Abstract

Conventional construction reached its limits. Numerous construction projects, such as Cologne subway site causing a billion euro collapse of a library containing cultural heritage assets, the x times cost overruns of Elbphilharmony Hamburg and the x tens of thousands quality defects of Berlin Brandenburg Airport indicate the necessity of an overdue transformation of the whole sector. Automation and robotics in construction could achieve what other manufacturing and service industries have already successfully demonstrated. This article shows how robot oriented design, engineering, management and technologies for the construction and the building sector in a form of a five volume construction robotics handbook series would elevate the industry onto a proper and dignified level of quality and performance, which matches the level of the rest of the manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors.
