Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects Status
166. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills when the overall contract for the construction of a new education campus (details supplied) in County Cork will go to tender; when the campus development will be completed; when the schools will open on the campus site; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [18955/18]
The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved for delivery to the local Education & Training Board.
The Design team has now completed a revised Stage 2B report which was recently submitted to my Department for consideration. In addition, contractors for the project are in the process of being pre-qualified.
Once the pre-qualification of contractors has been completed and the stage 2B submission has been approved, the intention is that the project will proceed to tender and construction. It is not possible to say when the project will commence on-site until these processes have been completed.
