The £48.5m Wick Community Campus built by Morrison Construction has been announced as a finalist at the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) Awards for Planning Excellence 2018.

The project is entered in the category for "Excellence in Planning for a Successful Economy" against eight other finalists from across the UK with the winner to be announced during a ceremony at Milton Court Concert Hall on 24 May 2018.

The project was designed by Ryder Architecture. The campus was opened to pupils in April 2017, replacing Wick High School, South Primary and Pultneytown Academy Primary School with a new library and swimming pool for pupils, teachers and the East Caithness community.

Wick High was nominated for a major award before winning Gold in the ‘Best Education Project‘ category at the 2015 Partnerships Awards.
