After budget overruns on the scale of billions of kroner for the Niels Bohr Building and the Maersk Tower, a new major construction task towers up on the horizon. Now the University of Copenhagen's new Natural History Museum of Denmark is to be excavated in the middle of the capital city. Is this at all possible on budget? Yes, says the government’s new building contractor. Perhaps, says a construction researcher.
The University of Copenhagen is likely to have to pay a substantial rent increase on the Niels Bohr Building from government after construction delays and a cost overrun of at least DKK 1.3 billion. Minister for Higher Education and Research Søren Pind will not guarantee that the university will not have extra costs.
