Description

Description

Mechanical-contracting operations rely on software, machinery, and advanced processes now more than ever. Integrating these processes into the business model is key to realizing the rewards of these technological advances. We’ll discuss the elements of early costing, estimating, modeling, prefabrication, modular construction, and washing models back through the estimating process. We'll also look at using Fabrication software content to generate internal manufacturing metrics and communications with business systems.
