For MCAA’s new President Brian Helm, technology is not just a passion, but a way of life. Helm is the president of Freeport, Illinois-based Mechanical Inc., part of the Helm Group of companies, which operates in the healthcare, industrial, education, aquatic, water/wastewater treatment, government, high rise, energy and mission critical sectors. Helm pinpoints technology as both a great opportunity as well as the largest challenge mechanical contractors are facing today. He calls it a great recruiting tool, proving to younger generations that construction is not just an old-school industry that cannot change with the times. PM had the chance to catch up with Helm at MCAA19 in Phoenix.
