The future of laying bricks for new buildings might be done entirely by robots.

What’s happening:

  • Amsterdam based robotics startup Monumental has raised $25M USD in a new financing
  • The round was led by venture capital funds Plural and Hummingbird

The big idea:

  • Monumental manufactures artificial intelligence powered robots that operate as small, electric autonomous ground vehicles
  • Each one of Monumental’s robots is capable of laying down bricks and mortar in any type of new building with extreme accuracy
  • Monumental leverages their own proprietary software known as Atrium to monitor the progress and efficiency of each of their electric autonomous ground vehicles as they lay bricks

Why it matters:

  • Robotics for brick laying has the ability to massively accelerate construction timelines on new buildings and be at the forefront of validating technology enabled automation for manual labour

Going deeper:

  • Monumental has already successfully completed multiple pilot projects as well as their first large scale commercial construction project for a warehouse building

By the numbers:

  • Monumental already has established partnerships with 25 different construction companies to use their robotics for upcoming projects
