Inverness Campus approved
November 3 2011
Developed by Highlands & Islands Enterprise and masterplanned by 7N Architects the campus will provide a new home for Inverness College, UHI, the Scottish Agricultural College, Centre for Health Science, a training hotel and sports and community facilities.
The completed estate will bring together housing education, research and business outlets within a single environment dominated by a 'market square'. This is an enclosed space framed by academic buildings with a canopy flowing overhead.
Ruaraidh MacNeil, Inverness Campus Project Director at HIE, said: “HIE is investing £25 million in developing the infrastructure for phase 1, which will bring a wealth of benefits to the Highlands and Islands. It will attract businesses and investment, provide further educational opportunities for young people and act as a magnet for talent.
“It will also be a development for the local community, with green space, sports and recreational facilities open for all to use. We plan to continue working closely with the community as we develop further plans.”
Work will commence on site early in the New Year with the initial buildings completing in early 2015.
A viewpoint in the central hub will offer spectacular views out to the Kessock Bridge and Ben Nevis beyond
