The Material Unit Lift Enhancer (MULE) was developed by New York based company Construction Robotics.
It is now operational at Sisk’s Wembley Park E05 site where it is being used in the construction of a multi-storey car park.
Sisk intends to roll the MULE out across its other construction projects in Ireland and the UK in the coming months.
MULE is a lift assist device for materials weighing up to 134lbs which feel weightless to site workers.
Sisk said the machine is not designed to replace bricklayers or masons but “improve their working conditions and enable them to focus on other aspects such as the pointing of brickwork.”
