The world is changing rapidly. Exploding population and the need for affordable housing, transportation and utility infrastructure is just one of the megatrends shaking up the construction industry. However, the permeation of technologies into construction domain has shown transformative effects on society --reducing construction costs, narrowing global infrastructure gaps, boosting economic development. By adopting technological innovations, many construction companies are able to increase productivity, streamline project management and enhance quality and safety.
As the construction industry all over the globe is facing a labour crisis, forward-thinking industry leaders are investing in robotic bricklayers, which can lay bricks three times faster than humans. These robots are being used to lay modularly designed, easy to connect “lego” type bricks that have space for insulation, electricity and plumbing. Such practices are not only fighting the labour crisis but also reducing construction costs, time and material wastage. While these robotic bricklayers require human oversight, the fact remains that more bricks can be laid, in less time, with the need for fewer skilled masons.
