CEO’s report

Norconsult - your local consultant backed by the expertise and experience of the entire organization As we have been in the consulting business for more than 80 years, we have a sound foundation as a leading player nationally and internationally. We provide comprehensive consultancy services in community planning and engineering.

Our business is primarily based on value creation through projects. Annually, we complete approx. 7,500 projects of all sizes. Each of them is like a separate business. We ensure that our project organization and our client have the same understanding of goals, challenges, progress and deliver-ables. Then we have to make certain that we have the relevant expertise and capacity available to implement the project as agreed. It is this kind of expertise in project management and good communication with our clients throughout each contract that is needed to achieve success. It is through our project work we show our achievements, and it is through having the most skilled employees, we prove ourselves to be better than our competitors and are the preferred consultant for our clients. Our clients are almost without exception, professional and demanding. They know how to make demands and have clear expectations from us. This keeps us on our toes and results in the necessary improvements and provides healthy development for Norconsult. We thank our many clients and partners for good contact and fruitful dialogue in 2010, and for all the constructive feedback that confirms that we have been valuable to them.

Profitable growth


growth of approx. NOK 220 million compared to the year before. The operating income before tax was 10%. It is with satisfaction that we note that growth has not weakened the company’s earnings ability and financial strength. Good results provide motivation, and the financial freedom that is essential to enable the company to prosper in a market that is constantly changing. Throughout 2010, Norconsult has been determined to continue to expand its range of services and its capacity through organic growth, the creation of new businesses and acquisitions, both at headquarters and in several of our other offices. In addition, we have enjoyed the boost from satisfactory market conditions. Our growth has its clear roots in our desire for professional development in width and depth. It is also gratifying to note that our major subsidiaries, Technogarden (consulting for hire and headhunting) and Norconsult Information Systems (IT solutions for the construction industry), both contribute substantially to the Group’s success.

Strengthened market intervention – increased competitiveness

Over the past few years, we have invested significant resources in a range of professional skills development projects. It is puzzling that this, our most important asset, cannot be read in the balance sheet.

During the year, we hired many new colleagues. This is a significant resource that provides the company with valuable expertise and new market opportunities. At the beginning of 2011, the Norconsult Group had about 1750 employees.

A prerequisite for creating good results is our own productivity and efficiency. It is therefore gratifying to note that 2010 was another record year for the Norconsult Group with a turnover of NOK 2 234 million, representing a

Our goal is to develop an employee-owned, interdisciplinary company that can compete on a par with major international players. Growth is an important prerequisite for strengthening our competitiveness and maintaining our leading posi-

tion. As a consequence, in Norway we acquired the following companies: Techno Consult Møre AS, TekĂ˜k Data AS, Vest Landskap AS, Hardanger Consult AS and Pro Teknologi AS. The Norconsult Group has experienced substantial growth in recent years, and at the same time we have managed to integrate and consolidate the acquired companies, create synergies and ensure they become an integral part of the group.

International success for Norconsult

The group is also developing outside of Norway. In Sweden, our 8 local offices achieved a turnover of NOK 270 million in 2010, an increase of over 30% compared to 2009. A clear prerequisite for further growth in Sweden, is becoming more interdisciplinary and getting a broader geographic footprint and market coverage. A defined goal is to become a significant player in the Swedish energy market. In Denmark, we opened a new office in Kalundborg in 2010, and we are now well positioned to provide advice for environmental projects and the pharmaceutical industry. Our strategy is continued growth and future development in the Danish market. Over the years, Norconsult has had assignments in more than 150 countries. In recent years we have conducted a series of measures and are now well equipped to compete in the international market. Our focus on renewable energy in South America, southern Africa and South-east Asia has produced results, and we are currently heavily engaged in major hydropower projects in which our extensive expertise and unique experience are in demand. There is a huge

potential for further development in these areas, including sustainable energy. This is a field where Norconsult has much to contribute. In a world where greenhouse gas emissions are steadily increasing, it is motivating and in line with our social responsibility and desire for sustainable development that we are heavily engaged in renewable energy. We are therefore taking active measures against increases in greenhouse gas emissions.

Decentralized organization - same brand

Norconsult is a decentralized organization where local knowledge about the customer and the project is a key factor for success. As Norway’s largest consultancy company we have to offer our clients something more in terms of access to resources, expertise and experience. Sharing knowledge and cooperating effectively across disciplinary, organizational and geographic boundaries in a dispersed organization, will continue to be crucial for our competitiveness. During 2010 we invested significant resources in our Intranet, and further developed our disciplinary networks, improved our IT infrastructure and not least, carried a significant effort to further professionalize our expertise in project management. We work hard to streamline our operations to become more effective in our project execution and equip us to face even tougher competition ahead. Norconsult offers consulting in a variety of disciplines, through many organizational units and our local presence with offices in many countries. The goal is that the Norconsult brand, and thus the entire corporation, appears consistent and strong, so that partners and clients have the same impression of Norconsult, anywhere in the world.


Corporate responsibility

Norconsult takes social responsibility and has resilient approaches about how we provide advice. We ensure that our advice and the choice of solutions also protect society’s vulnerability. We have developed considerable expertise in this field over a number of years and see an increasing demand for our services in risk and emergency preparedness. This requires full understanding and active inter-action between our clients and us. This is something we strive for in every project - regardless of size. The culture of Norconsult is soundly rooted in the principles of honesty and respect for others. When one operates a successful company with a long-term perspective, one has to build up trust and a good reputation among the clients as well as in society at large. Norconsult has clear ethical guidelines for our business to ensure that all individuals acting on behalf of Norconsult adhere to the stipulated ethical standards and act in accordance with the standards the company has established.

Changing technology and environmentally sound construction

The building and construction industry is undergoing extensive changes. New contract models, technology development and BIM all create opportunities for closer and more binding cooperation between the different players in a construction project. The industry is also concerned with reducing its environmental impacts and developing energy efficient heating solutions for buildings, to name just some of the focus areas. As the Norwegian market leader in our industry, it is natural that we are at the forefront in this development. This makes sense on two counts - taking responsibility for the further development of the construction industry, while at the same time obtaining a competitive advantage by being the first to implement new technologies, and gain experience and knowledge to meet market needs. Our focus on development and innovation creates new arenas where ideas are exchanged with our clients. The company has established its own training course for innovation process leaders so that we can contribute as facilitators in creative project phases. As a company, we must always remain curious and find out how to improve our project implementation - not only by doing things right, but also ensuring that we are doing the right things.


The road ahead

The Norconsult Group’s financial strength, expertise, market position and contract backlog create a sound platform for the company in the future. We have clear ambitions for continued growth in the future. In the Norwegian market, we will work on maintaining our position as market leader and thereby be the clear first choice in our industry. At the same time, we will endeavour to be a leading player internationally in selected markets. The level of activity at the beginning of 2011 is high. In infrastructure, energy and environment, we are optimistic about the long term prospects. There is an increase in residential and commercial buildings and there is therefore good reason to look forward to a high level of activity in 2011. We believe that the improvements that act as a continuous process in the company will be beneficial for the owners, employees, clients and our partners. We will continue to be a sound company with an international perspective that is owned by the employees. This firm foundation and broad reach generates expectations of successful competition and innovative and exciting projects in the future.

John Nyheim CEO

Excerpt from

the Board’s Report

In 2010, Norconsult increased its revenues and delivered an operating margin that the Board finds satisfactory. Through organic growth, the development of new business opportunities and acquisitions, Norconsult has continued to reinforce its footing both in its home market in Norway and through local offices and companies internationally. Norconsult had a broad level of international activity and was involved in projects in 49 countries during 2010.

Control System

Norconsult’s control system is an integrated system to meet the requirements, risks and objectives, which are based on our core business: planning and implementation of projects of all sizes with a wide range of expertise and a wide variety of clients. The system meets all requirements in relation to relevant legislation and NS-EN ISO 9001.

Research and development

Through an active focus on R&D, Norconsult creates an important competitive advantage by being at the forefront of implementing new knowledge and technology in its consultancy services. Effective planning and good solutions require both standardization and creativity. Norconsult develops methodologies that open the way for innovative thinking in all projects and for all employees through our Innovation Program. Creative techniques have already been utilized in numerous projects with good results.

Social responsibility and ethics

Norconsult takes its responsibility seriously, and has firmly stipulated policies for its consultancy services. The company also emphasizes that its advice and choice of solutions take care of societal vulnerability. The company has for several years built up considerable expertise in this field, and there is also a growing demand for its services in environmental, safety / risk and preparedness issues. The Norconsult corporate culture is based on sound business practices, honesty and respect for other people. Norconsult's success is based on a good reputation and

trust with its clients as well as other stakeholders in the world at large. This is part of the day-to-day behaviour of each and every employee. Norconsult’s ethical guidelines ensure that all individuals acting on behalf of Norconsult act in an ethical manner, adhere to the applicable laws and regulations and work in accordance with the standards set by Norconsult. Norconsult will continue to pay close attention to ensure that its international engagements are conducted in accordance with its ethical guidelines, and will withdraw its operations from a country if the company sees that conditions are not conducive to doing business according to its standards. As a continuation of the work on the ethical guidelines, Norconsult is working on establishing a policy that encompasses all the elements involved in social responsibility in Norconsult (Corporate Social Responsibility - CSR) and complement its control system where needed. Through this work, Norconsult wants to demonstrate that it is a company that takes societal responsibility seriously, both in its own operations and on behalf of its clients. Norconsult also affects people, the environment and material assets directly through its direct daily behaviour. The employees' behaviour, especially when working outside the home office environment, can affect both their own and other people's safety, health and working environment. Such risk is minimized through good practice and awareness.

Health, safety and environment (HSE)

Norconsult has significant and lasting impact on people, the environment and material assets through the advice the company provides to its clients. Norconsult has implemented requirements for the safeguarding of these


issues in its procedures for implementation of projects, in line with requirements for safeguarding of technical and professional quality, time and financial matters.This ensures that the company provides its clients with sound advice that safeguards people, the environment and material assets in a satisfactory manner. Furthermore, Norconsult affects the environment directly through its own activities - specifically resource consumption, pollution and waste as a result of its operational activities. This influence is limited, but still it is desirable and possible to improve this through concrete measures. To achieve an even stronger focus on safeguarding the environment, the company has developed an environmental policy and an action plan for improvements in its direct impact on the environment. Improvements of the company’s procedures for safeguarding the external environment in the planning, design, procurement and implementation of projects are also underway. The energy needs of the company’s offices are mainly covered by electric power, while the head office’s energy needs are partly covered by district heating systems. Norconsult participates in return and recycling programmes for consumer goods where such arrangements are established. In 2010, the company has, among other things, also implemented the following environmental initiatives: • Comprehensive energy conservation measures (supported by ENOVA) to reduce energy consumption in the office building at the head office in Sandvika, Norway. • Implementation of a travel survey for its employees, improvement of the bicycle parking and planning the expansion of changing room facilities at head office. • Extensive use of video meetings for internal project meetings and meetings with clients, to reduce travel needs and thus CO2 emissions • Identification and implementation of specific environmental initiatives at the office in Bodø, Norway and testing the certification as an Eco-Lighthouse (pilot).


The Eco-Lighthouse Foundation offers environmental certification that helps private and public enterprises to conduct profitable and environmental friendly operations. To ensure continuous development of our systematic HSE work in our assignments, Norconsult has established a HSE Coordinator Group consisting of representatives from all divisions and offices in Norway. The Group is a driving force to promote HSE compliance in its projects and assignments.

Internal factors

Safety, health and working environment Norconsult actively works to develop a stimulating working environment that provides the opportunity for personal development within the different career directions offered. Norconsult aims to attract the most skilled engineers and technical consultants on the market. The Board considers Norconsult’s working environment to be good. The company's HSE Coordinator Group had 5 meetings in 2010. The cooperation with employee organizations is regarded as good. Sick leave in Norconsult constituted 3.1% of total working hours compared with 4.4% for 2009. The short-term absence amounted to 1.9%, while long-term absence was 1.2%. The high percentage of sickness absence in 2009 was mainly related to the swine flu. The company has a medical and health insurance programme for its employees. Norconsult has its own policy for internal control of health, safety and security and a system that meets the Internal Regulations. There were 11 recorded accidents in 2010 in Norway and 2 abroad. No accidents resulted in serious injuries. Equality and discrimination The company seeks to safeguard gender equality, equal opportunities and equal rights. It works to prevent discrimination based on ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, skin colour, language, religion or belief.

As of 31.12.2010 Norconsult had 23.9% female staff and 11% of its management are female. Efforts are underway to increase female representation in the operational units and at management level in the company. The proportion of women in the parent company's board of directors is 22%. 4 of the 6 elected representatives to the internal group for safeguarding the work environment are women. The elected senior safety representative is also a woman. Corporate governance The Board believes that Norconsult follows good practices for accounting, management and control. The Board plays an independent role in relation to management. None of the Directors on the Board has any function in the management team of Norconsult.


Norconsult has been an active participant in the restructuring taking place in the industry in Norway. The company will continue to participate in this effort both in the Norwegian and Scandinavian markets. Internationally, in line with the Group's strategy, Norconsult will expand the involvement in the locations where the Group can utilize its unique expertise, is competitive on price and has a channel into the market. The company has a satisfactory financial position. The Board does not anticipate a need for additional capital during the year. The Board still emphasizes that there is general uncertainty related to assessments of future conditions and developments in the market depend on economic conditions and the general economic development.

The Norconsult Group's financial strength, expertise and market position create a very good basis for the company in the future. Market prospects are considered positive in most business areas the company operates in.

Thousands of projects of all sizes

Annually Norconsult completes a large number of projects in the private and public sectors. The projects range from large and long-term contracts dominated by interdisciplinary team efforts, to small, short-term studies and pre-projects, where expertise and consulting experience dominate. Norconsult’s broad resource base ensures that necessary capacity is available to execute its contracts irrespective of content and size.

Norconsult has a wide geographical presence. We focus on local presence combined with the development of local skills. The concept is that local experts can profit from the huge pool of expertise and experience across the organization. With several acquisitions of local companies in Norway, the company is represented virtually "everywhere" in its home country with its 36 local offices. New offices that were established in 2010 were located in Eidfjord, Odda, Kristiansund and Ålesund. Outside of Norway, the company has significant local operations in Sweden with eight local offices, three local offices in Denmark, as well as permanent establishments in Africa (South Africa, Botswana and Mozambique), Asia (Philippines, Laos and Thailand) and South America (Chile). At the same time the company also has several project offices. In addition to expanding its presence in several locations during 2010, the company also expanded its presence in digital communication channels during the year. The creation of our own pages on social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube, means that the company has become more accessible and visible to the outside world. In addition, Norconsult Information Systems was in 2010 approved as a distributor of mobile applications through iTunes, and has developed its first app, which will be launched in 2011.

Responsible for a sustainable development

People are the foundation of our business, and it is the sum of all the work we do and the knowledge, attitudes and values we stand for, which essentially is the company. Norconsult's corporate culture is founded on sound business practices, honesty and respect for other people, and we understand the consequences of our operations in the community and take this into account when making decisions. With this background, during 2010 the company prioritized increasing its efforts to develop awareness of the company's social responsibility and what it means for the individual employee. The work to establish official corporate guidelines for social responsibility and train its employees in these are underway. In addition to focusing on social responsibility in our own operations and consulting practice, Norconsult participates in several initiatives to drive the industry's role and future standards for the good of the society and the environment. Among these are: NORWEGIAN GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL (NGBC) In 2010, about 60 of Norway’s leading players in the construction and the real estate industries took the initiative to establish NGBC. Norconsult is one of the founding partners. The organization will work to achieve exceptional

environmental standards for Norwegian buildings. GLITNE The research project Glitne, along with Snøhetta, Bellona and SINTEF and Norconsult Information Systems as an IT partner, gives the building industry the opportunity to face up to the environmental challenges before a new law will force changes. The user-led research project suggests, among other things, to impose a "mortgage" based environmental fund as an "incentive" to make the construction industry build more environmentally friendly. THE ‘RENERGI’ PROGRAM In seeking to achieve its ambitious climate goals, the Research Council of Norway will distribute NOK 300 million to 49 research projects in green energy through the ‘RENERGI’ programme. The research council decided in 2010 to provide support to the Norconsult project "50% reduction in energy consumption from the hospitals of the future". INTPOW In 2009 Norconsult was co-founder of INTPOW (Norwegian Renewable Energy Partners), and has a representative on the board of the organization. INTPOW is a meeting place and network for Norwegian and foreign companies with activities related to renewable energy. Many global and local challenges must be solved to provide the world with clean energy and sustainable development. Norconsult takes its social responsibility seriously and continues to focus on building skills and knowledge concerning renewable energy.

International priority areas Norconsult’s international strategy is based on developing and building local expertise, while maintaining a strong focus on knowledge sharing within the organization. This ensures that the expertise developed in major offices is being shared with representatives in the smaller, local offices and vice versa.


Øyvind Engelstad, Managing Director in Chile The topography in Chile is very similar to Norway, therefore the experience we have from Norway really falls into place here. It has been a positive experience establishing myself with my family in a new country. We have been warmly welcomed both by the local community and the new colleagues.

Marte Ness, civil engineer – division International Being able to work in international projects from Norway, was the main reason I chose to leave my previous employer and move to Norconsult. Currently, I am working on a hydropower project in Peru.

Tore Horvei, Managing Director in South Africa South Africa is by far the most developed country in the region, and we see great growth opportunities here. We expect that we will be at least 80 employees by the end of 2011.

Britt-Mari Langåsen, civil engineer and participant in the Young Professionals programme The time I spent in Botswana was incredibly exciting. I was involved in lots of different local projects, both in Botswana and Zimbabwe, and also had time to travel in the region. Being involved in building up one of our new offices, also gave me a lot of new experience.

Over the past 50 years, Norconsult has worked on projects in more than 150 countries. During 2010, we conducted a series of new measures and are well equipped to compete on the international market.

throughout the year. Turnover increased by almost 30%, which reflects good market conditions and our positive development in Sweden. At the end of 2010 we had 250 employees at our Swedish offices.


DENMARK Norconsult in Denmark established a new office in Kalundborg in 2010. The office will primarily serve the local industrial enterprises, and our services primarily constitute of advising and consulting for environmental, nutrition and pharmaceutical industries. We have offices in Copenhagen and Århus in addition to Kalundborg. Our presence in Denmark has grown further in 2010 and at year-end we were a total of 18 employees. Our strategy is continued growth and future development of our position in the Danish market.

During 2010, Norconsult had active assignments throughout Europe - including Albania, Belgium, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Russia and the Czech Republic. In addition, we continued to build our operations in Scandinavia through acquisitions, organic growth and collaboration across borders. SWEDEN In Sweden, the construction industry picked up again towards the end of 2009. This affected our level of activity positively in this business area. Within infrastructure the market has been good, and we have won a number of exciting contracts. The same applies in the areas of energy, environment and water and sewerage, which implies a good business activity level

Local presence in emerging economies

Norconsult has been engaged on infrastructure projects in a number of emerging markets for decades. During 2010, Norconsult developed and implemented the strategy


“ “

of having a strong local presence in select markets even further. The strategy is focused on building local expertise in South America, Southeast Asia and southern Africa. The company has several local offices in these regions. The areas are regarded as regions with great development potential, among other things in renewable energy. Norconsult can make an important contribution in this field. Our specific areas of expertise and locally established companies are major factors of success to our international activities. We have local staff with expertise in all our priority areas. We have built local organizations in combination with expert knowledge and management resources from Norway. Temporary project offices in other locations are established when needed. New establishments in other regions with promising potential are evaluated continuously. SOUTH AMERICA In South America, Norconsult has established a local company and office in Chile (Santiago). During 2010, the company also had projects in Peru, Costa Rica and Panama. ASIA In Asia, Norconsult has local companies and offices in Laos (Vientiane), Philippines (Manila) and Thailand (Bangkok). During 2010, the company also had projects in Afghanistan, India, China, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Pakistan, Vietnam and East Timor. AFRICA In Africa, Norconsult has established local companies and offices in Mozambique (Maputo) and Botswana

(Gaborone). In 2010, we established a new office in Johannesburg (South Africa). With this, we have further strengthened our efforts in southern Africa. South Africa is the largest energy producer and consumer on the continent. The new office will primarily focus on providing advice on energy production, transmission and distribution to public and private customers in the energy sector. The office will also gradually build up local expertise in transport, water and environmental consulting. Based on planned acquisitions in South Africa, Norconsult expects to have at least 80 employees in South Africa at the end of next year. This growth is to be based on acquisitions and the attraction and hiring of skilled local personnel. During 2010, the company also had projects in Angola, Kenya, Liberia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Young Professionals Program

In cooperation with the Norwegian Peace Corps, Norconsult established in 2009 an international development program for younger candidates – Young Professionals. The Norwegian Peace Corps provides for mutual personnel exchange between companies in Norway and Africa, Asia and Latin America, aiming to contribute to lasting improvements in the economic, social and political conditions in the world. The program consists of mostly Norwegian candidates who move to destinations in Africa, however the program also opens opportunities for exchange the other way around. The first candidates moved back to Norway in 2010, and the program was proven so successful that it will be continued in 2011.

Professional skills development and knowledge sharing – a must in today’s knowledge society Skills development, knowledge sharing and facilitating interaction across the board, are all crucial success factors in today’s knowledge society. Norconsult is an interdisciplinary knowledge-based company. This means that we must constantly focus on new arenas, tools and measures to stimulate the development of both the individual and our common knowledge.


In today's knowledge society, we are constantly looking for means to better leverage our own experience and adjust ourselves according to external influences. In this work, it is essential to share our professional knowledge and our business expertise. With our extensive disciplinary scope over large geographic areas and with many different interaction points, Norconsult has particular focus on facilitating and ensuring optimal interaction - internally and externally. Achieving seamless integration across knowledge boundaries and roles is a prerequisite for success in today's knowledge society.

A systematic approach to competence development

Professional and personal development of employees is a key success factor in our industry. The company has further focused in 2010 on priority areas of skills development, especially through training of middle managers in a leadership development programme,

Mari Gaaserud, lighting designer and member of the Youth Council In 2010 In the Youth Council we arranged seven interdisciplinary lunches at our head office in Sandvika in Norway. This proved to be a valuable venue for networking and internal marketing, in that people get the opportunity to become acquainted with colleagues across departments and disciplines in an informal setting.

Tom Baade-Mathiesen, Head of water and sewage infrastructure section and voted RIF* consultant of the year It is motivating that one’s efforts for the industry are appreciated, and that one’s contributions are valued. It was very exciting to be part of the team working on the analysis of the Norwegian infrastructure through the report “State of the Nation”. In addition, participating in RIF’s expert panel for water and sewage opened the way for stimulating meetings with other disciplinary experts.

Bent A. Børresen, Dr. Ing. - R&D section and recipient of Norconsult’s Work Environment Builder Award 2010 I have always loved the Norwegian scenery and natural splendour and all the discoveries one can make. I wanted to share this joy with my colleagues, an idea that was supported by the management. I began to create small booklets called ‘Nature in the pocket’; a series that people easily can take with them on a hike. It was inspiring that this interest helped me win our internal work environment award.

Tom Arild Junge, Vice President - finance, human resources and marketing Norconsult was ranked number seven in the Universum Student Survey 2010, and thus ranking the highest of the consultancies by technology students. This is the result of continuous work with selected universities and colleges over a long time, through professorship positions, sponsorship for further development and research, as well as competency development for certain educational directions.

in-house courses in contract management and the creation of yet more disciplinary networks with network meetings and disciplinary portals. THE NORCONSULT SCHOOL During 2010, Norconsult further worked on establishing The Norconsult School. The school is a learning arena and a forum to increase the awareness of the company's ethical guidelines aimed at the environment, our suppliers and business operations in other cultures than in Scandinavia. The school also includes both disciplinary and leadership courses. Part of the programme is mandatory to fill the requirements for some of the company’s roles. The school will first be launched in Norway, and participants in the courses will be employees from different parts of the country and from different disciplinary areas. One purpose is to create networks within the organization as well as to promote interdisciplinary cooperation.


DISCIPLINARY NETWORKS At the end of 2010, Norconsult had 15 active disciplinary networks. The networks are operational across the organizational structure. Each discipline has its own Network Coordinator. This person is responsible for actively working to facilitate the continuous updating and improvement of expertise in the disciplinary field. This includes overview of new laws and regulations that affect the particular discipline and thus affecting our clients. In addition, each Network Coordinator secures the disciplinary quality in all our assignments regardless of localization. Internal disciplinary portals are established and there are frequent disciplinary gatherings. This is crucial to keep the networks running despite geographical distances.

Creating a culture of sharing

Knowledge sharing depends essentially on the individual's desire, ability and opportunity to share. Therefore, it is critical to build a culture and an environment that encourages sharing. The company constantly evaluates and develops new set of principles, processes, organizational structures and technological solutions to promote knowledge sharing. Some of the initiatives we focus on are: WORK ENVIRONMENT BUILDER AWARD The Work Environment Builder Award has been awarded to select Norconsult employees for years. Candidates are identified based on their efforts in providing positive motivation to colleagues. In 2010, the winner was an employee who, over many years, has actively contributed to knowledge sharing both internally and externally. INTERDISCIPLINARY LUNCHES In 2010, The Norconsult

Youth Council organized seven interdisciplinary lunches at our headquarters. The objective of the lunches is to provide an opportunity for employees who do not normally interact with each other to meet in an informal setting. The lunches resulted in network expansion, exchange of disciplinary knowledge and improved insight into our many services offered.

Host, contributor and participant in the development of our industry sector

Norconsult is deeply engaged and makes it a priority to be present at the different professional arenas in our industry. We host and participate in various forums where the academic development is on the agenda. CREATING MEETING PLACES Creating meeting places for the exchange of experience between different stakeholders is an important learning and inspirational arena. Courses and seminars are held regularly under the direction of the company. COOPERATION WITH EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS We are committed to ensuring that the current education matches the skills that will be needed in the future. Norconsult works closely with various educational institutions by contributing to relevant design of study programmes and disciplinary training for tomorrow's engineers and planners. ACTIVITY IN DISCIPLINARY FORUMS Working closely with experts in the field, but with different points of view, is important to be updated and contribute to disciplinary developments. Norconsult has many active participants and board members on several disciplinary forums.

Technology and innovation The construction industry is undergoing major changes. These structural and technological changes will have major social consequences. In this development, Norconsult has a definite role with the insight of an experienced contributor, driving force and source of influence. Our focus on research, innovation and the implementation of new technology are important areas where thoughts and ideas are captured. This is how we create the foundation to establish different ways to work that are more effective than at present.

Ellen Winje Melander, Geographer and attending the Norconsult innovation process management course I see that the innovation process can be used for many different purposes. Everything from a more efficient initiation of a project in which the direction will be defined early or to look for alternative technical solutions during a project. I've already noticed increased demand for expertise from several of our clients.

Magne Lilleland-Olsen, Project Manager Before we had to use a lot of effort to create good reports. With ISY Project Plan, we all report in an efficient manner without having to import files from other programs.

Torger Kjeldstad, senior consultant at Norconsult Information Systems We are in the process of making ISY Project Plan commercially available because there are no other systems that have the functions found in this solution.

Bård Hernes, Vice President of IT It’s exciting with the development of next generation mobile phones. We can increasingly use them as an integral tool. It opens up many possibilities for how the workflow can be made easier - especially when you are outside the office.


“ “

Climate issues and a completely different respect to society and the environment, means that our industry now faces major, and often positive, changes. In addition, technological developments create entirely new conditions, markets and methods. Norconsult is keen to focus on novelty and innovation. We encourage the deployment and testing of original approaches and solutions. Naturally these are to be within the framework of risk assessment, accountability, budgets and project management.

Focusing on creativity and innovation

Norconsult is committed to being at the forefront of the developments in our industry. Through our R&D activities, we focus on innovation for the industry as a whole in addition to applied research and development in our own assignments. R&D focus areas are as follows: CREATIVITY AND "CO-CREATION" Co-creation is a new concept for knowledge-intensive deliveries. The concept can be described as "customer participation in development". This is an expansion of the "Open Innovation" concept. In co-creation, the customer and supplier are equal resources in the development of a delivery. This makes the whole project work an advanced, dynamic learning arena. INNOVATION PROCESS MANAGEMENT EDUCATION In 2010, Norconsult started a training programme for our innovation process managers, as we believe that innovation is a sought-after commodity in the market. The programme focuses on training in creative tools and processes to assist clients and partners through creative project phases. RESEARCH IN PROJECTS Utilizing innovation actively in projects and to lead and participate in research projects, is important to take advantage of practical knowledge. Among other things during 2010, Norconsult worked on research projects with the following focus: 50% reduction in energy consumption from the future hospitals, safety assessment of high-speed railways, health risks in the ventilation of laboratories and implementation of environmental friendly infrastructure for water and sewage. EMPLOYEES WITH PHD Norconsult had, at the end of 2010, 25 employees with doctoral degrees, as well as 5 employees who are PhD candidates. The PhD candidates are researching developments in outdoor lighting, service innovation, hydropower, water resource management and drainage.


Always on the lookout for new systems, methods and solutions

Norconsult is constantly on the lookout for new methods and systems to improve the efficiency and implementation of its projects. The focus on the development and implementation of new services and solutions are made across the entire organization, and in many cases our subsidiary, Norconsult Information Systems, is also involved. BIM Systematic training and elevation of the company’s overall expertise on BIM, is an important element in Norconsult’s strategy. We have established an internal steering committee for BIM. This group works with the BIM coordinators who manage and operationalize Norconsult’s BIM strategy. The group provides expertise in connection with internal Norconsult work and also assists BIM coordinators in the larger construction projects. Norconsult has also established our own resource portals for BIM. Here, users have access to relevant BIM methods, process descriptions, product news, discussion groups, user manuals, examples and training courses. NEW PROJECT MANAGEMENT TOOL In the course of 2009, we began to use the project management tool developed by our subsidiary Norconsult Information Systems, ISY Project Plan. Norconsult was the pilot of this new solution. During 2010, we implemented ISY Project Plan further, and several major projects were steered via the tool. One of them was the interdisciplinary team working on the planning and design of the new terminal ‘T2’ at Oslo Airport Gardermoen, which utilized ISY Project Plan to control resources, costs and progress in the project. MOBILE APP In January 2010, more than 70% of Norwegian employees had a smart phone. It is therefore essential to explore the opportunities this creates. Norconsult Information Systems became in 2010 an approved applications supplier in Apple's App Store. The development of Norconsult’s first mobile app is called ‘The Norwegian Price Book’, and is an updated reference book that contains pricing information for the Norwegian construction industry, as well as CO2 values. The application will be launched in March 2011. 3D VISUALIZATION Application of 3D visualization in the planning stages and as a tool for analysis, simulation and design, opens up new insights. Through 3D visualization, it is easier to understand the end result, even for those who have no background in engineering and planning. Norconsult offers a wide range of 3D visualizations, and is actively working to further develop the use of this technology in the industry.

The training of innovation process managers started in 2010

Buildings The future of sustainable buildings requires development of integrated construction concepts. They will be both resource-efficient and of high quality. Smart solutions that satisfy both the external and internal environment are essential. A building is a complex structure with integrated sustainable technical solutions. The building should have energy efficient installations to ensure maximum energy utilization. It should also have functional design which meets users’ requirements, whilst enhancing the indoor environmental quality and taking into consideration the building’s surroundings. Today’s construction processes are hectic and demanding. They put great demands on the different parties’ ability to adapt. A number of different contracting models also include requirements for specific competence and a flexible organization. In addition, there are stringent demands on building owners to have in-depth knowledge and to implement applicable, technical and aesthetic qualities to their buildings. The resulting building environments must meet users’ needs while protecting the local community and follow public guidelines and requirements. Norconsult has been involved in designing and developing buildings for the future for a long time. We are also actively involved in R&D projects where we look at how to reduce energy consumption and energy-related greenhouse gas emissions from buildings.

Environment Climate consequences as a result of the world’s population growth, gives us a common challenge to balance the protection of nature and the environment while further developing our society. The increasing impact we make on the earth’s resources is a global challenge - and it must be solved. Challenges range from overall, global climate changes down to local measures for protection of local communities. The most important thing is to realize and understand long-term environmental consequences and impacts combined with today's actions and measures. All contributions are important to preserve natural resources and reduce emissions. The huge challenge for authorities, organizations and businesses is to ensure a balance between continued growth and social development with regard to nature and the environment. It requires knowledge of the activities involved, and of the environmental conditions that have to be regulated and controlled. Environmentally efficient utilization of resources, reduction of pollution of the outer environment and health impacts are in this respect key focus areas. Norconsult has over a long time built the experience and insight to ensure that all levels in today’s and tomorrow’s environmental challenges are met and resolved in a good way. A sound academic environmental expertise combined with comprehensive experience provide the conditions we need to conduct studies, analysis, action plans and development projects for a sustainable future.

Planning Society is in a constant state of change, therefore there are a variety of considerations, requirements and expectations that must be met. Planning is a complex discipline which includes development of varied locations and regions, requiring qualified insight and comprehensive oversight from the planners. Studies and plans must lead to sustainable solutions so the planners must take into account society's many facets; groups with different and sometimes conflicting agendas, the general public, landowners, developers and administrations. Societal planning also includes functional planning for specific areas such as business growth and changing demographics, climate and environmental considerations, urban development and other related issues. In order to address the many needs of the different interests, the core of planning is to have the overall perspective and the cross-disciplinary knowledge to create solid and long-term plans. Norconsult has been involved in and contributed to the development of societies for several years, worldwide. The company’s social scientists, geographers, architects, landscape architects and engineers combine excellent theoretical knowledge with reliable up-to-date practical experience.

Risk management Our constantly changing world becomes increasingly more complex, global and open day by day. This also increases the community’s vulnerability. Risk assessments, accident prevention and emergency preparedness are therefore becoming increasingly important elements for the society as a whole - from governmental authorities to the private sector. Exposure to increased risk and vulnerability to unwanted events is partly due to changing climatic conditions, increased technology dependency, structural changes in society and a change in local and international threats. This creates a need for professional assistance to get an overview of current threats and future vulnerability of own business. This entails primarily probability and consequence. Focus is on prevention and efforts to reduce the possibility that something will occur and also finding measures to reduce its impact. Norconsult has been involved in helping to create a safe and well-functioning society for a long time. Our advice and solutions provide the basis for ensuring active risk management. Managing risk requires thorough systemic insight, knowledge of relevant methods and focus on the operative measures.

Transport A well organized transportation infrastructure is a prerequisite for a society on the move. In a society where development of infrastructure and changes in utilization of land are naturals, long-term and flexible transportation solutions enhance and support growth. Transportation methods and volume are always influenced by social trends. Solutions must be adapted to the public, not harming the environment or the landscape. Various traffic user groups have different needs. It is a challenge to create safe and flexible transport solutions covering all forms of traffic and the different groups’ needs. Both population growth and global climate changes give the transport sector a special challenge and a special responsibility to develop solutions that contribute to reduced emissions. Simultaneously transport solutions must support community development and growth. Norconsult has for a long time been a major contributor in developing comprehensive plans that provide environmentally sound, aesthetic and cost effective transportation solutions. With a holistic approach, studies, analyses, calculations and plans for complete communications systems from idea to execution emerge with the additional effort to find new ways to minimize negative environmental impacts.

Water Water is the vital resource for creation of life and for living it well. Sustainable use of water resources must secure water supplies for future generations. To achieve this, the technical solutions have to take into account our growing environmental pressures, demographic changes and the result of the expected climate change. Our society is moving ahead. The development of infrastructure must support future population growth. This requires water and wastewater systems that optimize supply for industrial operations and the population, while emissions from wastewater should not harm the environment. The hydrological cycle must be protected, as supplying clean and sufficient water to everybody is a major challenge in the strive for sustainable development. Water resources are threatened by pollution, so monitoring water quality is therefore extremely important. Norconsult has for many years contributed to the development of safe water and wastewater systems. We have also adapted the systems for new and challenging climate changes. We are constantly working actively to build on experience and knowledge about the complete water cycle from rainfall via usage to drainage and evaporation.
