Major renovation work for Foundation.
In collaboration with XP School, Principle Contractors Create LTD and partners, Doncaster Rovers Community Sports and Education Foundation are delighted to announce an exciting new building project at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Due to the overwhelming success of the education courses that the Foundation offers, capacity has now been reached and expansion is required.
The build will see the construction of state of the art classrooms, computer suites, flexible learning spaces and offices within the stadium which will cater for 120 students and over 20 teaching and office staff.
XP School, Doncaster’s new free school, and the Foundation have collaborated to bring the exciting project to fruition, which will be completed over the coming months.
The site will be initially used by XP School as temporary accommodation, before becoming the full time home of the Foundation from September 2015.
Chief executive of the Foundation Liam Scully said: “It was a great achievement for all when we were named North East Community Club of the Year, but that was based on our current outputs and achievement. Our aim is to be the best Community Club in the country but we are currently at our ceiling due to facility constraints, we simply can’t work or engage with any more people than we currently do based on our facilities, so the only way to grow further was by developing a new, bigger Community Hub at the Keepmoat Stadium.”
“This development will give us the scope to grow, but what has been most pleasing is the support we have been given by local groups and organisations. The management group from XP have been fantastic throughout and although the build works well for us both in providing temporary accommodation for their needs and long term facilities for our requirements, it really needed an open mind as to collaboration. It took a great deal of trust from them, so for us it was pleasing to see how forthcoming they have been.
“In addition this has happened very quickly and with limited resources. There has been a great deal of people involved in making this happen and I can’t thank them enough for their support and dedication to the project. I can’t name them all but must mention our architect, Anthony Snowden, Principle Contractor and fit out team Create LTD, Peter Fowler Electrical, Hanicks, B2 Contract Solutions Ltd and AM Safety Services Ltd. They have all been phenomenal in their support, as the build develops it is clear to see we are dealing with operators at the pinnacle of their field.”
