The Automated Bricklaying Robot is a State-of-the-art System that Automates the building of Brick, Block and Mortar Houses
Our mission is to automate the construction of standard brick, block and mortar housing. We have been developing, building and trialling our Automated Bricklaying Robot since 2016.
Using state-of-the-art robotics, the ABLR radically modernises the House Building Industry. The use of standard products; bricks, blocks and mortar alongside a digitised version of architects plans will provide a new standard of housing and provide vital improvements to the traditional House Building Industry.
In October 2020 the ABLR went to build its first house. Our team has been working on significant improvements to the system since then, which will guarantee a commercially viable product, that will work with 100% reliability on-site.
Automated Bricklaying Robot Benefits
Up to 15sec per brick
UK housebuilding market focused
Improved health and safety
Increased build accuracy
State-of-the-Art Robotic Engineering
The machine uses state-of-the-art robotics technology to lay bricks, blocks and mortar. The ABLR which comprises a bespoke gripper arm and dispensing nozzle is enclosed within a 9m vertical lifting frame that sits on a bogie, mounted onto a track. The easy to install track is fitted around the house perimeter. A person-riding lift, which is used by a skilled tradesman to undertake the final quality inspections and install ancillary components is also mounted onto the track and follows behind the ABLR.
Creating a new standard – Intelligent Control System
The ABLR encourages a design-led House Building process. Our Sophisticated Control System reads digitised versions of the architect’s plans. This transforms the House Building process as once build accuracy is 100% guaranteed, internal house parts can be pre-ordered.
