Emerging Technologies for Mechanical Contractors

Smart Tools, UAVs and Others – and how they relate to the internet of things 

Savvy construction industry professionals confess that acceptance of technology is the future. A good number resist committing their time and resources while hoping to see results by using tech for sake of tech. Tech innovations are sweeping the industry to the point that even the standard issue hard hat is changing, in addition to new advances that benefit every area of the industry, for those that embrace the future. In this seminar, Michael McLin, will examine some of the new technologies that are driving a more connected future.

During this session, we will discuss:

  • Technology planning and budgeting
  • Assessment of current and future technology needs
  • Options and desired capabilities of software choices in estimating, business development, job cost management, corporate financial management, design, fabrication, and field operations.
