Workers have begun dismantling a facade on a downtown Calgary building because of falling bricks.

The bricks tumbled down last week, eventually leaving an eight-by-four metre hole in the mid-20th century building at 608 Seventh Street S.W.

The city's chief building official Marco Civitarese determined on Monday that a brick facade needed to be taken down. The building is otherwise structurally sound.

Officials evacuated the building last week when the facade started crumbling. Crews erected heavy barricade walls made of stacked concrete blocks and shipping containers in case the wall continued to come down.
