Falkirk campus signing

Balfour Beatty has won a contract to deliver the final phase of construction work to the new £55m Forth Valley College campus in Falkirk, Scotland. 

The contractor will build the 20,709m2 Science and Engineering campus and its associated facilities, which when completed late next year will become the college’s headquarters and house over 2,000 full-time students.

It said it has utilised a range of its in-house capabilities, including mechanical and electrical engineering expertise and specialist geotechnical knowledge to meet the project’s requirements.

Work is due to commence this autumn and at construction peak will employ over 250 staff including 18 apprenticeship positions and opportunities for 10 long term unemployed people.
