Bulldozers get ready for Craig More House

Bulldozers get ready for Craig More House

A demolition team is preparing to move into Craig More House at Dounreay.

The redundant three-story building, known as D9807, served as an office block until tenants Nuvia moved out last year.

It is now surplus to requirements.

Strip-out of the building is due to begin in September with the removal of asbestos. Demolition is scheduled for December.

Built of pre-cast concrete in 1961, the block has a floorspace in excess of 8000 sq ft.

More than 160 different facilities have been demolished so far during site decommissioning.

Demolition has averaged almost 100 sq ft a day since the formation of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority in 2005.
