XP School, Doncaster

Located adjacent to Doncaster Rover’s Keepmoat Stadium, GBE Converge were appointed by Wates MEP to carry out the design, supply, installation and commissioning of all life-safety and security systems to the £5.6m free school.

The two-storey facility has flexible learning spaces for 350 students aged 11 to 19 years and is modelled on the practices of the extremely successful charter schools of High Tech High, San Diego and of Expeditionary Learning Schools in the USA and is designed to prepare children for success in the modern world.

Challenged with a constricted programme, GBE Converge’s site team worked closely with the main contractor to ensure deadlines were met and the project was completed on time. GBE Converge worked with partners Gent by Honeywell for fire detection and alarms, Baldwin Boxall for the disabled refuge and WC alarms, HIKvision for CCTV, Paxton for access control, Fermax for door entry and Honeywell for intruder alarm system.
