A scaffold suddenly gave way at the construction site of a cultural house project in Tuyen Hoa District under Quang Binh Province, north-central Vietnam on Sunday, leaving two workers injured.

The Tuyen Hoa District People’s Committee confirmed on the same day that the collapse happened while the project was underway.

The incident occurred at 11:00 am when some construction workers were laying concrete on the first floor.

The scaffold collapse deformed the structure.

The cultural house project was set to carry a price tag of VND50 billion (US$2.06 million), sourced from the state budget.

Work on the 2,700-square-meter project started in December last year.

The cultural house was designed to have two floors above the ground, and feature an auditorium capable of accommodating 400 people, a functional room, as well as other supporting components.

The project is being executed by a consortium of Quang Truong Consulting and Construction Company and Duc Thang Construction Company

Police in the province are investigating the cause of the collapse.
