St Francis Xavier College
Location: Liverpool, England.

Project details

As part of Liverpool Schools Investment Programme, funded by Liverpool City Council, St Francis Xaviers College in Woolton, Liverpool has benefited from a complete overhaul of its facilities.

This £7.6 million project has a new state of the art science laboratory and sports centre as well as significant refurbishments to many parts of the original school vastly improving its facilities.


Project overview

GDL designed and supplied bespoke Intelivent Wall Units incorporating Linear Bar Grilles to suit Sport England specifications. Under the legislation set by Sport England the products we supplied must adhere to their specifications for sports facilities, this is not just a standard set for schools but for all leisure, sports centres and gyms nationally. Our Linear Bar Grilles had to be impact resistant to withstand any force from ball games in the facility.

Our Intelivent Wall Units allow fresh air to enter the sports facility passing through a series of grilles and dampers allowing a controlled environment. Natural Ventilation is a particularly effective method of ventilating open spaces with a high occupancy such as a sports hall.
