As a building commissioner, Statsbygg plans, quality assures, budgets and follows up construction projects.
However, the actual design and construction of buildings is implemented by independent architects, engineering companies and construction companies. More than 90% of costs relating to new buildings derive from purchased services resulting from competitive tendering.
At any given time, Statsbygg organises, plans and implements around 120 projects – large and small – of which 20-30 major projects are completed every year.
In total Statsbygg’s annual building budget is approx. 5,4 billion Norwegian kroner, NOK (2016).
