Bus/Financial - Construction / Civil Engineering / Contract about railway contruction
Norwegian term or phrase: grensesnitt
Interface, is what you would think. However, here it seems to mean something to do with a specific point in time, a borderline?

Dersom bevilgningstakt medfører at Kontraktsarbeidet stoppes i ett år eller mer kan Byggherren foreta full avbestilling og Totalentreprenøren har rett til å heve Kontrakten. Ved slikt tilfelle skal partene i fellesskap finne frem til et fornuftig grensesnitt å avslutte Kontraktsarbeidet ved. Totalentreprenøren skal deretter snarlig fullføre den gjenstående del av Kontraktsarbeidet frem til dette grensesnitt.

Explanation:
This was my immediate response. The term is used in different contexts, and means just what you meant - a fixed point in time when something ceases to operate/changes dramatically. Here's one example: "9.13 Failure to Complete – this is a safeguard for the Employer if the Contractor fails to complete by the ‘Cut-Off Date’, allowing the Employer to terminate if the Contractor is seriously late."
