Asbjørn Levring - Danish Institute of Technology in collaboration wirh NewBIM

During the last 10 years, Asbjørn has worked with development and implementation of BIM—especially the deep understanding of concepts, interoperability, and technical solutions for early design phases, detailed design, construction projects, and processes. He served as task coordinator for several Danish research projects on BIM, and as project manager for numerous practice-oriented research and development projects supported by the research and innovation directorate. The projects are carried out in close collaboration with participating companies and research institutions. In the last few years, he has worked on projects ranging from developing infrastructure advice for governmental, private organizations, and technology-based businesses—to training tasks with clients, advisory and executive parties, producers, and other actors within the building sector.
