Boyack calls for wider implementation of energy efficient design
Great Glen House, Inverness headquarters of Scottish Natural Heritage, has received a visit from MSP Sarah Boyack.

Boyack, touring the facility in her guise as Deputy Convenor of the cross party group on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, was looking to see how design techniques emplyed there could be: “more widely implemented as standard practice rather than being seen as exceptional”.

Completed in 2006 by Keppie Design the £12m building comprises just under 6,700sq/m of open plan, energy efficient, office space. Despite being completed two and a half years ago the technology and techniques developed here are still not widely employed.

Central to the design of the hq is a feature atrium directing views out of the building to both connect with the surrounding landscape and draw in copious natural light.
