Automated and Sustainable Building Construction is a two year study (January 2016 - December 2017) co-funded by a grant from the Germany / Hong Kong Joint Research Scheme sponsored by the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong (Reference No. G-HKU704/15) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD Grant No. 57217359). As part of the study, the Chair for Building Realisation and Robotics (TUM, Prof. Bock) and the Hong Kong University’s Department of Civil Engineering (Prof. Wei Pan) cooperate for the identification of scenarios in the context of using automated and robotic technologies for sustainable high-rise construction. The study will integrate the complementary knowledge of the partners in the field of automated construction (TUM) and sustainable high-rise construction and build scenarios for 2025 for Hong Kong by considering a broad array of influencing factors.
