Construction Robots Accelerate!Over 1,500 projects in Beijing to build smart construction sites
Recently, Beijing Construction Engineering Safety Quality and Smart Management Benchmarking Site Observation and Learning Activities were launched. The first observation activity was held at the China Petroleum Exploration and Development Engineering Technology Research and Development Center Project of the Beijing Benchmarking Site. The project not only applied BIM technology, real-time dynamic measurement technology, etc.DigitizingConstruction means, 7 kinds of buildings are also appliedrobotImprove construction efficiency.
Construction Robots are widely used in the project, and the coverage rate of putty coating robots reaches 90%.Spraying robotThe coverage rate is 95%, and the coverage rate of ground leveling robots is 95%, showing people what smart construction looks like.
The efficiency of construction robots is also far higher than that of manual labor. The person in charge of the site introduced an indoor spraying robot whose work efficiency is four times that of manual labor. It is completed, and it can spray 25 square meters of walls in about 20 minutes, and it is more uniform than manual spraying.
Wei Jixiang, chief engineer of the Municipal Housing and Urban-Rural Development Commission and director of the Municipal Supervision Station, said that Beijing’s construction project safety quality and smart management benchmark site observation and learning activities have been held for 3 years. In recent years, the city’s safety and quality management level has improved to a certain extent , The construction of smart construction sites has made great progress. He said that as of the first quarter of this year, more than 1,500 projects in the city have created smart construction sites, an increase of 952 from 2021, accounting for 47% of the city’s construction projects.
The market for construction robots is vast
The construction industry is a labor-intensive industry, and labor costs have a great impact on the operating costs of construction companies. With the aging of the population, the safety of high-altitude operations in construction construction has become increasingly prominent. According to statistics from the Bureau of Housing and Urban-r There were 734 engineering production safety accidents, of which 383 were high-altitude fall accidents, accounting for 52% of the total number of accidents, and the labor cost of the construction industry was further raised.
Under the trend of intelligence, it has become a trend to replace manual operations with robot automation. Robots are gradually being deployed on construction sites around the world. Their applications range from automated bricklaying,3D printingTaken to site surveys, these robots have proven their ability to perform tasks faster and more accurately than human workers.
The market opportunity for construction robots is huge. According to data from the National Bureau of Statistics, the gross output value of the construction industry has continued to expand over the past ten years. From 2012 to 2021, the gross output value of my country’s construction industry has continued to rise from 13.7 trillion yuan to 29.3 trillion yuan. , The added value accounted for as high as 7% of the GDP; in 2021, the construction area of housing construction in the national construction industry will be 15.75 billion square meters, a year-on-year increase of 5.4%.
However, my country’s construction methods are still very backward, and digital applications account for very little. Statistics from the China Construction Association show that China’s construction information investment accounts for only 0.08% of the total output value of the construction industry, while developed countries in Europe and the United States have reached about 1%. , which means that our country still has a lot of room for development.
Still, the readiness of the construction industry to accept and use robots is something to consider. On the one hand, allocating resources to robots while dealing with declining margins and profitability can be challenging for many construction companies; On the one hand, adopting robots is not as simple as plug-and-play, and construction companies may have to completely redesign or redesign their workflows to take full advantage of robots.
For construction, an ancient industry that relies on labor for a long time, it is not easy to carry out automated process transformation, but the use of automation to achieve cost reduction and efficiency increase is an inevitable trend in various industries today, and the construction industry is no exception. According to the McKinsey Global Institute It is estimated that some parts of the construction industry could increase productivity by a factor of 5-10 by moving to a manufacturing-based production system.
