With the industry facing increased environmental regulation and therefore the need for less expensive buildings, robotic automation reduces waste by improving quality and consistency, which is critical when it's estimated that up to 1 / 4 of fabric transported to a vacant lot leaves as waste3. With automation and digital solutions, builders also can design waste out at the start of a project through effective building design and construction processes. With quite 200,000 vacancies for low and high-skilled workers within the EU alone in Q2 20204, the industry labor shortage may be a growing issue, with younger people postpone construction careers by perceptions that it's a dangerous occupation. Construction workers account for around 30 percent of workplace injuries and are up to fourfold more likely to be involved during a casualty vs. other sectors, with an estimated 108,000 fatalities per annum worldwide5. Robots can make construction safer by handling large and heavy loads, working in unsafe spaces, and enabling new, safer methods of construction. Using robots for the repetitive and dangerous tasks that folks increasingly don't need to try to do means automation can help support the industry's labor and skills crisis and make construction careers more appealing to children.
