Highland academy under way
Work on the new Inverness Royal Academy is progressing on schedule with steelwork erection expected to begin in April.
Said to be the largest school in the Highlands, the £34M project will see a new 1,420-pupil school built next to the existing buildings.
Overall the new four-storey school will have 80 classrooms, two games halls, a fitness suite, dance studio, gymnasium as well as a variety of outdoor sports facilities.
“The new school build is a huge investment and a major boost to the local community and economy. It will also provide major support for the further development of gaelic education and improved provision for pupils with additional support needs,” said Councillor Alasdair Christie, Chair of Inverness Council’s Education, Children and Adult Services Committee.
Main contractor for the project is Galliford Try, and the steel contractor is BHC.
