Below is a small collection of intro videos on what we believe to be transformation technologies that will change the way teams in AEC and FM industries design and deliver projects.
Proprietary 3D printer and extruded material for the reinforcement of walls -- potentially achieving "3D printed rebar" in the future
ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS
Purpose-built large-scale 3d printer gantry system for 1-day construction of a FOB barracks.
A lightweight "soft robot" powered by compressed air that allows for the safe close proximity of laborers to robotic arms. Painting, sanding, cleaning, patching, and other "surface treatments" are potential applications.
EKSO BIONICS | ZeroG
The ZeroG arm carries the weight of an attached tool to increase safety, improve quality, and speed up production. Future solutions help workers hold their arms during overhead work and allow workers to carry heavy materials with worn exoskeletons.
3D printer using blocks of material and industrial adhesive.
Williams Robotics is designing and manufacturing robotic systems that will build the homes of the future, beginning with a system that automates the construction of stub wall panels in a manufacturing facility or at the job site.

A fully automated end-to-end drone solution that goes far beyond standard drone options. It's self deploying, self landing, self charging operation allows for on-demand or on-schedule continuous utilization to answer the needs of industries such as energy, mining and oil & gas by providing a safe, cost-effective solution available on-site and on-demand.
Reinvent and reimagine your workforce training. Harnessing our virtual reality technology, your team can expand their capabilities and potential more than ever before. Close the books, lower the pencils and dive into a different reality—an engaging, life-like world where learners thrive.
Eyetap is an organization run by Steve Mann, known as the "father of wearable computing." This "welding vision technology" is still under development but can provide value as a training tool today and shows promise for field applications -- once the associated computers are miniturized (it currently requires a high-end gaming laptop).
This video shows autonomous heavy equipment within a United Rentals yard, made possible by a constellation of Ultra Wide Band (UWB) beacons (used for navigation) and retrofitted control units for on the equipment.
Built Robotics is using autonomy to make construction safer, faster and more affordable. Initially focused on automating the earthwork operations on residential development projects.
KEWAZO is a German startup developing a robotic system that significantly optimizes scaffolding assembly.
HoloBuilder allows construction professionals to build and share 360° building sites. By digitalizing buildings in minutes, HoloBuilder reduces travel time, transaction and legal costs throughout the entire building lifecycle.
BONE Structure® is a steel construction system leading the way towards high performance, energy efficient homes, designed and built using an integrated process inspired by the aerospace industry.
Prefab modular residential structures designed to leverage the efficiencies of the intermodal shipping network combined with the quality control systems of in-factory fabrication of 90% of the finished home.
