Unit OIL.1 has drawn up a forward programme
of building projects based on the information currently
available on the Commission’s workforce, in connection
with decisions on locating departments in Luxembourg and
with an eye to enlargement, and taking account of the
provisions regarding the allocation of office space (35
m² gross and 15m² net per person).The property files currently
under review and included in the forward plans and budget
estimates are as follows:
JEAN MONNET BUILDING (PROJECT JMO 1)
JEAN MONNET REPLACEMENT BUILDING (PROJECT JMO 2)
UPGRADING OF THE EUROFORUM BUILDING
BECH BUILDING: LEASE OF FOURTH FINGER
2. NEW BUILDINGS
In view of a possible move from the Wagner
building and of the extra needs following enlargement,
Unit OIL.1 has drawn up a document that specifies the
principal characteristics (areas and main functions) of
one or more buildings.
Four projects are being studied in parallel (Drosbach, H20, K2 and Goldbell2). They are located in the Cloche d'Or business park, to the south-east of the city, close to the Euroforum complex, except for the K2 complex, which is on the Kirchberg plateau.
3. INTERINSTITUTIONAL ASPECTS
Extension of CPE III
CPE IV – Temporary prefabs at the village pédagogique
CPE V – Social welfare infrastructure connected with the new European School
The future of the Foyer européen
Cooperation with the Court of Auditors (Project K1 - Renovation, Project K3, Project K8).
4. INVITATIONS TO TENDER
– The JMO 2 project will require considerable
technical assistance after the signing of the memorandum
of understanding. Specifications must therefore be drawn
up before launching the invitation to tender.
– Since 2004, OIL has no longer been able to ask the Legal Service to check contracts or amendments to contracts regarding property. It is obviously consulted in connection with CIS. A local legal firm was consulted under the contract of general technical assistance covering legal matters. At the request of the Legal Service, which no longer claims to deal only with disputes, and in order to take advantage of assistance provided when required, it is planned to launch a call for tenders in 2005.
would thus appear to be a year of transition where buildings
are concerned, as most files are either ongoing or in
the preparation phase. The major development questions
will probably involve the Jean Monnet (1 and 2) files
and the Data Centre, particularly those concerning the
negotiation of the memoranda of understanding with the
local authorities. It will also be important to keep track
of developments regarding the capacity of the social welfare
