Wednesday, 30 June 2021 – Robotic technology company FBR Limited (ASX:FBR) (‘FBR’ or ‘the Company’) has completed its second non-residential structure for a customer using Hadrian X® – this time, a childcare centre – to further underline the enormous potential and versatility of its bricklaying technology.
FBR was appointed as a sub-contractor for the childcare centre, which will become a centrepiece for the community being established by Stockland at the Amberton Beach coastal community, near Eglinton in Perth’s north.
Hadrian X® built the double brick cavity walls of the childcare centre, comprising all external as well as some internal walls. The centre was completed on time in 16 build days, and consisted of 8,670 concrete masonry units, the equivalent of approximately 36,500 standard bricks. The work was completed in a significantly shorter time period than the estimate for manual bricklayers, and was charged at the prevailing commercial rate for bricklaying services.
The Hadrian X® was able to operate through challenging weather conditions including heavy rain and strong winds. The childcare centre was built in five sections, requiring five different building positions for the Hadrian X®, and as well as being the largest structure built by the Hadrian X®, it is also one of the tallest, with a 4.8m high wall incorporated into the structure.
FBR’s Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Mike Pivac, said;
“The construction of the childcare centre structure was a major step forwards in the commercialisation and demonstration of the revolutionary Hadrian X® technology.
“The timely construction of the shell of this childcare centre building further proves the real-life, right now, commercial potential of the Hadrian X® and is a fantastic outcome for us and our clients at Amberton Beach.”
