New lease of life for Inverness building after £1.8m upgrade
A city centre building owned by the Inverness Common Good Fund is now fully let after extensive refurbishment and investment of £1.8 million.
Highland and Islands Student Association collected the keys to the third floor at 1-5 Church Street, joining Skills Development Scotland who occupy the ground, mezzanine and 1st floor and Pearson Vue who lease the second floor.
The project to refurbish the building included stripping it down to a concrete shell, creating an attractive new façade, internal works to create modern office spaces and the installation of a new lift.
Inverness Provost Helen Carmichael said: “The common good fund investment into this building has created much-needed modern high-quality office accommodation in the heart of Inverness and it is great to see the building in full use which also supports attracting footfall into the city centre.”
