This paper examines issues which relate to the feasibility of using robotics in the construction industry. Major factors which will influence when and how robotic concepts and machines are implemented in support of the production process in construction are considered. The primary factors driving the adoption of robotics in construction are identified as need, technological feasibility, and the economics of implementation.
