Meet SAM, The new American construction robot that can lay bricks 6 times faster than human. Designed by New York-based company Construction Robotics. SAM is ready and willing to lay 3,000 bricks per day. By the use of its combination of a conveyor belt, robotic arm, and concrete pump. By comparison, a human builder will average around 500 bricks per day. Specialists in the field have spoken out against the robot’s arrival and have claimed that the auto-builders could put the jobs of thousands of bricklayers at risk, reported dailymail.co.uk.

The robot needs A builder to load it up with bricks. The machine’s nozzle covers a brick in concrete before the robotic arm puts it in place. A second builder is then needed to smooth over the concrete before the robot places more bricks. The robots have already started work on construction sites in the US.
“For a lot of different reasons, the construction industry has been slow to adopt innovation and change,” construction manager Zachary Podkaminer told Digital Trends. “Compare a construction site today from a picture of one years ago and, with the exception of a few tools, it really hasn’t changed all that much. Now it seems the industry is finally evolving and we’re trying to be a part of that by bringing technology to construction sites.” As Stated by digitaltrends.com
In June 2015, a large-scale bricklaying robot was unveiled in Australia. Called Hadrian, it can lay 1,000 bricks and hour and work around the clock – and could apparently build 150 homes a year.
