Fife College has secured the option to buy land for the construction of a new college campus on the Shepherd Offshore site on Dunlin Drive, Dunfermline, Scotland.The project, which forms part of a broader plan announced to improve College estates across Fife, is estimated to cost about £90m ($130.1m).Principal Hugh Logan said: “Our students’ needs are paramount when making decisions about our new campus. The new state-of-the-art college will be built around the requirements of our students, from location and accessibility to the layout, design and resources required.”Scottish government’s NPD Programme will provide £70m of the project funding, while the remaining amount will be procured from Scottish Funding Council (SFC) and college resources.SFC has already given the go-ahead to an outline business case for the use of the site for the college build. A full business case for the college project is expected to be considered later in 2016. “Transport links will also be an important factor and we will work with Fife Council and partners to ensure the new campus benefits from excellent transport links,” Logan added.
South London’s Lambeth College has selected Carillion Developments to build a new skill centre in the college’s Vauxhall site.
