Inverness Campus Golden Bridge in Place
C854a78e6e511c2b89e48ee61dd6d8a5

We’re very excited to see the Golden Bridge over the A9 lifted into its final position at Inverness Campus.


The bridge was designed by 7N as a key part of our masterplan for the Campus for Highlands and Islands Enterprise. It links the new Campus with adjacent neighbourhoods and the city centre, creating a confident, modern, gateway to Inverness.


It was conceived as a simple golden blade forming a slim, elegant, arc in the landscape that catches the unique light of the Highlands.


The 290 tonne structure was moved into position by contractors Morgan Sindall in its entire, 84 metre, span using specialist equipment to inch the bridge along the A9 and into position before bolting it to the landings on either side of the road.


The completion of a new bridge is always a special moment for those who designed and constructed it as it is a new civic landmark that makes a new connection between two places that didn’t previously exist.


We are delighted to be part of such a significant project for the Campus and Inverness.

Our Work - In May, 7N signed the Architect’s Declare open letter which has been signed by over 625 architectural practices. Signing the Architect’s Declare letter involves endorsing eleven ‘pledges’ which range from advocacy and raising awareness of climate and biodiversity emergencies, to significant changes in working practices around carbon modelling, resource use and knowledge sharing. Like many others, we have turned the lens on the operations of our practice and our projects to better understand where we can make a real difference and how meaningful changes can be advocated and realised. Our research will be shared in a sustainability focused blog series to document this journey, but to mark today’s day of climate action we’re offering some initial findings along with links to information others may find useful and interesting ; to read the full article, visit our Journal page - link in bio.
