The Neumatt Administration Centre becomes operational

As from the 28th of April 2012 thousands of visitors streamed through the premises of the new administrative centre in Burgdorf, the regional prison stands in the middle of it… when can you ever visit a prison without having broken the law first? After a quick but voluntary visit to a cell there is still so much more to experience. A look into your own tax return, talks with a judge and the atmosphere of a festival outside on the grounds. The Canton of Bern had extended an invitation to what turned out to be a very successful event.

The official inauguration with the handing over of the key took place on the 26th of April 2012. Government representatives Barbara Egger-Jenzer and Hans-Jürg Käser placed particular emphasis on the opening of probably the most modern prison in the Canton of Bern and greater involvement from the public thanks to the concentration of the various departments.

The Joint Venture, consisting of the general contractors BAM and Marti, can look back with pride over the last 30 months. The new administration building was completed on time and with no cost overruns. We are pleased to have yet another happy customer.

Project in brief
The first PPP project in Switzerland “Neumatt – Cantonal Administration Centre Burgdorf” is being carried out by a consortium of Marti construction companies and Royal BAM. The redevelopment of the arsenal site involves the demolition of existing structures as well as the planning, financing, construction and operation of the new complex. The new regional prison with 110 places, four administration buildings and the Highway/Civil Engineering Department incl. maintenance depot are to be constructed on the site. The Canton of Bern will amortise the project volume in stages from the time of occupation of the building. Hälg Facility Management AG will be responsible for operation of the facility for a period of 25 years.
