Applications in Construction

  1. 1. Applications in Construction Wali Memon 1 Wali Memon
  2. 2. Why automate construction? Labor efficiency is alarmingly low Skilled workforce is vanishing Work quality is low Control of the construction site is insufficient and difficult Accident rate at construction sites is high (> 400,000 / year in US) Waste and trims are high (3 To 7 tons per average home; 40% of all materials used worldwide are for construction) Low income housing and emergency shelters are critical Construction is the largest sector of almost all economies All other products are fabricated automatically – construction is still largely a manual task2 Wali Memon
