Internet of Things: Implications for Sheet Metal and HVAC Contractors – a NHF White Paper

Jul 09, 2020

SMACNA Members and Chapters:

nhf_logoThe Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the ability of internet-enabled devices to communicate independently. What that means for the construction and service contracting industries is presenting a variety of opportunities and challenges that will have a transformative effect on these sectors of our economy, and smart contractors need to be aware of the implications.

NHF-Cover 400x483New for 2020, this white paper by the New Horizons Foundation seeks to increase awareness among sheet metal and HVAC contractors of how big data will change the way that buildings and building systems are designed, constructed and maintained. HVAC contractors who have the connections and insight to be on the front end of these transformations can become more valuable to their customer – the owner.

So, take a look at this latest New Horizons Foundation white paper. I think you’ll find it a quick and insightful read!

Sincerely yours,
