The new square on South Campus is best described as a perfect, trash and graffiti free love child between Teletubbie Land and a computer-generated architect’s model.
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. Now the University of Copenhagen's new Natural History Museum of Denmark is to be excavated in the middle of the capital city. Is this at all possible on budget? Yes, says the government’s new building contractor. Perhaps, says a construction researcher.
The Danish Building and Property Agency has been removed from the scandalous Niels Bohr Building project. The director resigns from the project. Management of the project has been inadequate, according to a report. Minister says that UCPH does not have to pay the largest part of extra costs.
The government now recognizes that the delayed Niels Bohr Building will cost at least 10 per cent more than budgeted – an extra bill that will end up being paid by the University of Copenhagen (UCPH). Unions criticize the government property agency for not learning from its mistakes and for using a cheap construction company
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.
Sparet er tjent. Især hvis man kan leje det sparede ud for fire mio. kroner. Nordisk Forskningsinstitut er nødt til at rykke ud og prøve på at få kommercielle virksomheder ind på to af deres etager på Søndre campus som en del af en spareplan på i alt ni mio. kroner.
