The 220,000 sq ft campus will focus on science and engineering with advanced level courses in computing, construction and sport and be home to 2,000 students
A key element of the project is the inclusion of a new purpose designed arts centre, developed in conjunction with Falkirk Council and Falkirk Community Trust.
This new facility will provide a 500 seat multi-purpose venue for performing arts and conferencing and will also provide a wide range of collaborative opportunities and benefits for college and art centre alike.
Balfour utilised a range of its in-house capabilities, including mechanical and electrical engineering expertise and specialist geotechnical knowledge to meet the project’s requirements and provide the client with an integrated, sustainable design.
Hector Macaulay, Managing Director of Balfour Beatty’s regional business in Scotland, said: “This is another great win for our business in Scotland.
“Throughout the project lifecycle, we will work closely with a variety of key community stakeholders including the Polmont Young Offenders Institution, Forth Valley Community Focus and The Engineering Trust to drive further benefit and deliver on our added social value promises.”
Works are due to commence this Autumn, and at construction peak will employ over 250 individuals including 18 apprenticeship positions and opportunities for 10 long term unemployed people.
