Automated Construction: The Promise of Robotics

By Construction Tech Review | Monday, February 25, 2019

The construction industry is one of the most automated industries that feature automated manual labor as a primary source of productivity. With the advent of robotic technology, the process of the industry became productive and cheaper. Below are certain areas of construction that are being impacted by robotic technology.

Automated Technology: Robotics allow greater automation in processes. The aspects of construction including manufacturing, packing, and building are mostly being automated with innovation in robotics and machinery construction companies more utilizing technology. Robotic Technology is fully automating traditional construction activities like welding, material handling, packing, dispensing, and cutting, which allows precision and accuracy throughout the process and represents a significant financial and time savings.

Altered Workforce: Technologies will be slowly integrated, replacing specific tasks. With machines taking over certain aspects of the job allows companies to employ less staff for varieties of activities. The core skill set of construction workers will drastically look different from the increase in the automated process.

Lean Construction Practices: Lean construction is one of the essential movements in construction that aims to increase efficiency and productivity, often centered on the elimination of waste. Conventional construction practices produce environmentally harming waste and which significantly affects profitability. Robotic technology can help reduce the amount of waste created with its ability to ensure accuracy and precision.

Higher Quality: By removing human error and inconsistency automated machines can reap advantages like speed, efficiency, and repeatability to ensure better overall quality.

3D Printing: With 3D printing, it is possible to print complex, layered parts that can be used in the construction of buildings, bridges, and roads. Robotic machines can standardize the production of objects saving both time and money.

Demolition: It is one of the earliest use of robotics in construction. Speeding up demolition process can allow a substantial saving over time and money when considering the number of construction projects presently in place. Robotics can make the process of crushing concrete, breaking down structures and gathering all debris more efficient.

As companies look to automate more and more construction activities for efficiency and productivity, the construction robots will continue to have significant impacts on the industry.
