In Pictures:  Demolishing Falkirk’s former college building

A landmark building in Falkirk has been razed.

Forth Valley college’s Middlefield facility was replaced when the new Falkirk campus opened in January last year.

In the last few days the building has been demolished as part of a 12-week contract.

Carrying out the £188,000 contract to clear the site, which has been acquired for redevelopment by Forrest Developments and Dawn Developments, was Bonnybridge firm Central Demolition.

A spokesperson for the company said: “The position of the campus – along the busy Grangemouth Road – meant that our works gathered a lot of attention from the public. As always, our experienced team took the attention in their stride and worked safely, on time and within budget.”

Falkirk Technical College opened in 1963 and over the years was Falkirk College of Technology, before becoming the Falkirk campus for Forth Valley College.
