Industrial automation powerhouse Kuka is set to build a smart factory for digital construction company Admares, a move that could “revolutionise” the construction of buildings.

According to the partnership, smart factories will greatly increase the level of automation in the construction industry and cut construction times by over 70%.

Mikael Hedberg, CEO at Admares Group, said: “We are very excited to work together with Kuka, the world’s leading supplier of intelligent automation solutions.

“The know-how of Kuka is crucial while Admares sets up the world’s first automated and robotized factory for mass-producing off-site manufactured smart buildings.”

With the signing of the cooperation agreement, Kuka and Admares say they are setting an example of disruption in the construction industry.

As the future general contractor, Kuka will supply the robotic automation systems and production lines for the new smart factories.

Timo Heil, CBDO at Kuka Systems, said: “We believe that Admares has a great vision of housebuilding which will change the industry. And we are proud to be part of it.”
