Forth Valley College Nominated for the 2022 RIBA Stirling Prize
Forth Valley College in Falkirk, Scotland is one of six buildings to have been nominated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for the 2022 RIBA Stirling Prize. The RIBA Stirling Prize is the UK’s most prestigious architecture award and is presented to the UK’s best new building.
Wardell Armstrong were proud to deliver landscape architecture, drainage, civil engineering and structural engineering services to this project post-Tender and during the Construction stage (RIBA Stages 3-to-6).
The new campus – which serves as Forth Valley College’s headquarters – completes the College’s ambitious £138million estates programme which saw Alloa Campus open in 2011 and Stirling Campus open a year later. The design for the new campus was undertaken with diligence and understanding for the occupier’s needs, in an extremely collaborative strategy alongside the rest of the Design Team, and using state-of-the-art materials and construction methods. The internal building is organised in a grid with courtyards, streets, open learning spaces, and closed classrooms. The result is a very modern, friendly and high-specification building and landscape that we are extremely proud of, and exemplifies Wardell Armstrong’s approach to the Built Environment.
The new learning environment is no stranger to high profile award nominations and wins. The campus came top in the category of ‘Architecture: Education Building/Project’ at the Scottish Design Awards last year.
The winner of the 2022 RIBA Stirling Prize will be announced on Thursday 13th October 2022 at RIBA, in London.
