Forth Valley College of Further and Higher Education
Designed by Reiach and Hall with Keppie design, this is the third campus Reiach and Hall have designed for the same client. The Falkirk campus is Forth Valley College’s headquarters facility. Including their Centre of Excellence for Sport, the 21,000sqm campus is designed to provide innovative learning spaces throughout and will incorporate the latest teaching technology.
The plan is simple and places the refectory at the heart, as a gathering place suitable for informal academic conversation as well as social interaction. Other flexible space is designed into the plan throughout the building, enabling a wide variety of learning activities.
Finished in a beautiful handmade brick, the simple facades develop ideas contained in the campuses at Alloa and Stirling, completing the family of buildings for Scotland’s first regional college.
