One of the four wings is said to be below fire standards, in particular due to the type of flooring as well as the poor condition of the electrical installation in the false ceiling.

Part of the state-run international school Lycée Michel Lucius in Limpertsberg has been forced to close due to the substandard fire resistance conditions in the building.

It was shut with immediate effect on Tuesday afternoon, the ministries of sustainable development and infrastructure, education and public service, announced.

The building, known as 'wing 3000' is said to be below fire standards, in particular due to the type of flooring as well as the poor condition of the electrical installation in the false ceiling, which is said to "constitute a significant fire hazard".

Wing 3000 is one of four wings in the building and is the only one which has had to close.

In a statement issued by the ministries, temporary rooms will be available in another wing and in the former Ecole Française building in Limpertsberg after the half term holidays.

"The Public Buildings Administration will examine the possibilities for finding medium-term solutions that will fully meet the expectations of the school," the statement highlighted.

Ministers François Bausch, Claude Meisch and Dan Kersch informed the school on Tuesday afternoon. The school has informed staff, students and parents.
