Artists impression of the Plock Hub Building.
Plock Hub Building
A major infrastructural project identified by the Plock Masterplan was to create a Hub building that would provide recreational facilities such as toilets and a café as well as a multipurpose room and some office space for KLCT. The Hub is seen as an essential infrastructure that would support many of the other projects planned at the Plock.
We are currently working with Dualchas Architects to design this building and surrounding infrastructure. As part of this process we have also carried out specialist assessments such as an otter survey & mitigation measures, transport assessment and a drainage assessment. Keeping in theme with the Viking Living Village which we are hoping to set up at the Plock, the Hub building will have elements styled on Viking heritage.
You can view initial designs presented to our community in Autumn 2019. Final drafts are now ready to be presented to the community for further comments, however the community consultation has been postponed due to Covid-19. Once the consultation is completed, our architects will finalise the designs and apply for a planning permission.
Time frame: February 2019 – ongoing
Funding: £29,258 (design stage – up to RIBA stage 3)
Funders: Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Highland Council, Kyle & Lochalsh Community Trust
