Entrepreneur organisation, Bygg og Anlegg,carried out the survey in Hordaland and Sogn og Fjordane, but believe the figures apply to the whole country, NRK news reported.

‘’The increase in the number of thefts and actually the extent of the thefts is increasing, so for the construction industry it has become a problem’’
