Great Glen House
Great Glen House, Inverness is the headquarters of Scottish Natural Heritage.

Great Glen House was built by Robertson Northern on a site developed by Robertson Property. Everyone involved with this building knew that it would be a special building. However, none expected it to be quite as special.
To date the building has won a total of ten awards, including the much coveted BREAMM excellent award - it scored 84%. At the time this score was the highest ever achieved by any office building anywhere in the UK. This score has only recently been surpassed.
