The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) recently selected Trimble's AgileAssets, an infrastructure enterprise asset management software to maintain, manage, and operate the country's 10,600-kilometer road network and related transportation infrastructure. The software complements Trimble's Quadri®, a building information modeling (BIM) collaboration solution, which utilizes cloud technology that the NPRA already employs for construction projects.
As Norway's road network becomes more complex, the combination of Trimble's Quadri and AgileAssets, will empower NPRA to meet the increasing demands by leveraging connected data to improve asset lifecycle performance, from conception and building to operations and maintenance.
Bjørn Laksforsmo, division director at NPRA, states, "Trimble has been heavily involved in the road design and construction process in Norway for years and is a trusted partner in our digital transformation." He added, "Efficiently maintaining our road network and related assets is critical for keeping our citizens safe, maximizing the benefits from our infrastructure investments and meeting the country's evolving mobility needs. With a holistic, lifecycle view of assets and as-built data, we can more efficiently perform preventive maintenance and make better-informed decisions for all of our assets as we plan for the future."

NPRA’s asset lifecycle management requirement is based on the necessity that all new projects utilize constructible models and a shared data environment. To improve the flow of real-time data across project stakeholders, NPRA started using Trimble's Quadri, which offered constructible models as well as object-based common data environment. Using Trimble's AgileAssets to extend that data to the maintenance and operations phases will provide NPRA with a holistic view of assets, offering a better picture of road objects and conditions for more precise diagnosis and faster maintenance.
Integrating Trimble's common data environment and asset management software will also increase the usefulness and accuracy of data throughout the asset's lifecycle, resulting in greater predictability, sustainability, and lower lifetime costs and informing future expansion and improvement decisions.
