A massive section of Dunedin's former Cadbury building was ripped down in one fell swoop and contractors captured it on video.
Ceres NZ Ltd began demolition of the former warehouse building on May 7 and have made quick progress since then. They captured the wall facing St Andrew St being torn down by some specialised machinery yesterday.
The historic plant, which ceased making chocolate in Dunedin in March 2018, is to make way for the new $1.4 billion Dunedin Hospital.
Demolition work had been held up by Covid-19 safety restrictions.
The first building on the sprawling site to go is the former warehouse.
A Southern District Health Board spokesman earlier said demolition of the warehouse was expected to take a fortnight, and would be carried out in four stages.
