Payment for works on adjustable items is considered part of the original contract, and is therefore invoiced on regular installment notes ("A-note")

Software designed for cost estimation of investment projects in the road sector. Estimation is based on the cost analysis being carried out by a group of people. The costing method is based on step-by-step costing according to the top-down principle: Each cost element is estimated by triple estimation - most likely cost, lowest and highest cost. The cost elements that contribute most to the uncertainty of the estimate are divided into smaller units which are then re-estimated until the overall uncertainty of the estimate is at an acceptable level. Owned in its entirety by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration. Trimble operates the solution for FK.

A management system for bridges, ferry quays and other load-bearing structures. The system contains information on all bridges on the national and county road network, including inspections with bridge condition. In the system, you can also enter descriptions of measures with costs, and plan when measures are to be carried out.
