Lochaber Sports Hub

Sport & Tourism, Sustainable Architecture

Working with Douglas Wheeler Associates and Lochaber Sports Association we examined the current sports provision in Fort William and Lochaber, in particular the need for all-weather training facilities. Finding a need for indoor training and more 3G pitches, we considered a number of potential sites, cost and design of a new facility. We recommended that a community sports hub should be developed at Lochaber High School, expanding on the excellent new facilities recently completed there. New training facilities for the school, clubs and community would include re-covering the old astroturf pitch in a 3G surface suitable for rugby, shinty and football, and a further indoor facility with a 60m x 40m pitch of the same turf as well as showering, changing and meeting areas accessible by all.
