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.

Please note lunch will not be provided.
