Fundermax joins the construction site of the future

The construction site of the future gets a new partner

Fundermax is one of the leading suppliers of wood-based materials and decorative laminates in Europe. Whether furniture, facades, or interior fittings: Fundermax produces, develops, and markets innovative wood-based materials and compact laminates.

“With Fundermax, we were able to win over one of the most innovative companies for the production and processing of wood-based materials in Europe. The company is strongly committed to digitalization and automation and thus makes an important contribution to greater efficiency and sustainability in construction,” comments Prof. Dr. Sigrid Brell-Cokcan on the new member.

In specific terms, the Center Construction Robotics (CCR) is working together with Fundermax in the Enable Sanierung 4.0 research project on the further development of an assistance system for the automated assembly and handling of facade panels for building renovation. Fundermax GmbH provides the facade system as well as its expertise and experience to support the further development of the assistance system.

On Campus West at RWTH Aachen University, the Center Construction Robotics builds Europe’s first reference construction site together with a European industry consortium. It serves as a living lab to test new construction processes, construction products, networked machines, the use of robots, software solutions as well as teaching, working and communication concepts under real construction site conditions.

“With the ReferenceConstructionSite, we are encountering a unique initiative across Europe that fits perfectly with our philosophy:  Courage to innovate, creativity and innovative spirit are just as important to us as sustainability and customer-centric, efficient processes. We are looking forward to the cooperation and exchange”, says Gernot Schöbitz, Managing Director Fundermax, about joining the Center Construction Robotics.

With Fundermax, the industry consortium of the Center Construction Robotics now comprises 14 partner companies.
