The addition marks the organisation's seventh hub, with existing teams working from offices in Denmark, Poland, Sweden, Czech Republic, Germany and the UK.
Aarsleff is by no means a new entrant to the country, having commenced its latest Norwegian contract with client Bane NOR, the government agency responsible for owning, maintaining, operating and developing the Norwegian railway network. Aarsleff has been subcontracted to perform the piling works for the Minnevika railway bridge - the longest railway bridge in Norway to date. This will require installing 280No. driven steel piles, with length up to 60m, and the construction of 17 cofferdams utilising 19m long sheet piles.
Aarsleff Norge's new office is located in Råde, a municipality in Østfold county, and from here Aarsleff will supply the general construction market with competences within ground engineering, such as precast and steel piling, sheet piling, large diameter drilling work, diaphragm walls and slurry walls, and anchoring works.
"Aarsleff already has extensive experience of working throughout Europe and it makes clear commercial sense for us to be extending our presence and ground engineering capabilities here," said Marianne Borup Jensen, Aarsleff's tender manager. "Having a dedicated team based in Norway means we are now extremely well-placed to deliver ground engineering services into the Norwegian market.
"We understand the importance of being visible and active in key markets, as local engagement is vital to build on reputations, develop client relations, and grow our business. I am confident that our experience, reputation and unwavering focus on health, safety, environmental issues, quality and engineering excellence, will see the company strengthen its position and secure a strong foothold in the Norwegian construction market."
