Fastbrick Robotics (ASX:FBR) has announced that a house under construction with partner Archistruct Builders & Designers has reached lockup stage.

The house has been built using FBR’s proprietary system of precision bricks and adhesive that are the intended preferred materials to be used by the Hadrian X.

The construction was carried out using manual bricklaying labour methods to confirm that the materials used were able to design a structure capable of receiving engineering and Council approval, which it now has.

The bricks used in the construction feature perpendicular joints, meaning adhesive need only be applied to the top and bottom of the bricks. This method allows for greater thermal efficiencies for the house and improves the overall strength of the structure.

This latest milestone is part of FBR’s pilot strategy of using Perth as a test market for its technology and follows on from the announcement earlier in the month that FBR will construct 11 houses with Archistruct using the Hadrian X prototype.

FBR plans to begin building the homes in the 3rd quarter of 2017, and to manufacture around 8000 of the robots over the next decade.

The technology developed by FBR has the potential to revolutionise the bricklaying industry, however the company is still early stage and is yet to complete a commercial prototype.

As such FBR should be considered an early stage investment proposition and if considering this stock for your portfolio you should seek professional financial advice.

At present the technology is not proven in a commercial setting, please seek financial advice before making any investment decision.
