One of the most important functions of the company is taking part in building the community; Norconsult’s interdisciplinary experience provides a solid foundation to participate in developing tomorrow’s infrastructure. Norconsult employs engineers, economists, social scientists, architects, landscape architects, and information and communication technology professionals, as well as experts in a broad range of specialty fields. With a daily focus on developing this multidisciplinary melting pot, Norconsult ensures clients obtain comprehensive advice.

Norconsult’s services contain more than just human resources, technical skills and experience. The company also seeks to improve the clients' business and secure their investments. With cross-discipline interaction, new skills and knowledge, and a better understanding emerge. The company, therefore, emphasises knowledge transfer between the consultancy and its clients.

As Norconsult is owned by its employees, the unique structure allows the advantage of being able to focus on constantly developing itself as well as their clients, without pressure from external shareholders. This allows the company to challenge status quo, ensure innovation in every project, and continuously improve its business model to respond to evolving needs of their clients.

Norconsult is well accustomed to handle both small and large projects of a complex nature. The company covers all phases of a project cycle; from the earliest pre-investment and feasibility studies, through planning and design, tendering and construction supervision, to project implementation, operations and maintenance. Norconsult often partners and cooperates with other companies, research institutions and universities, as well as independent experts.

  • The World Bank (IBRD, IDA, IFC)
  • Regional development banks, i.e., African Development Bank (AfDB), Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)
  • United Nations (UN), including UNDP, UNDESD and UNIDO

Norconsult has major branch and project offices spread throughout the world, and establish new, local project offices when needed, priding itself on effectively distributing knowledge across organisational, geographical and disciplinary boundaries, yet understanding the importance of localization.

The company’s social responsibilities in the markets it operates, as well as the respect for local laws and regulations are key business success factors. Norconsult’s corporate values are based upon good business practice, honesty and respect for other people, and the company’s statutes and operations comply with the general requirements, codes of ethics and quality assurance policies of the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC).
