Project management team appointed for new Fife College campus
Fife College has appointed the project management team that will deliver its new Dunfermline campus.
Following a rigorous procurement process, construction and property consultancy firm Gardiner & Theobald was chosen to form the multi-disciplinary project management and design team.
The firm will be aided by architects Reiach and Hall, which will form part of the design team for the development.
The appointment will enable the design to be developed for the Fife College element of the Dunfermline Learning Campus, an innovative and collaborative venture to re-locate the Dunfermline Campus of Fife College and the proposed relocation of St Columba’s RC High School and Woodmill High School.
The college build is being supported through a £90 million investment from the Scottish Government, with the aim for it to be completed in time for the start of the 2024/25 academic year.
Chief operating officer at Fife College, Sue Reekie, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for the College, and this announcement means we can move on to the next stage of development for our new Dunfermline campus.
“We undertook an incredibly thorough procurement process to find the team to manage the project going forward, and to undertake the design work.
“We’re delighted to be working with Gardiner & Theobald, and along with architects Reiach and Hall we believe we’ve got the best possible group to deliver our new campus.
“Together, I’m sure that we will be able to fulfil our pledge to deliver a first-class, sustainable learning environment for our students.”
David Logue, partner at Gardiner & Theobald, added: “The Dunfermline Learning Campus is a transformational opportunity for education in Scotland and Gardiner & Theobald is honoured to be leading Fife College’s contribution to this.
“We are confident that our team will deliver world class facilities for the College and its students and staff.”
