Interior demolition and strengthening refurbishment work has resumed on the old Farmers building site in Napier.
The site was closed down immediately after Hastings man Jeffrey McCulloch died as a result of being struck by a steel beam during reinforcement work mid-afternoon on May 15.
Mr McCulloch, 53, had been a foreman with Patton Engineering.
Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (formerly the Labour Department) officers and police had the area cordoned off while they carried out initial scene investigations.
A report into the accident is expected to take several months.
The refurbishment of the site is being carried out by Havelock North and Palmerston North-based Wallace Developments.
Company chief executive Jonathan Wallace said a blessing was held at the site last Friday and workers returned on Monday.
He said some who had worked there with Mr McCulloch did not want to return - a decision understood and respected by Patton and Wallace Development.
"It was the individuals' decision," Mr Wallace said.
The site is set to be subdivided into separate tenancies - five fronting Emerson St and one on Hastings St.
Six of the sites being developed have already been leased.
