UHI Campus, Beechwood, Inverness, Highland IV2 5NB, UK
This free event will provide an
opportunity for built environmental professionals to visit the
evolving site of Inverness Campus - a multi-stakeholder location
for business, research and education. At this time the on-site
infrastructure will be almost complete so you will really get a
feel for how this will be a hub for collaboration, learning,
research and development.
HIE first announced plans in September
2009 to invest £25m over the following five years to create
Inverness Campus on the site of the former Beechwood Farm.
Phase 1 covers some 120 acres of the 215 acre site and comprises: a
new road access close to the A9 trunk road junction at Inshes;
internal 'shared surface' roads; footways and cycle paths;
installation of main services (foul and surface water sewerage,
water main, gas, electricity and telecommunications); extensive
parkland with hard and soft landscaping; public art,
including an island gallery in one of the several ornamental SUDS
(Sustainable Drainage System) ponds, along with a new cycle and
pedestrian bridge linking the new Campus to Inverness's Life
Sciences district and the city beyond.
