A central Christchurch building will be demolished by implosion next month.

The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority has approved the implosion of the 14-storey Radio Network House building in Worcester St.

The building was deemed unsafe after the February 2011 earthquake.

Workers have started removing cladding from the southern façade of the building.

This will be the first demolition by implosion in the city since the quake demolitions began. It will take place on Sunday, August 5.

More details on how the implosion will be carried out will be released tomorrow morning.
