The demolition process, which started in November, has already seen onsite contractors undertaking work to prepare the site including; removing asbestos, taking out fixtures and fittings and disconnecting utilities. Contractors are also due to take down the link to the Magistrates Court and put in ramps and new entrance points to retain access to the site.
The adjoining Magistrates Court, which has recently been used for Heritage Action Zone history open days, will not be part of the demolition.
The demolition will be filmed from a time lapse camera to showcase the process of demolishing the six-story building over the next few months.
Walliscote Place is part of the Weston Town Centre Regeneration Programme which is delivering improvements to key sites within the town and encouraging inward investment.
