When companies are inventing ways to make things better and quicker –  that’s progress. And in a world where innovation is the new blood that drives our economy, companies like this next one are pushing the limit and transforming their industries in ways that most people probably never imagined.

Introducing: Fastbrick Robotics

Imagine a world where construction becomes a 24/7 delivering activity – where building blocks are set out quicker than it takes to cook a Shepherd’s Pie and where buildings are erected, literally, overnight – and all through robotics.

In this Focus on Friday feature, we look at Fastbrick Robotics – an Australian-based organisation who has introduced the world’s first Digital Construction System – The Hadrian X.


Here’s what they say: “Fastbrick Robotics Limited (ASX:FBR) is an Australian robotic technology company developing and commercialising digital construction technology solutions. Fastbrick Robotics’ revolutionary bricklaying machine Hadrian X represents the first application of the Company’s underlying intellectual property portfolio. Hadrian X is a globally patented 3D robotic bricklaying system and marks the transition to dynamically stabilised robots operating outdoors in uncontrolled environments. Fastbrick Robotics is committed to improving the safety, speed, accuracy, cost and waste management in the global construction industry through utilising the world’s latest innovations in mobile robotic technology.”


Here’s why we’re taking note:  Organisations that are transforming their industry and improving the “we’ve always done it this way” process are organisations who are riding the wave of digital disruption. They are becoming the trendsetters for a new way of thinking and they recognise that growing their businesses stems from innovation. Pioneering technology much like the Hadrian X are the types of movements that set the pace for a new take on improving and growing industries that are in desperate need for revamping. The Property Technology market is brewing – and perhaps it’s the Construction industry that is sitting up, and taking notice. Fastbrick Robotics certainly are.
