Futurecast Part Two: The Future of BIM

May 10 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm CDT

Our next Futurecast event will be on Tuesday, May 10, at the Rock Bottom Brewery in Chicago’s River North in partnership with ASHRAE. We hope you will be able to join us for some great local brews, delicious food, and another interesting technical talk. Our presenter is Hugh Seaton, the founder of the software firm The_Link, who will talk about The Future of BIM. Hugh will address:

  • BIM developments you should know about now (mostly Revit plugins)
  • Automation – how BIM coordination will continue to get faster & easier
  • Integration – how BIM workflows will connect to everything from purchasing to scheduling
  • Fabrication – how BIM workflows will connect directly to fabrication
  • Generation – how generative design will create a whole new toolkit for VDC

Hugh Seaton is founder of The_Link, a software platform aimed at making specifications useful for contractors. Prior to this he was general manager of Crosswalk by CSI. Hugh has spent almost three decades in technology development and marketing, discovering his passion for construction technology on a BIM project in China. A founding member of the AEC Hackathon, host of the Constructed Futures and Data in Construction podcasts, and author of the Construction Technology Handbook, Hugh continues to explore ways to help the industry balance technological progress with the practical realities of construction.
