Design team chosen as Sutherland Spaceport fires up
March 29 2019
A design team comprising Norr Architects, ERZ landscape architects and Arup has been selected by Highlands & Islands Enterprise to bring forward detailed plans for an £18.5m spaceport in Sutherland.
Space Hub Sutherland is backed bv the UK Space Agency who have selected a site at Melness on the remote Moine Peninsula, for the vertical launch facility.
Kevin Stephen, lead architect at NORR, said “The space hub project is exciting, as well as complex and sensitive.
"The integration of a vertical small satellite launch facility, with associated infrastructure into this rural and naturally significant site, presents many interesting challenges for us; the sort of challenge we thrive on. We look forward to getting started.”
Detailed designs will be finalised later this summer to enable construction to proceed in spring 2020.
