PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A Maine company has been hired to oversee the final stages of construction for a U.S. embassy near Oslo, Norway.

Tilson CEO Joshua Broder tells The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/24zqRDf ) that the Portland company started working on the $228 million project in January.

The company specializes in technologically complex projects. It was chosen by the embassy’s lead contractor and is Tilson’s first embassy project. Broder says it will involve 12 American workers.

The five-building embassy campus will incorporate elements of traditional Norwegian building design. Broder says the building will also be energy-efficient.

The project started in 2012 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
