Every capital around the world has its own distinctive attractions and national symbols such as a Parliamentary building, a university and museums. In Oslo, the Norwegian national planning authority, Statsbygg, is currently planning for the very first time to gather the nations’ most extensive collections of art, architecture and design in one central location.
The size, location and combined functionality of the new building will create a totally unique arena for art and for the public. The new National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design (Nationalmuseet) will be one of the largest cultural buildings in the Oslo area.
Experience with cultural buildings
A Ramboll team was chosen as engineering consultants to turn the winning design into reality within the areas of structural engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, fire & safety, acoustics and geotechnics. Part of the team was a group of Ramboll experts with experience from other cultural buildings such as Tate Modern, the opera houses in Denmark and Norway, The British Museum and Royal Festival Hall in London. This experience together with our leading Building Information Modelling (BIM) expertise made us the preferred engineering partner.
