Ep6 - Seamless building sites through open BIM

Guest in Håvard Bell´s studio in this episode is Aleksander Bjaaland, CEO of Holte, a leading creator and distributor of software, services and training courses for the Construction Industry in Norway. The Holte mission is to simplify the Construction sector and make it more efficient. Catenda´s vision is to make the Construction industry data driven through open standards.

Making open BIM the foundation of the seamless building sites is something we both believe is key, but the end user should just get great tools.
