Built Robotics’ mission is to build the robots that build the world. By upgrading off-the-shelf heavy equipment with AI guidance systems, Built’s technology enables machines to operate fully autonomously.
Our robots are equipped with a multilayer safety system to ensure 100% safe operation. The fleet has worked for over 7,500 hours with a perfect safety record.
Sensors detect people, animals, and other vehicles
Robot movement is confined to a specified work zone
Safety observers can remotely stop operation at any time
In 2017, McKinsey Global Institute published a startling report on the construction industry — labor productivity has fallen 50% since 1970. While other industries have been transformed, construction has stagnated. The effect is that, adjusting for inflation, a building today costs twice as much as it did 50 years ago.
Why? Wages have grown with the rising cost of living, but we still use the same tools and methods, and still get the same amount done each day. The effect is that as a country we’re spending more and getting less. We need a new way to build.
While productivity has been falling, demand for construction is higher than ever. Critical infrastructure needs to be maintained or rebuilt, and housing costs have skyrocketed as demand outstrips supply. But there aren’t enough qualified people to do the work.

Featured in ENR as one of the largest builders in the US, Mortenson is known for major projects such as wind and solar farms, as well as the new Chase Center in San Francisco.
Built’s technology is amazing, and their team has integrated with us seamlessly. Over the course of our partnership, we’ve seen them make tremendous progress in just a few months. Looking ahead, I believe they will make a significant contribution to our production and accelerate our schedules on renewables projects across the country.”Nick SchwietzCivil Group Project ManagerMortenson
