SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) have launched a call for proposals for integrated robotics & automation solutions to improve productivity and reduce labour dependency in Singapore’s built environment sector.
The initiative was unveiled by Tan Kiat How, Minister of State for National Development and Communications & Information, during his keynote speech at the International Built Environment Week 2021 on Sept 9.
Robotics and automation is a key thrust in the government’s industry transformation plan under the digitalisation pillar of the Construction Industry Transformation Map.
