The project encompassed the demolition of the old buildings, as well as planning, financing, construction and operation of the new 'Zeughausareal'.
This includes three planning units, a prison (110 beds), a street inspection office including an operation centre and finally an administration centre. The total area of the new 'Zeughausareal' is approximately 30,000 m2.
Hälg Facility Management AG operates the new facility, and operations will be carried out for a period of 25 years. The client Canton Berne has reserved the right to extend the operation phase for an additional five years.
The process was managed by BAM PPP working very closely with our colleagues at BAM Deutschland AG and our Swiss project partner Marti Generalunternehmung AG.
