More about Q-Bot

Q-Bot was founded in 2012 with the objective of using robots to insulate suspended floors of existing buildings. In the UK there are over 12 million cold and draughty homes with suspended timber floors, representing a huge market opportunity, with few practical or cost-effective options to upgrade them. Q-Bot has successfully commercialised a unique solution to this problem, that uses a robotic device to apply insulation in situ without the expense and hassle of traditional methods. The company has already insulated over 2,500 properties in the UK, improving energy efficiency and saving residents on average £300/yr (verified by the Energy Savings Trust), with demand demonstrated in Europe, North America and Australasia with the total potential market well over £100bn.


Q-Bot’s goal is to make it easier and simpler for contractors to retrofit existing buildings by rethinking processes that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. Q-Bot’s solutions empower workers, improve productivity and safety, while reducing costs.


Q-Bot’s current business model is to work directly with housing associations and local authorities to create market pull, and then sign-up installation partners to deliver the service in each region. The installation partners upsell the service through their existing channels, deliver to a wide range of markets, and pay Q-Bot a share of the revenues that result. This model is highly scalable and ensures the technology is utilised across a range of different sectors, while Q-Bot only needs to foster relationships with a small, focused group of customers. Q-Bot’s network already includes more than 20 install partners in the UK, France and the Netherlands.


Q-Bot currently employs 60 people and is headquartered in Oval, London, with regional operational bases in Harrow, Newport and Newcastle. Q-Bot is the world's first company to receive BBA accreditation, or equivalent, for robots to work on construction sites (delivering retrofit insulation). In the process Q-Bot received innovation awards including Queens Award, CIBSE, Ashden, Business Green and many others.


Q-Bot is an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion, belief, sexual orientation, or age.
