A $17m redevelopment of the University of Otago's commerce building is getting under way.

The university finally decided to fix the building last October, following almost 100 complaints.

At least a dozen people have been seriously injured as a result of accidents in the building's atrium.

Work making the 25-year-old facility safer is expected to take a year.

The current roof, which isn't watertight, will be replaced.

More modern learning environments will also be developed.

Some classes are being relocated but staff will remain in the building throughout.
