The construction sector has been evolving at a spectacular rate over the last decade.
Technology is opening up new possibilities and opportunities—for better or for worse.
There’s a steady stream of headlines about innovative, disruptive technologies and business models laying the foundation for an industry overhaul.
What lies ahead, hopefully, are more efficient and profitable construction processes ready to fuel a new era of growth.
Let’s take a look at a few of these trends, including ones related to the HVAC industry.
The construction industry has been adopting CAD and BIM technologies for the last couple of decades. Computer Aided Design has allowed architects and engineers to create detailed plans more precisely and efficiently.
Building Information Modeling offers builders the ability to include design, materials, structure, costs, and budgeting all in one dashboard. BIM even allows trades to avoid conflicts at the design stage. For example, onsite conflicts between plumbers and electricians (a common construction problem) can be completely eliminated.
On the heels of CAD and BIM come HDS, 5D, and IoT. Let’s take a look.
It’s easy to see how all of these areas are related to computing technology and cloud-based systems. They may not change the fundamental ways in which ground is cleared and buildings are erected, but their value is in how they can help foresee costly problems, eliminate conflicts, and prevent accidents, all of which provides for greater efficiency and reduced cost.
The HVAC industry is not unaffected by modern construction trends.
Software solutions like CAD and BIM have become a robust part of making sure that ductwork is precisely fabricated, that connections and accessories are exactly right before being shipped, and installation is well coordinated with other trades and little troubleshooting needs to be done on site. The availability of up-to-date databases have even turned estimating from manual predictions to a precise science.
A few emerging HVAC trends include:
