Australian construction robot Hadrian X is to be used to build the walls of between 2,000 and 5,000 homes in Mexico.

Robotic technology company FBR agreed to supply GP Vivienda with ‘Wall as a Service’ (WaaS) bricklaying using Hadrian X.

FBR’s managing director & chief executive officer, Mike Pivac, said: “We are excited to have a term sheet in place to build our first homes in North America under competitive commercial terms. The volume of work contemplated under the term sheet will give us a great start from which to grow our business in North America, as there will be a strong pipeline of work to complete as soon as we deploy.”
