The owner of Statistic New Zealand's Wellington home has confirmed damage to two floors of the recently completed building. CentrePort, which owns Statistics House, says yesterday's earthquake caused "localised damage" to two floors on the northwest corner of the building. In a statement, CEO Derek Nind said: "A small part of the ceiling on the ground floor and the first floor have partially dislodged after two concrete beams became separated from the exterior wall of the building." Ceiling panelling can be seen strewn across the bottom level of the building, which is one of the newest in the city. Wires can also be seen dangling from the ceiling on the first level. The building houses about 500 Statistics NZ staff as well as employees from other government departments.
