UK’s constriction specialist Balfour Beatty has won a £55m contract to complete the final phase of construction work on the new Falkirk campus in Scotland.
The scope of the contract, which was awarded by Forth Valley College, includes the construction of the 20,709 sq m Science and Engineering campus and its associated facilities.
Upon completion, the campus will become the Forth Valley College headquarters and house over 2,000 full-time students.
Balfour Beatty said that the company has used its in-house capabilities, including mechanical and electrical engineering expertise and specialist geotechnical knowledge to fulfill the project’s requirements and provide the client with an integrated, sustainable design.
Balfour Beatty managing director of regional business in Scotland Hector Macaulay said: “This is another great win for our business in Scotland, and we are delighted to be able to provide over 2,000 students in Falkirk with a stimulating and exciting study environment.
“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.”
Construction is slated to begin autumn this year. The project will create 250 construction jobs.
