The roof of the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) Headquarters in Ang Mo Kio gave way on Tuesday (Nov 10) during a downpour.

An ITE spokesman on Wednesday said the incident was the result of a roof pump malfunctioning, causing rainwater to accumulate on the “bubble fly roof” and the roof to crater.

“Under the weight of the rainwater, a part of the roof’s bubble membrane gave way and water flowed to Level 1 of Block A,” he said, according to a online report.

Videos and photos of the incident were circulated on social media on Wednesday and Thursday.
