WATCH: Sea Malta’s Marsa building in danger of collapsing, now being demolished

Demolition work started this morning on parts of the building which had formerly housed the Sea Malta company offices in Marsa, in order to remove dangerous structures which were in danger of collapsing.

Enemalta said in a statement that in recent years parts of this building in Flagstone Wharf, on the inner part of Grand Harbour, were being used for warehousing.  Other structures in this building, however, had been left in a bad state for a number of years.

These structures had been constructed on metal piles which rested on the sea bottom. After suffering years of erosion, these foundations are now giving way.

Earlier this month the company architect, in collaboration with the Planning Authority, identified parts of this building which were at risk of collapsing onto other nearby properties or into the sea.

Demolition work on these structures started today, and is to continue in the coming weeks. Enemalta stated that a number of measures are being taken to reduce problems caused by noise and dust, as well as the inconvenience to residents and businesses in the vicinity.

Once the dangerous structures are removed, Enemalta  says it will continue with further studies to verify the stability of the building and consider its best use for the coming years.
