"We want input and ideas from the public to help create the new government building complex," says Minister of Local Government and Modernisation, Jan Tore Sanner. Work is to commence on designing the layout of the new complex. The government invites input on urban planning, traffic and public access.

"The government has decided on the choice of concept for the new complex. We want to create an area that is modern yet respects our history. We will create an open, living, safe urban area with the best working conditions," says Sanner.

The idea phase for the new complex will be executed in the form of a parallel project. Statsbygg issued an invitation to tender on Friday, 26 September and between four and seven teams will be selected to take part in the idea phase. Selection will be made in December and the project carried out through the winter of 2015. The proposals will be made public in May 2015.

"We need a wide range of ideas for a project as big as the government building complex on how it will look and be. The proposals will be published to encourage debate on the layout of the complex," says Sanner.

No winner will be declared in the idea phase, as the Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation and Statsbygg will be able to use the ideas as input for the ongoing process of drawing up the zoning plan.
