"Skyscrapers in the City of London could soon be built by robots rather than by people, according to Alison Carnwath, chairman [sic] of Land Securities, the £8.2bn FTSE 100 construction company.

"The result would be huge productivity gains as more work could be done by fewer people – but also mass layoffs as traditionally labour-intensive construction projects hire fewer and fewer staff.

"... 'Five years ago I’d have smiled wryly if somebody had said to me that robots would be able to put up buildings in the City of London – I tell you we’re not that far off, and that has huge implications,' she said."
