Objectives
1. Examine the theory of automated and robotic construction drawing on the practices worldwide and more specifically within the context of Germany and Hong Kong; 2. Analyze the future possibility and potential (scenarios) of using automated and robotic technologies in Hong Kong sustainable building construction based on the context of German practices; 3. Build scenarios for 2025 for Hong Kong by considering a broad array of influencing factors; 4. Develop strategies and guidelines for potential stakeholders for the use of automated and robotic technologies in sustainable building construction in Hong Kong based on the scenarios analysis; 5. Establish a consortium networking-strategy for discussing developed scenarios and guidelines with stakeholders in Germany and Hong Kong for future technology transfer.
