Presenting their report, Thursday, the committee believes four buildings should be demolished. This includes Akersgata 42’s devastated H-block that contained the Office of the Prime Minister and the former Ministry of Justice and the Police.

The advisors also moved for demolishing buildings R4 and S – the Ministries of Petroleum and Energy and Trade and Industry, and the Map of the Government Offices and surrounding area

“We’ve not viewed preserving H-Block as being socioeconomically viable the way it is now,” stated consulting company Metier’s Svein Olausen at today’s press conference.

“We’ve concluded that both R4 and S-block should be replaced with new buildings anyway. The site is not being utilised properly as it is, and there will be major gains by constructing new buildings,” added Mr Olausen.

Minister of Government Administration, Reform, and Church Affairs Rigmor Aasrud, who visited H-block just under three months following terrorist Anders Behring Breivik’s attacks, told NRK afterwards some of what the advisors presented came as a surprise to her.

“There were suggestions and opportunities here that I had not thought of before,” the Minister commented.

G-block (the Ministry of Finance), and other governmental buildings R5, R6, and T5 are recommended kept.
