Demolition work has started on part of Lower Hutt's old civic administration building as part of Hutt City Council's $37.5 million Civic Centre upgrade.

The council's administration building has been gutted, and demolition of the west wing of the building began during the weekend.

Council infrastructure general manager Bruce Sherlock said the project to strengthen and refurbish the council's administration building and demolish the west wing was costing $21m.

This part of the project should be completed in early 2016.

A separate $16.5m project to upgrade the adjoining Town Hall, demolish the Horticultural Hall and build a new events centre was scheduled to start next year and be completed by April 2016.

Council staff were moved out of the civic administration building earlier this year and are based in the former Levene's building in High St while work is completed.
