Historic Building Demolished

Without the benefit of community consultation Lincoln University's historic McCaskill building has been demolished.

The structure has been unoccupied and fenced off as an "earthquake risk" for a decade.

Built in 1929 as the Laboratory Block of the 1880 College of Agriculture it was renamed in the 1960s to honour Professor Lancelot McCaskill (1900–85), one of the country’s most influential conservationists.
