Too much space in the new administrative Palace

It is a big, no, a huge box. Almost 400 million Swiss francs, has used the Federal in the last six years, at the Edge of the Bernese breitenrain quarter. In three buildings with a floor space of around 60,000 square meters, which is equivalent to about nine football fields. Never, the Federal office for buildings and logistics (BBL) has done a more expensive project.

The unique Dimension has been reflected in the Naming of three new buildings: they are called – in accordance to historical battles of the Swiss Confederation – Sempach, Morgarten and Laupen. To the address: Guisan fit place 1.

In this theme Park of the Swiss history to be related in the next months, around 2000 employees of the office of the attorney General, the Federal justice and police Department and the Federal office for defence Armasuisse their offices.


But, sounds to much, is for the Federal financial control. In 2017 published report, the Watchdog of the Federal government complained that the administration maintains the Guisanplatz1 far too generous dealing with the place. Economically, the intended usage was "not acceptable".

When the Parliament approved the 420-million-franc Loan, wrote to the Federal Council, it should be created at the guisanplatz 1 approximately 2700 jobs. This number screwed the competent Federal office after the start of construction even further, to 3200 jobs. The reason for this summarization: The real estate strategy of the Federal government determines that a per-standard work, the investment cost is higher than 120000 CHF. The adjustments to the BBL should ensure that this target value is reached.

Because at the Guisanplatz move in now but only around 2000 employees, the investment cost per capita is above 180000 francs. According to this type of calculation, the Federal government has invested about 100 million Swiss francs to a lot of in the administration of the campus.

The mismatch between the costs and Benefits of the financial delegation of Parliament's employees: "to Be considered, the cost per effective occupied workplace, so the efficiency is too low", stated in its annual report for 2017. In the Federal administration you can see this, however, is different. Various administrative departments have different space needs. "The law enforcement authorities due to their activities, specific requirements for premises," according to a spokesman. In short: you need more space.

their jobs could not be used as a website administration jobs, classified, because of specific needs such as interview rooms, command center, as well as a higher level of security, increase the space requirement. According to the measure of 120'000 francs investment cost per place was not also significantly. What is crucial is the capacity of the average jobs. These amounts in the new building continue to be 3200.

"Incorrect Information?"

For Albert Vitali, President of the Finance delegation and the FDP in the national Council, is this justification convincing. The Parliament had approved the construction Loan for the administration centre guisanplatz in the assumption that it would create 2700 Office space. The Federal government have, however, knew in 2012 that the law enforcement authorities of tenants with special space needs at the Guisanplatz move in. "For me, the question is: we Were informed at that time, incorrect, or incomplete?" In the autumn, the financial delegation will make the project Guisanplatz again.
