Work In Progress

Space Hub Sutherland

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) appointed NORR in March 2019 to lead the design of its new Space Hub facility in Sutherland, Scotland. Along with our sub-consultants ARUP and ERZ, we are working towards the submission of the Planning Application in February 2020.

Development agency Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) is leading the £17.5m Space Hub Sutherland project, including a £2.5m grant from the UK Space Agency (UKSA).

Kevin Stephen, lead architect for NORR said “The Space Hub project is exciting, as well as complex and sensitive. The integration of a vertical small satellite launch facility, with associated infrastructure into this rural and naturally significant site, presents many interesting challenges for us; the sort of challenges we thrive on.”

Roy Kirk, Space Hub Sutherland project director, said “This is a key step in the development of Space Hub Sutherland. This is a high profile, complex and innovative project that we expect to generate many social and economic benefits for different parts of the region, including around 400 new well-paid skilled jobs.
