The class will discuss our cultural transformation from a plumbing/mechanical contractor to a manufacturer in our fabrication facility. With a focus on innovations and the future of building construction, Cannistraro embarked on a journey to modernize its piping fabrication facility with advanced proprietary equipment. The cornerstone of the success is the integration between Fabrication ESTmep software and the equipment. The goal was to utilize the "I" in Building Information Modeling (BIM) to program the equipment, minimize operator entry, and maximize production while adopting true manufacturing workflows.
