Schools Building Projects
The major building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is currently at an advanced stage of architectural planning, Stage 2(b) – Detailed Design, which includes the applications for Planning Permission, Fire Cert and Disability Access Cert and the preparation of tender documents.
The Design Team is currently working on the completion of the Stage 2(b) report which upon completion will be submitted to the Department for review.
In order to expedite the progression of this project the Department, in January 2021, authorised the Design Team to commence the pre-qualification process to select a shortlist of contractors for this project in parallel with the completion of the Stage 2(b) report.
Upon receipt, review and approval of the Stage 2(b) report and completion of the pre-qualification process the project will progress to tender and construction stages. My Department and the design team will continue to keep the school fully informed regarding the further progression of this project.
