As you already know, we are engaged in the 4th Industrial Revolution, and it’s hard to keep up with the many innovations in the construction industry. We know you can’t afford to fall behind on this—that is why this week, I give you a brief overview of robotics and how you can leverage automated modular methods to improve your projects’ building speed and help lower its cost of production.
Construction Robots = Building Faster
What is Automated Modular Construction?
The construction industry is dominated by numerous small and specialized sub-contractors who are typically not technologically advanced enough to embrace automation. The sector representing factory-built housing (the modular, prefab, panelized, precast, etc.) the exception. Since the products are built in factories, the principles of mass production and mass customization are the norm in manufacturing, going hand in hand, automation, integration, and optimization.
House of Design Robotics—Automating Factories of The Future.
House of Design is an ABB Robotics Integration company and robotics value provider. They recently worked with Autovol on a fully operational and multi-unit housing factory. The factory floor is approximately 400,000 square feet, with an adjoining office space of 30,000 square feet where multiple extremely high-quality living units are produced each day.
Here’s a great example of how robots are helping built faster and safer.
