The major building project referred to by the Deputy is currently completing Stage 2(b) - Detailed Design, which involves the production of a complex and detailed set of tender

documents and an accurate pre-tender cost check by the Design Team, in accordance with my Departments Technical Guidance Documents, Building Regulations and Public Works Procurement procedures.

The Design Team advised my Department earlier in March that the completion of Stage 2b would be delayed while they continue to complete the required detailed design and tender documents. My

Department have met with the Design Team and School as recently as this week to discuss in detail the completion of Stage 2(b) and to establish a revised estimated date of submission. It is in the best interest of the project that the Design Team complete the Stage 2(b) submission in a coherent and comprehensive manner in order to progress the project to Tender Stage and to ensure that the risk of further issues arising is minimised during the tender and construction stages.
