Technology-infused Construction for Better Living
Structural construction processes are made using construction technologies which is a set of engineering techniques. The technique is used to design transport systems, industries, and projects related to energy. Construction usually follows traditional methods, and now, it has reinvented itself with the help of modern technologies. China, for the development of the urban and rural areas, released the outline of the modern development of the building and construction industry in 2015. The government of China aims to increase the number of prefabricated building midst of all newly built structures to more than 20 percent by 2020 and 50 percent by 2025.
To assist the robot workforce, Sany’s SPCS technology was released in October. Pre-fabricated construction equipment and robots replace the need for manual work in digital factories. There is a constant change in consumer expectations and preferences, and to meet consumer demand, innovative techniques are used to build smart homes. Basic quality that is necessary for building a house is a comfort. The comfort factor will influence decision making; the structure must be personalized and designed to meet the individual needs. The construction must be economical for the user; overpricing of structures will reduce the demand for the smarter home. Quality structures must be constructed to withstand various weather conditions; sustainable homes with proper energy supply will fully satisfy the users. Prefabricated houses are sometimes entirely made in factories and placed in the desired location.
There is a need for prefab homes as there is a rise in demands for a greener and smarter home, but the labor force is not skilled enough. Lack of skilled labors creates inefficiency, and by bringing in a robot workforce, the demands can be met adequately. Prefab houses are built in factories to reduce the cost of construction; the quality of the house can be maintained consistently. Tradition building methods affect the health conditions of workers. Usually, construction methods accumulate a lot of waste products and toxic chemical that doesn’t easily breakdown and biodegrade. Prefab houses are constructed by robots with optimum resources and minimum waste; for a green environment, people must adopt technology in their home construction.
