A familiar South Nowra sight is slowing disappearing.
Piece by piece - bit by bit the Bunnings Warehouse's Princes Highway building is being demolished to make way for a new $27.8 million complex.
The building is a shell of its former self and only a small section of the familiar green metal walls remain.
Recycling and reuse are themes of the work.
"The concrete walls from the perimeter of the building are being crushed down and reused on-site as a sub-base under the new pavements in the existing car park," Garry James, Bunnings Acting General Manager, Property said
"The structural steel frames and the external wall and roof sheeting will also be sent to metal recyclers."

Meanwhile, the complex's footprint will grow by almost two-and-a half-times its current size.
It is set to expand from the current gross floor area of 6,248 square metres to 14,130 square metres and will open in late 2020.
Parking to be extended from the current 225 spaces to 428 spaces.
Bunnings, in the meantime, moved to the former and previously unopened Masters' site in South Nowra on the highway.
