Another one bites the dust as the demolition of the Grant Thornton building enters its final phase.

The Cathedral Square building was given a demolition notice by the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority last December after months of uncertainty about its future.

Demolition work started about four months ago and is expected to be completed within the next two months.

The building's owner, Emmons Developments New Zealand, is based in Singapore.

The Christchurch work force has relocated to Orchard Rd in Harewood.
