Trends In Mechanical Contracting: A Look at Today & Tomorrow

Abstract:
The Mechanical-Contractors Association of America (MCAA) has taken a more scientific approach in its study entitled, "Five Key Trends for the Future of the Mechanical Industry."

For the fifth and final trend, Dighe's research predicts that "Smart materials that combine nanotechnology and sensing nanorobots could create self-healing materials and systems by 2015. The service technician of the future could be a microscopic, versatile robot that can continuously repair systems."

Although nanorobotic techs may not be immediately on the horizon, there have been significant breakthroughs in materials sciences with the development of lighter, stronger building materials. "While nanotechnology has strong commercial potential in industries such as pharmaceuticals and health, no industry could be more affected than construction," says Dighe.
