New Falkirk Campus

Forth Valley College is currently planning a new £78 million Falkirk Campus.

This exciting facility will provide the headquarters for the College and will offer state-of-the-art learning environments.

There will be a regional approach in terms of provision with clear links to local employment opportunities. There will be a focus on STEM, Care & Sport.

The new campus will be built on Grangemouth Road, Falkirk on the site of the College’s former Middlefield Building. The site has excellent transport links and is located next to the Helix Park.

Key project partners include the Scottish Government, Scottish Funding Council, Scottish Futures Trust, Forth Valley College Foundation and AECOM.

Award winning architectural firm Reiach and Hall have been appointed to design the new campus.  

Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, will be responsible for the construction work. 

The new Falkirk Campus will complete Forth Valley College’s estates development strategy – a new Alloa Campus opened in 2011 and a new Stirling Campus opened in 2012.
