We are proud to announce that as a first project on the Aachen West Campus, the RWTH Aachen University hands over an area to the Center of Construction Robotics (CCR) for the establishment of a reference construction site.
The CCR therefore organizes a handover ceremony on the 6th of February 2020 at 12.15 to make this transfer official. We are pleased to welcome guests from science, industry and politics to this opening ceremony.
The Center Construction Robotics (CCR) is a consortium that consists of industry partner together with an interdisciplinary scientific team, with the goal of researching the “construction site of the future”. CCR focuses on digitalization over the entire value chain from pre-production to the automated construction site. The reference construction site - an area of 10.000m² - will serve as a Living Lab Incubator. New construction processes, machines, software solutions as well as teaching, work and communication concepts will be tested here.
After an exciting year we would like to say thank you to everybody who worked with us and participated in our courses. We are looking forward to interesting projects in the year 2020.
We wish you happy holidays, joyful Christmas days, and a happy new year.
The future of construction was the topic of the BRZ-Mittelstandsforum 2019 in Nurnberg. Our director Prof. Sigrid Brell-Cokcan took part by showing the possibilities and demands of digitalization in construction.
Further impressions of the event can be seen in this film.
Congratulations to Maximilian Becker for being awarded at concrete design competition 2018⁄2019. Maximilian Becker did his masterthesis at the chair of individualized production last year. His work concluded robotic fabrication processes for ultra-lightweight concrete structures, where he developed an innovative process for concrete space-frame structures called b’free.

By the end of September, our director Prof. Sigrid Brell-Cokcan and researcher Rushi Dai have participated in a trip to China together with the RWTH-Rector delegation.
This delegation has visited Tsinghua University in Beijing and the Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School (SIGS) in Shenzhen to talk about the future collaboration between RWTH Aachen and Tsinghua University. The rector, Prof. Ulrich Rüdiger from RWTH Aachen and the chairman, Prof. Xu Chen from Tsinghua University has signed the Letter of Intent in the meeting to continue the collaboration in the coming years.
During the trip, Prof. Sigrid Brell-Cokcan was invited to make talks in both University of Science and Technology Beijing and Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School to promote our new international master - M.Sc. Construction and Robotics.
