Building growth technology is rapidly recognised at a global level as being a key aspect in the future of construction projects, although construction robotics and automation (CRA) has undergone any major reality deployment to date. Nevertheless, the latest, substantially sustainability requirement is potentially the necessary cause for the larger implementation of construction robotics and automation. There are nevertheless small attempts at the detailed investigation of the effect of using construction robotics and automation on the sustainability efficiency of buildings and construction, but structured advice for the building industry is lacking in this sense. The study in this paper represents the first step towards addressing by analysing and examining the construction robotics and automation techniques and innovations available and for the first time creating a coherent system of metrics for measuring the sustainability efficiency of construction robotics and automation usage in buildings. The ultimate objective of the study must therefore be the creation of a rigorous and consistent methodology for evaluating, within this framework, the feasibility of construction robotics and automation in the construction projects context.
