- By becoming part of Norconsult, we get the opportunity to develop ourselves and our employees as part of a large Nordic group with broad expertise in all architecture and engineering disciplines. At the same time, we can retain and further develop our unique culture, which is about entering into challenges head-on and solving problems as we go. Djerving and Norconsult are a good match and complement each other's expertise very well. We both have a sharp eye for effective solutions, says general manager of Djerving, Rune Moen.

Today, we have a solid position in the Nordic buildings and real estate market, both in the design of new buildings and rehabilitation projects. Djerving's cutting-edge expertise in construction technology and design of site-built and prefabricated support systems in steel and concrete gives us the opportunity to together strengthening our footprint, especially in the Oslo region and in Eastern Norway, says Executive Vice President of Norconsult's Head Office, Bård Sverre Hernes.
