Canterbury Brewery chimney demolition underway

The final stage in the demolition of Christchurch's landmark Canterbury Brewery site on the corner of St Asaph and Antigua streets will commence this morning with the removal of the brewery's 35 meter chimney.

The Canterbury Brewery was deemed beyond repair after the February 2011 earthquake and ended an era that started with brewing on the site more than 130 years ago. When cleared, the site will eventually be replaced with the city's new inner-city Metro Sports Facility.

CeresNZ are the main contractors responsible for the overall demolition of the 17 buildings that made up the brewery. Company spokesperson, Bernie de Vere, says the chimney is the final structure to be removed and is being taken down in sections using a “cut and crane technique”.

The chimneys removal will start this morning at 9am and is expected to be completed by 1pm today.

Partial road closures will remain in the immediate vicinity until the site is completely cleared within the next few months.
