In a visionary move to usher in the future of construction technology, the South Korean government has unveiled plans to embrace smart construction technology by 2025, with the ultimate goal of implementing a fully automated construction system by 2030.
This ambitious vision, outlined in the “smart construction technology roadmap” devised by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport in 2018, relies heavily on integrating cutting-edge robotics and modern technology.
Amid this transformative era in construction, Korean startup Gole Robotics stands out as a trailblazer in revolutionizing the industry. Founded in 2023, Gole Robotics is taking the construction landscape by storm with its innovative approach to automating material transport through state-of-the-art robotics, positioning itself at the forefront of this technological evolution.
Smart Solutions for Labor-Intensive Tasks
Gole Robotics’ flagship product, a robotic lifting scaffolding device, is designed to tackle the labor-intensive challenges commonly encountered on construction sites. This groundbreaking innovation automates lifting heavy materials, eliminating the physical strain on workers, optimizing productivity, and expediting project completion. Its ability to operate efficiently even in the most challenging construction site environments sets this solution apart.
One remarkable feature of Gole Robotics’ solution is its role in the late stages of construction projects. During the crucial finishing work, Gole Robotics takes the lead by handling the lifting tasks at night, ensuring uninterrupted workflow and saving valuable time. This nighttime operation increases worker efficiency and reduces the overall construction timeline, making it a win-win situation for contractors and clients.
Gole Robotics is making its cutting-edge technology accessible through a rental service model. Construction companies can now tap into the benefits of automated material transport without significant upfront investments. The company’s robotic solution efficiently manages all aspects of loading and unloading materials, providing a hassle-free experience for construction teams.
Testing and Expansion
Gole Robotics’ innovation is already making waves within the Korean construction industry, with successful testing at select construction sites in the country. Buoyed by its initial success, the company is now setting its sights on both domestic and international markets, with a keen eye on the United States, where a shortage of construction workers has created an urgent need for automation and efficiency.
