Contract for new Fife College campus awarded
Balfour Beatty has been awarded the £90M contract by Fife College for the design and construction of a new learning campus in Dunfermline, Scotland.
The company will be responsible for the delivery of three interlinked buildings covering an area of 20,000m2, which will house state-of-the-art teaching facilities and learning spaces for students, staff and business clients.
As part of its commitment to leaving a lasting legacy, Balfour Beatty said 50% of its workforce will be made up of local people. Once complete, the campus will bring together around 4,500 school pupils and college students from the nearby Fife College, St Colomba’s High School and Woodmill High School.
Hector MacAulay, Managing Director of Balfour Beatty’s regional business in Scotland, said; “We are delighted to have been appointed to design and construct the new campus.
“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.”
