Written answers (Question to Education)

The building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is included in my Department’s Construction Programme which is being delivered under the National Development Plan. The project will provide new build, extension and refurbishment which will bring the school accommodation up to 16 mainstream classrooms and a 2-classroom Special Educational Needs Base.

This project is one of the school building projects on my Department’s ADAPT 2 (Accelerated Delivery of Architectural Planning & Tendering) Programme. My Department is currently in the process of procuring a Project Manager for the ADAPT 2 Programme, which contains 16 school building projects.

The process to appoint a Design Team – (Architect, Quantity Surveyor, Civil and Structural Engineer, Mechanical and Electrical Engineer and Project Supervisor for the Design Process) for the school in question has commenced. The closing date for submissions in respect of design team consultants is Tuesday, 9 July on the eTenders website.
