  1. For a traditional wall cavity how would it deal with wall ties, insulation etc?

  2. Network Rails is trialling similar technology with the university of Birmingham

  3. Andrew,

    There are 2 choices with what you say.

    Firstly, you have a human doing the complex work with accessories (no one said the technology does away with people).

    Or, you redesign so wall ties are no longer needed, and the insulation is elsewhere.

    Anyway, the technology will have limits, like restricted access for the vehicle, and limits on complexity it can cope with (lintels, anyone?).

    It wouldn’t do away with bricklaying as a skill, just compensate for the shortage of skilled tradesmen.
