Work on the £1.2 million Joint Cadet Centre (JCC) in Dingwall is progressing.

The project will extend the existing 1st Battalion The Highlanders Army Cadet Force (ACF) building, enabling it to become a facility shared with young people and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers (CFAVs) from the Royal Air Force Air Cadets (RAFAC).

The extension will add two classrooms, two offices and two storerooms. Work to concrete foundations on top of the nine metre piles needed to support the extension (due to the site being below the water table) has been completed. Flat pack extension walls have also been delivered to the site.

Dundee-based architecture and interior design firm Andrew Black Design will deliver the project. Earlier this year the firm signed the Armed Forces Covenant. It has also received the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Bronze Award.

The project is due for completion in August.
