As the fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, continues to evolve, it becomes imperative for construction firms to seek, find, and adopt new technologies that transform the traditional, conservative construction industry into Construction 4.0. Autonomous Robotics, a pillar of Industry 4.0, have the potential to automate construction sites. In recent studies, researchers have explored potential applications for robotics in different project aspects such as structure works and safety monitoring, highlighting significant improvements on project performance. However, automating construction sites via robotics comes with major barriers, making it challenging for construction enterprises to adopt robots. Thus, this paper reviews recent studies to recapitulate the current state of robot implementation in construction and provide a list of recommendations for construction enterprises. Recommendations are presented in a simple framework that can serve as a roadmap to adopt robotics in the industry and a decision-making tool to guide companies in the implementation of robotics.
