Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects
257. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the commencement date for the new school building project for a school (details supplied) in County Donegal; the date that her Department has given the building company by which it must start the construction phase of the school building; the envisaged completion date for same; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [2506/23]
My Department has a large pipeline of projects for delivery under the school building programme, including the project for the school to which the Deputy refers. The main elements of this pipeline currently involve in excess of 1,300 school building projects for delivery under my Department’s Large Scale and Additional Accommodation Scheme. These projects are currently in progress across the various stages of planning, design, tender and construction, most of which are expected to be either under construction or completed in the period up to 2025.
During January, my Department will be assessing overall requirements for 2023 and associated work programme and will update individual schools of same in due course.
