A new report estimates that the new government quarter’s price in Oslo could reach up to NOK 36.5 billion.
The analysis was part of a new quality assurance report prepared by Dovre Group and the Department of Transport Economics on behalf of the government.
It shows that the new government quarter’s total costs will be between NOK 26.1 and 36.5 billion.
The primary estimate is a price of NOK 31.3 billion.
Newspaper Aftenposten was the first to mention the report.
“The project’s size, duration, complexity, and special stakeholder picture contribute to great uncertainty. The project is probably more demanding than any project Statsbygg has carried out before,” the report stated.
Finalization expected in 2029
Construction phase 1, which includes the construction of the A and D blocks, basement, Ring 1, and perimeter protection, as well as the rehabilitation of the H block and M19, is expected to account for the majority of the costs totaling NOK 17.2 billion.
It is expected that the construction within phase 1 will be able to start next year.
In total, there are three construction stages. Construction is expected to be completed in 2029.
The government quarter was severely damaged in the July 22, 2011, terrorist attacks.
