Inverness Royal Academy plans go on show
Plans for a £34m new build Inverness Royal Academy are to be shown off for the first time at a public drop in exhibition hosted by Highland Council.

This will see the existing Academy replaced with a suite of new buildings; expanding capacity from 1,153 pupils to a roll of 1,420 whilst also providing a games hall, dance studio, gymnasium and pitches for community use during evenings and weekends.

Designed by JM Architects the project will also entail a doubling of Additional Support Needs accommodation.

A spokesman for Highland Council said: “This is an opportunity for anyone to comment on the current proposals before applications are made.”

The exhibition will take place between 15:00 and 19:00 on 11 September at the Culduthel Christian Centre and will afford attendees an opportunity to take part in a pre-application consultation which closes on 11 November.

The exterior looks like any educational building built in the 1960-70's, so I hope that the architects have made the interior be fully functional as the exterior is distinctly poor.

@Bill - I am not being harsh, I am being truthful. The exterior design is poor and it will look terrible in a few years.

Google:
Alan Glenn campus/school
University of St.Andrews Students Union
North Haugh
University of Stirling (prior to wholesale demolition)

I could add many more but they have already been demolished...poor design = poor return if investment.
