Perth College take keys to new Academy of Sport and Wellbeing
Perth College, part of the University of the Highlands and Islands, has taken possession of a £7m Academy of Sport and Wellbeing housing a range of facilities from a sports hall and fitness studios to a beauty salon and climbing centre.

Delivered by Dixons Contractors and Keppie Design (with initial design work by Clague) the project centres on a double height, 42m x 28m multi-use games hall with a spectator capacity of 400.

Jackie MacKenzie, the college’s vice principal finance and estates, said, “We have a fantastic new facility that was delivered on time and within budget. Dixons Contractors demonstrated a real commitment to working in partnership with the college, listened to us and were proactive in offering suggestions and professional advice. The team delivered everything they promised and more. It has hugely contributed to the Perth area, enabling an expansion in our curriculum and providing educational facilities for many, from school groups to Masters and PhD students.”


The design and build project went from conception to delivery in a little over a year.
The facility includes the first climbing centre to be built in the Perth & Kinross region
