The renovation of building envelopes is gaining market potential from an economic and sustainability point of view.
aspects, is gaining increasing market potential and faces ever more drastic challenges due to the shortage of skilled workers. By 2030, the market potential of building envelope refurbishment is estimated at 400 billion euros with a demand for over 300,000 employees. This corresponds to an increase of more than 50 percent of the current number of employees, which can hardly be met under normal circumstances.
The Centre Construction Robotics has set itself the goal of automating the renovation of building envelopes through construction robotics and thus counteracting the shortage of skilled workers. With the research project “Enable Renovation 4.0”, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia is supporting this project with the funding programme “Digitisation of the Construction Industry and Innovative Construction”. Over a period of two years, the project team is working on the further development of an assistance system for the automated assembly and handling of façade panels for building renovation, in order to make a contribution to the construction site of the future. The project is supported and promoted by the members of the Center Construction Robotics.
