China’s largest property developer plans mass production of construction robots

January 21, 2020 by Steve Nson

Some people question why we discuss topics like Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at our real estate festival and how relevant is it to solving today’s most pressing real estate challenges. Well, it is actually more relevant than most people think, case in point, the largest property developer in China, Country Garden, with annual revenues of $80 billion is planning on spending $2.3 billion annually over the next five years on building it’s own construction robots. The rationale behind this decision is that construction robots will reduce costs and improve safety.

In addition, the company is also developing robots for its agriculture, restaurant and property management business and most recently opened up its first robotic restaurant.  The firms also plans to have unmanned robotic farms and offer home service robots to each of its residential home buyers. 

This is exactly why our ASDAiRE conference during AnySizeDeals Week – The Festival of Real Estate Innovation will focus exclusively on covering the various challenges and opportunities that artificial intelligence and robotics are playing within the real estate ecosystem and the practical applications for today’s real estate owner and operator.
