A Net Zero Carbon Pathfinder Project providing a new space for education. 

B&K Hybrid Solutions are delivering our first Deltabeam and CLT solution on behalf of Balfour Beatty. Engaged under a PCSA, BKHS have developed the Deltabeam and CLT solution with the project team, including detailed vibration analysis of the long span floor plate and development of critical connection analysis.

We are pleased to share some recent photography from Fife College in Dunfermline, where BKHS are delivering the largest Deltabeam and CLT hybrid project in the country.

The new state-of-the-art learning campus has been designed by Reiach and Hall Architects as a Net Zero Carbon Pathfinder Project with Scottish Futures Trust. The low carbon construction materials were specified with the aim of the new college campus building to be the first net zero tertiary education building in Scotland.

B&K Hybrid Solutions’ extensive experience with Cross Laminated Timber has been invaluable in delivering our first Deltabeam and CLT solution on behalf of Balfour Beatty plc. BKHS were engaged under a PCSA to develop the Deltabeam and CLT solution with the project team, including detailed vibration analysis of the long span floor plate and the development of critical connection details.

The design for Fife College is class leading with regards to its operational energy performance and is therefore being used as a Pathfinder project, with a strong focus on also diverting as much of the construction waste from landfill as possible. Every aspect of the new campus has been designed with learners in mind and is being carefully created to give students the best experience and facilities for their course. The new college is taking a fabric first approach and once complete will bring together around 4,500 school pupils and college students

We are delighted to be working alongside Balfour Beatty plc, Woolgar Hunter Engineers, Reiach and Hall Architects, Peikko Group Corporation and Stora Enso on this exciting project and look forward to bringing you further updates.
