First phase of major works completed at Inverness High
Pupils and staff at Inverness High school are celebrating the completion of the first phase of works of their newly refurbished building this week. The challenging refurbishment project is being managed by the in-house Property Team in Development & Infrastructure.
The total planned investment at Inverness High is £14.7M through the Council’s capital programme, with support from the Scottish Government’s investment programme (Scotland’s Schools for the Future) managed by Scottish Futures Trust.
The Highland Council is very pleased to have received 14 classrooms officially handed over from Morrison Construction on Tuesday 30 October along with offices and a brand new state-of-the-art biomass energy centre.
Cllr Andrew Baxter, Chair of the Highland Council’s Care, Learning and Housing Committee, welcomed the official handover.
He said: “This is a major milestone in the Council’s programme of refurbishment and renovation of Highland schools. Inverness High School, although an iconic design of its time, was not fully fit for 21st Century education and these works are directly helping to provide a better school that supports our children to have the best start in life.”
Construction works continue into the next phase of refurbishment to improve the condition and suitability of the whole building for an anticipated completion by March 2020.
