Preserving infrastructure for a better future
What we do
Extending the lifetime and quality of infrastructure is vital for future generations when it comes to the environmental challenges we’re facing. Our mission is to preserve old and forthcoming infrastructure to contribute to a more sustainable future.
We all have a responsibility to take care of the world. By developing sustainable solutions we believe we can benefit the world we live in, for this and future generations.
Birdsview was founded in 2017 by Olav Skogen and Simen Husøy while they were students at NTNU. Birdsview began developing technology targeting the rot in the wooden poles of the power grid. Since then, we have expanded our ambition to encompass the preservation of infrastructure for the future.
We have now grown into a multidisciplinary team of 8 full-time employees. In recent years, we’ve also had periods with part-time students and summer interns. In 2021 the company moved from Trondheim and is now based in Bergen. We’re excited to see where our journey will lead us!
