The firm will build three interlinked buildings spanning over 20,000m2 to house teaching facilities and learning spaces for students, staff and business clients.
As part of its commitment to leaving a lasting, positive legacy for the communities in which it operates, Balfour Beatty has committed to 50% of its workforce being made up of people from the local, surrounding area.
Once complete, the campus will bring together around 4,500 school pupils and college students from Fife College, St Columba’s RC High School and Woodmill High School.
Hector MacAulay, managing director of Balfour Beatty in Scotland, said: “Throughout, we will remain steadfast in our commitment to positively impacting local communities and stimulating economic growth, providing numerous employment opportunities for local people as well as work experience placements for students.”
Main construction is scheduled to commence later this month. At peak construction, Balfour Beatty will employ 400 people on the project including a number of apprenticeship and graduate positions.
