Works are progressing at Inverness Creative Academy, with the Phase 2 refurbishment works now well under way. The external scaffold is complete, allowing critical roof repairs to commence, as well as the restoration of the existing stone walls. A scaffold is now being erected in the main hall to allow works to be carried out from both inside and outside to repair and protect the building. The internal strip-out is now complete, meaning the contractor can begin fitting out the former classrooms to form new inspiring workspaces for creative industries.

Bancon Construction recently held a “Meet the Contractor” evening where several members of the local community visited us in the Phase 1 building to ask questions and find out more about the works. The evening was a great success and it was wonderful to hear how positive the community feels about Wasps, the Midmills building, and our contractor!

Please contact us with any queries about the project. You can contact Wasps with your enquiry:

We are currently fundraising for this final phase which will complete Wasps’ vision to deliver a vibrant creative destination to serve the whole of the Highlands. We have secured most of the money to complete our Midmills transformation, but must raise a final £500,000 to reach our overall target.

If you would like to find out more about supporting the transformation of Midmills, please contact Claire English, Wasps Funding and Partnerships Manager on 0141 553 5890 or email
