Alloa Campus

The aim for Forth Valley College was to create a Alloa Campus to the BREEAM for Education “Excellent” rating. BREEAM is the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method and our aim is to minimise the adverse effects of our new campus on the environment at global and local scales whilst promoting healthy indoor conditions for the occupants. The following data relates to one of the BREEAM evidence sections and gives key information on the build.
