I just returned from the National Electrical Contractor Association’s international conference held in Boston. Two words – “Disruptive Technologies.”
Like virtually every industry, the electrical construction industry is undergoing a massive transition in both the way we think about our work and how we perform our work. As one conference speaker asked, “Are you a resistor or a transistor?” Resistance is futile!
The list of disrupters is substantial. Here are just a few:
Detailed 3D BIM modeling
Integrated mobile technology and information on jobsites
3D Printing in construction
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
Enhanced jobsite safety
Much is being written regarding the impact all this disruption will have on the entire construction industry. ForConstructionPros.com outlines 10 Trends shaping the industry this year.
The JATC Electrical Apprenticeship, based in its state-of-the-art facility in Lanham, MD, trains the Washington, DC region’s best electricians.
