A multi-storey office block will be blown up in quake-hit Christchurch’s first controlled demolition next month.

The controlled demolition, which has been approved by the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera), will be the first of its kind in the city since authorities began the massive task of bringing down the hundreds of quake-damaged buildings.
