The technology and process empowers operators, helping them to become more efficient and productive. It enables construction companies to offer new services to clients and can help contractors swiftly improve the energy efficiency of buildings, reducing heating costs and making them more comfortable for occupants.
Q-Bot’s initial application is retrofitting insulation to UK buildings at a fraction of the current cost, with none of the hassle of traditional methods. In this process, a robot intelligently applies insulation under floors, an environment which, until now, has been inaccessible for human operatives without prohibitive disruption and expense.
Q-Bot was the Highly Commended Winner, Innovation Achiever's Award, in the 2014 CIOB International Innovation & Research Award.
The Judges said, "Q-Bot’s innovative robotic solution recognises the need for a non-intrusive method of improving under-floor insulation in existing properties. It is an exciting and innovative product which has great potential for improving the energy efficiency of the UK’s housing stock. The panel has high expectations for the Q-Bot’s future development.”
In October 2020, Q-Bot launched an improved insulation robot. Ref https://www.bimplus.co.uk/technology/q-bot-launches-improved-insulation-robot/
