River Ericht Visitor Centre

New Blairgowrie Building

7N Architects have received detailed planning consent for a new visitor centre in Blairgowrie for the Blairgowrie and Rattray Regeneration Company (BARRC).

The new building, which will be built on the remains of a former mill on the banks of the River Ericht, will be the focus of the initial stage of BARRC’s town centre regeneration initiative creating a showcase for natural energy, the ecology of the river and local producers. The building will provide 350sq.m of flexible exhibition, cafe and retail space to draw passing visitors to dwell in the town and provide a multi-purpose resource for the local community.

The project, which is funded by the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Regeneration Fund, is planned to start on site in July 2010 with completion targeted for Spring 2011.

Ewan Anderson of 7N Architects said “It’s rare to be involved in a project which has been created from such a passionate community initiative. We’re delighted that it can now move forward to become a reality for them.
