Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy may be aware, a building project to deliver permanent accommodation for Edmund Rice College Carpenterstown/Castleknock is included in my Department’s 6 year Construction Programme and will be delivered under my Department's 2020 Design & Build programme.

This delivery programme uses a professional external Project Manager to progress the project through the relevant stages of architectural planning and construction.

A tender competition to establish a Project Manager framework is nearing completion. 

The acquisition is currently at an advanced stage in the conveyancing process. Due to commercial sensitivities relating to site acquisitions, I am not in a position to provide further details at this time.
