NORR was appointed by Robertson Construction Northern to design a large extension to the existing Merkinch Primary School in Inverness, Scotland. Originally built in 1876, the primary goal was to future-proof the building for generations of students using sustainable methods of construction. The 11,000 square-foot contemporary extension was designed as a state-of-the-art educational facility that paid respect to the original Category B listed Victorian school.
