Fairhurst was commissioned by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to develop the Phase 1 Infrastructure for the proposed Inverness Campus site, which is located on a prominent 120 acre site just east of the city centre.
The Campus facility is being promoted by Highlands and Islands Enteprise to develop a regional centre for life long learning and higher education. The aim is to create “a multi-stakeholder academic, research and business park that will deliver significant benefits.”
As part of the Phase 1 works Fairhurst designed a range of infrastructure to serve the site to facilitate the development of individual plots. The works include: –
As lead consultant Fairhurst was responsible for managing and coordinating the multi-disciplinary design team to ensure the infrastructure design is in accordance with the programme and within budget, and for obtaining the appropriate third party consents and approvals. Construction works have started on site.
