Build-r is developing “Rob the Build-r”, a robot that will truly disrupt the drywall installation market. At night, when the construction industry is at complete shutdown, our system will enter the floor and do so without fatigue until the workers arrive the next morning. At this point, the walls will stand ready for other labor groups to perform their work. 

Rob is an industrial robot fitted on a mobile robotic platform. Drywall installation is one of the most laborious and repetitive tasks during a build, and the pick-and-place like activity is well suited for robotic implementation. It is also one of the heaviest and most strenuous tasks and our robot will prevent the many injuries workers experience
from lifting the 20 kg boards.
