The contract for the demolition of the earthquake-hit Clarendon Tower has been awarded, but the work will take over a year, it has been revealed.

Mainzeal Property and Construction has won the contract and will take possession of the 17-storey central Christchurch building on January 4.

The building's fate has been repeatedly delayed by disputes between the authorities, the building's owners and insurers.
