The progress fostered by the fourth industrial revolution requires building methods according to productivity and sustainability, which also considers the human factor. Therefore, this work addresses safety and efficiency of construction tasks and transformation by robots. As a case study, assembly process of “stay-in-place” concrete blocks is studied, consisting of prefabricated insitu molding pieces with thermal insulation, and finishing included. The movements of the worker in the assembly are evaluated, to be supported by robot procedure and its implications in architectural design. By implementing this technology, human risks in the execution of a work are reduced, allowing greater constructive productivity.
