Q-Bot Limited, was formed in 2012 by award winning architect Tom Lipinski and Professor Peter Childs from Imperial College London, with the goal of using robotics and AI to transform the construction industry. Q-Bot’s solutions enable the delivery of innovative new services for the inspection, maintenance and upgrade of buildings which empower workers, improve safety, are cost-effective, and efficient. Q-Bot is revolutionising the industry by connecting the built environment with robotics and AI, to rethink processes that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years.
Q-Bot has already brought to market a unique retrofit solution, using a robotic device to apply insulation under suspended floors of existing homes. The solution is cheaper, performs better, and has none of the disruption of more traditional methods. Through its work with local councils and housing authorities, for whom it is increasingly becoming the de facto standard, the Q-Bot solution has been proven to reduce fuel poverty by improving the energy efficiency of homes, whilst substantially reducing their carbon footprint- cementing the company’s strong ESG credentials. Q-Bot has also grown to work with private customers, to reduce household bills, and eliminate the discomfort caused by cold draughts coming up through floorboards. The solution is TrustMark certified and fully accredited by the BBA.
