Bots on the Construction Jobsite

Perryn Olson

The construction industry has been ripe for disruption and bots are one of the biggest catalysts in the Con Tech (Construction Technology) sector. While bots aren’t seen on every construction jobsite yet, and most are still in early beta and prototype stages, they are making their presence known. So far, we’re seeing bots laying bricks, autonomously printing buildings, excavate jobsites, managing and delivering supplies via drones, and now tying rebar.

Besides having a robust remote office in a temporary jobsite trailer that houses high speed internet, smartboards, and digital blueprints, the tools on the jobsite have become “smart” too. By smart, I mean connected to the network and offer the user detailed information about the job at hand. Yes, we’re way past tools just having digital displays and laser beams.
