction methods.
The research is being backed by Foster+Partners who believe the new concrete process could revolutionise building design and construtction.
Xavier De Kestelier, associate partner at Foster+Partners, said: “The research here at Loughborough University gives us tremendous opportunities.
“We are able to have a little peak into the future, to see what would construction will be like in the next five to ten years.”
The process relies on the extrusion of cement based mortar which is precisely formed via computer data.
Professor Simon Austin, co-investigator at Loughborough University said: “We have shown how additive manufacturing can be developed to create large structures, such as panels and walls, with precisely controlled voids within them.”
The team are currently working on producing concrete components up to 2m x 2.5m x 5m.
