This course is for those who have experience with at least one Best Value project during one of the 4 phases as a vendor or client and want to demonstrate that they understand the Best Value philosophy and that you apply the Best Value approach correctly.
During this course we will focus on the Best Value process and philosophy and share, reflect, and learn from each other’s Best Value experiences and those of the A+ certified trainers. Throughout the course you will write a paper in which you reflect on the Best Value philosophy and process in preparation for the certification. The actual certification is not part of this course, but a separate and additional process were the certification board asses your personal metrics and paper. The final part of the certification process is an interview about your understanding of Best Value, your metrics, and your paper.

E18 Langangen – Rugtvedt
E18 Langangen – Rugtvedt is part of the E18 Langangen – Grimstad section, the project is 17 km long. We supported EIFAGE during the selection phase to win the tenders, during the clarification phase to get a signed contract and also during execution phase. Specific about this project, for us, was that we selected the key persons and trained them afterwards for the interview. Presently (December 2020) in the clarification phase.
E6 Moelv – Roterud
The project includes a main bridge over Lake Mjøsa and an 11km section of a four-lane motorway. The bridge will be the world’s longest structural timber crossing and set a benchmark for the use of sustainable materials in major infrastructure projects, according to a statement from BESIX. Specific for this project was to ‘translate’ the picture of the bridge into winning text. It was our first project in Norway with a non Norwegian contractor.
E6 Kvithammer – Åsen
Construction of a 19 kilometer motorway from Kvithammar to Åsen. The section is being built as a four-lane motorway with a speed limit of 110 km / h. The project includes four tunnels, all with double tunnels. One of them is the Forbordsfjell tunnel, which with its 7.8 km will be Central Norway’s longest tunnel. This was our 3rd project we supported Hæhre in getting selected for the clarification phase.
E6 Kvål – Melhus
The contract with Peab and Cowi is the first to be implemented as Integrated Project Delivery (IPL) in Nye Veier, and it is completely new in Norwegian road construction. The contract form means that the client, contractor and consultant develops a binding, trust-based community that will work for the best for the project in all phases in an open form of work with open calculations, incentive model and shared risk.
