Experienced digitization expert joins buildingSMART Denmark

One of Denmark's most experienced digitization experts will lift buildingSMART Denmark's operations and update Molio's ICT tools.

Peter Bo Olsen, 59, has joined Molio as a standardization specialist. His job will be to facilitate international cooperation in buildingSMART, develop the Danish buildingSMART network and disseminate the inherent value of buildingSMART tools.


Focus on the value of openBIM

The ring is closed, as streamlining processes based on openBIM and information management in relation to the ongoing international ISO 19650 standardization has been a recurring theme for Peter Bo Olsen's work. For several years he has evaluated, documented and disseminated digital practices on building and construction projects.

”BuildingSMART Denmark's work is very relevant, and I’m looking forward to raise awareness of buildingSMART in the Danish building and construction industry by demonstrating how open standards and common file formats create value on several parameters,” says Peter Bo Olsen.

A significant capacity

Ole Berard is Head of Digitization at Molio and is responsible for buildingSMART Denmark and ConTech Lab. He is pleased that he has succeeded in getting Peter Bo Olsen onboard. “Peter Bo Olsen is a significant capacity, and I am very happy that he has agreed to help us lift buildingSMART Denmark's work. Peter Bo has a tremendous knowledge and practical experience, and he also understands the strategic work and is good at developing and maintaining relevant networks. All of which are focus areas for buildingSMART Denmark’s future endeavours,” says Ole Berard.
