Deconstruction underwayThis post was written by Tom Burke on November 29, 2016
61 Molesworth Street is coming down and the surrounding building occupants will be hoping it’s real soon so they can get back to work. Media reports initially estimated a 2 week time-frame for the job which was optimistic to say the least. Due to asbestos concerns and Wellington high winds, the deconstruction will have to be done carefully and thus will take some time. There appears to be little surrounding area for the “scrap” to be piled high in the meantime, so a constant flow of large trucks to take the “scrap”away will be necessary. My guess is if they manage to get a clear site by Christmas it will be a job well done.
