With a shared office building for several of the municipality’s administrative functions, Uppsala Municipality wants to generate increased communication between employees and units.
Lokföraren is the name of Uppsala Municipality’s new office building, shared by several relocated administrative functions. The building houses units for urban development, nursing and care services and culture, among others. The office was one element of a larger organisational overhaul for the purpose of creating efficiency and transparency in relation to the wider community. Tengbom was responsible for the interior design, and the interior furnishings were procured, coordinated and supplied by Input interior.
The new committees, like the cultural centre, have been formulated to deliver an enhanced process based on citizens’ and users’ perspectives. The aim is to stimulate increased communication between employees and units, clear reorganisation without rebuilding, reducing the municipality’s environmental impact, attracting new manpower and offering a good work environment for existing employees.
