The Board of Management of Mercy Convent School has been through the formal dispute resolution process resulting in April of this year of the termination of the obligation of the Main Contractor to complete the construction of the new school building.
The Board of Management and its Design Team have carried out a full assessment of the partially constructed building and are in the process of appointing a contractor to make the building weather-proof.
The Design Team has also commenced the process of drawing up tender documents to hold a tender competition to appoint a completion contractor as soon as possible.
