Contractor Kingerlee is expected to take possession of the site on Monday 22 August.
The first week will be spent preparing the site; disconnecting utilities, erecting hoardings around the buildings, and other activities to ensure safety and security for all concerned.
Demolition work will then commence on Tuesday 30 August and will be completed within a ten-week period.
That will then be followed by a two-week period for archaeological investigations which will finish at the end of November.
More details regarding the demolition process, contact information for the relevant Kingerlee personnel etc will be added here shortly.
