The report includes a quick review and reevaluation of what was predicted and presented in 2008 (this study now archived). It quickly moves into a presentation on future trends and the major implications of those trends for HVAC and sheet metal contractors. This report should be used by:

  • Contractors and their key employees as they revisit their strategic plans or develop new strategic plans;
  • Industry leaders as they seek to guide the industry toward enhanced or sustaining positions in evolving, creative, and challenging markets; and
  • Institutions (national and local) that serve the industry. Both future challenges and opportunities are clearly defined for all to see.
