the renovation of The Deutsches Museum will be much more expensive than planned. This is a must have to know the members of the science Committee in the Parliament on Wednesday during a visit to the Museum. Instead of the previously estimated 450 million euros, it is now of 598 million euros - a whopping increase of around a third.
That construction projects of this magnitude run out of the rudder, was not unusual, said Verena Osgyan of the Green to the non-public session. But that the science Ministry will inform the control body of the country tags "only excerpts", was not acceptable. "The citizens have a right to Information, the only way the rear can be used for this lighthouse in the Bavarian Museum landscape."
The total amount of 598 million euros, is confirmed by the management of the Museum, and that the costs of this development will be reported every quarter to the Ministry. The Museum is not a state, but is subject to as a public-Law institution, only the financial supervision by the Ministry. Robert Brannekämper (CSU), the Chairman of the Parliament Committee, and was a little surprised. "The building stock is always fraught with risks," he said. You've already found at the beginning of the renovation, such as crumbling of the concrete was in many Places, the need to move all the Blankets to meet the safety requirements.
It is the price development in the construction industry was added, and any delay suggest an enormous impact. "We do not reach, however, the Dimension of a Elbphilharmonie." And the rehabilitation of Berlin's Museum island, lying currently at 1.7 billion euros. Minister of science Bernd Sibler (CSU) said, the German Museum get on well with the restoration, and he was for some time with the Federal government in discussions to shoulder the challenges together.
the renovation of The Deutsches Museum, it was decided in 2011, after the Federal government and the country had said 180 million euros. A further 40 million won, the General Director Wolfgang Heckl by conveyor. About 50 million were added by other donations and reallocation of budgetary funds. Makes 450 Million. However, it quickly became clear that this sum would not, rich as it was originally intended, for the renewal of the whole ensemble, but in the best case, for the collection building. In the coming year, the first phase of construction is to be opened. By 2025 - to 100. Birthday of the house - should be the second section finished. If everything goes according to Plan.
