The prospect of a huge increase in rent after a faulty construction process will lead to the University of Copenhagen having to reduce more floor space than what the new Niels Bohr Building would have added.
The completion of the scandalised Niels Bohr complex on Jagtvej is a high priority for the project’s owner. Project Manager Jørn-Orla Bornhardt says that he - just like UCPH - wants researchers to bring home Nobel prizes in the laboratories that he is building.
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.

The delayed Niels Bohr Building at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH) has been constructed with major plumbing and ventilation system errors that will cost hundreds of millions of kroner. Employees at the construction site say they complained about the contractor at least one year before the government's agency responded to the problems.
The well-being of the law students who have just moved from the inner city won’t be helped by the rain coming into their new buildings on South Campus.
The Danish Building and Property Agency blames the now sacked subcontractor for the indefinite postponement of the DKK 1.6 billion Niels Bohr Building at the University of Copenhagen. UCPH director and dean predict that the delay will be costly.
After 45 years in Købmagergade, The Faculty of Theology is moving out of central Copenhagen. But changes are never easy, resulting in a mix of nostalgia and excitement.
