Justice Centre in Inverness, Scotland

A £23m justice centre in the Highland capital has been approved by planners, thus allowing the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service the green light to progress the build this Spring.

Inverness Justice Centre Building

Situated on Longman Road the V-shaped building will offer purpose-built accommodation for the service, enabling it to vacate its current home in Inverness Castle which will subsequently be turned into a tourist attraction.

Maggie’s Centres Buildings News

Neil Gillespie appeared on BBC Two’s Building Hope: The Maggie’s Centres TV programme last night featured all Maggie’s Centres.

Some filming – including by drone across the roof – at Maggie’s Lanarkshire, focused on the cooking (‘healthy’ fry-ups for the men!) and the sumptuous lightcatcher in the centre of the building.

Oriam, Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre

e-architect’s Isabelle Lomholt and Adrian Welch attended an opening event yesterday evening at Reiach and Hall Architects’ latest building, Oriam.

The concept was developed as a result of findings reported in the McLeish report into Scottish Football.

The aim is to provide our top sportsmen and women with the facilities, access and support services pivotal for successful performance on the international stage.

In 2012 the Scottish Government committed £25 m of funding and organisations were invited to bid to host and operate the centre.

Heriot-Watt University, in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council, were successful in their bid to host the new centre and worked with sportscotland and the partner sports to develop the design to ensure the creation of a world class performance facility.

Justice Centre in Inverness, Scotland

Images revealed of Inverness Justice Centre by Reiach & Hall architects:

Concept designs of the new justice centre building in Inverness have been unveiled ahead of a public consultation exhibition of the plans in the city’s Spectrum Centre.

Justice Centre Inverness

A pre-planning application has been submitted to Highland Council.

A two-storey building combining office space and courtroom accommodation will be shared by the justice organisations.

Inverness Justice Centre

The project is located at the former Stagecoach depot site between Longman Road and Burnett Road.

Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Justice Michael Matheson visited Inverness Castle yesterday for a preview of the public consultation exhibition.

These concept designs will be influenced by the feedback to the public exhibition. Once Highland Council planning committee’s consideration of the pre-planning application has been received by SCTS, and if supportive, the next step would be to submit an application for full planning permission.

Edinburgh architects practice Reiach & Hall win the £23m justice centre in Inverness.

Inverness Castle building

The project will see the city’s courts moved from their existing home in Inverness Castle, freeing up the historic building to be transformed into a tourist attraction – a separate job for which architects have yet to be appointed, reports Building Design.

Inverness Castle building

This Scottish architecture practice – Stirling Prize contenders – is at the early stage of design, ahead of a public consultation at the end of the month.

Project costs are estimated at £23 million. The money was approved by Scotland’s deputy first minister, John Swinney, when he was finance minister in 2015.

The new building is expected to be built on a former Stagecoach depot near the city’s Burnett Road police station after the sale of a previous site nearby fell through in May.

Justice Centre in Inverness – article in BD

The BBC reported in July 2016 that a potential site was being considered for a new justice centre in Inverness after plans to develop another location were dropped.

In May, the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service (SCTS) withdrew a conditional offer to purchase vacant land at the city’s Burnett Road.
It has now informed Highland Council of its interest in a former bus depot, also on Burnett Road.

SCTS said it remained committed to building a justice centre. The new centre would allow the courts service to move out of Inverness Castle, which would then be available for plans to turn it into a tourist attraction.

Maggies Lanarkshire – update 7 Jun 2011
At its heart, the design of the Maggies Centre at Monklands General Hospital is a tale of enclosed gardens, a linked sequence of external rooms perforating a low building that in turn acts as a mediator and connector between these sources of light and air. A brick wall binds the site enclosing this gathering of human scaled spaces, catching sunlight and creating sheltering places.
