The paper will describe a design of functional model of a bricklaying industrial robot that is able to technically implement the complete process of bricklaying. The system will be created at a reduced scale and will be able to brick object. The robotic system for bricklaying will use special developed software which will convert the necessary data of mathematical model from BIM environment to format KUKA for industrial robots KRC4 and make optimal design of movements of the robotic arm. As a result will be developed: a functional model of the robotic bricklaying system including technology (de-palletizing, motion control, cutting and gluing bricks on the bond); Software for data migration (IFC -> KRC4), technical equipment (grip, applying mortar / glue, cutting bricks, control systems); control system including optimization processes (energy, time, material consumption).
