26 April 2017 – UPDATE 1
Wellington City Council’s (WCC) Recovery/Resilience Team
Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO)
Deconstruction work has been delayed on Revera House for the following reasons
Approvals are still needed from the owners of the GCSB building, Old St Paul’s and the Cook Islands High Commission building for the necessary encroachment on to their property to deconstruct Revera House.
Class B asbestos has been found in two test results returned to the owners. This type of asbestos is included within other material in the building. This has been notified to the Wellington City Council (WCC) as well as Work Safe and will need to be noted in the Building Consent submitted to the Council by the building owners before any approval is given to decommission the building.
From the date of the meeting it was estimated that work would not start for another 6 – 8 weeks (late June or early July).
