Last week, IndustryTap reported on how Chinese engineers rebuilt a 1,300-ton bridge in just 36 hours. The trend toward 3D automated construction is picking up momentum.
Australia’s Fastbrick Robotics is one new company pushing the construction envelope with fully automated, end to end, bricklaying. Fastbrick’s robotic system, know as Hadrian, is capable of building a full-size house in just two days. The company was recently acquired, as part of a provisional agreement, by DMY Capital, which is expected to promote the technology to the global construction industry. The company was also recently listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.
With typical salaries for human bricklayers pushing $100,000 a year, Fastbrick’s technology looks like a winner. The following video is an animation of Fastbrick at work.
