A building at Nottingham Trent University’s Brackenhurst campus is having to be reconstructed after part of the structure broke away.
The campus at Brackenhurst Lane in Southwell, is currently having a £10m facelift including a new reception and environment centre, and is planned to be completed by September 2019.
A Nottingham Trent University spokesperson said: “Last week, during construction of the new reception and environment centre at our Brackenhurst Campus, our contractor noted some structural defects on the lecture theatre of the new Lyth building.
“The affected area of the site was cordoned off and, following advice, the decision was taken on Good Friday to remove the affected section of building.
“Demolition work has now been undertaken and an extended exclusion zone is expected to remain in place around the unoccupied building until further safety checks are completed.
“An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the defects.”
