Swedish Construction Robot lifts 14 tons


Swedish construction service group Skanska has developed a new construction robot for housing construction. Constructing a house on the ground independed of weather conditons and without scaffold and cranes is the innovative idea Skanska has tested in a full scale trial with its new construction robot that can lift 12 tons with millimeter precision. The robot assembles building elements and lifts heavy parts upp from the gound to next level. The advantages with this method are less time of construction, lower costs, easier planning and safer working environment. Video (in Swedish only).
