CHICAGO - The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association of Chicago (SMACNA Chicago) will hold its 2010 Trade Show from 1 to 9 p.m., Tuesday, March 30, at Drury Lane, Oakbrook Terrace, Ill. “Building information modeling, or BIM, and sustainable technology are today’s hottest topics in the construction industry,” said Tony Adolfs, executive director of SMACNA Chicago, “so we’re especially excited to offer learning opportunities in these and other areas of expertise at our 2010 trade show.”

Registration for the event is now being accepted, and applications for booth assignments are being processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

“This trade show provides an excellent venue to meet key industry suppliers and manufacturers, who will be sharing information on their products and the latest industry advances,” said SMACNA Chicago President James Cesak of Tal-Mar Custom Metal. “We’re especially excited by the new learning opportunities that will be available at our 2010 event.”

According to Adolfs, BIM is a process that generates and manages building data for the life of the structure, using real-time, three-dimensional building modeling software. “This technology will revolutionize the construction industry as we know it,” he said, “and we are informing our member contractors about it to keep them on the cutting-edge of industry developments.”

Adolfs added that sustainable or green technology is a high priority with John C. Lindemulder Sr., the president of the board of SMACNA nationwide. “Sustainable technology requires ongoing learning, since new developments and products are constantly coming to light,” Adolfs said. “Our trade show offers networking opportunities for contractors who want to explore their green options.”
