    Did you notice what looked to be missing, even when viewing down the wall with the view of the cavity?

    I saw those, and what looks to be where the anchors for the adjustable ties are projecting through the insulation, but is that what the mason is there for - to walk down the plank and place the adjustable ties into the anchors and lay the ties on the mortar which the robot just laid?

    There looks to be many missing (as you said, though, the video is not clear).

    I wonder how many are actually installed, and how many are installed properly, in trying to keep the work moving for the robot?

    Maybe there are no ties on the job. It is a work casual site.

    Must be ties to anchor brick.
    Likely the video wall was a media example.

    Back in the 1970's, a most mason's laid 1,200 brick a day for large ferms.

    Look what the asians invented to parge walls. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2Aq82WTFH0

    Kinda yea and kinda no. Look at 1:33 m and you can see tie extension in place down in the cavity.

    From another site where I picked it up..:"This video was taken in Rolla, Missouri"

    I'd like to see the day where a mason lays 1200 bricks Robert.

    Some of the best masons I had on my crew laid about 600-750 under ideal conditions.
