Written answers (Question to Education)

The major building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is at an advanced stage of Architectural Planning – Stage 2b (Detailed Design) which includes the application for statutory approvals and the preparation of tender documents.

Following a review of a revised Stage 2(b) submission, my Department have issued comments to the school and its design team.

The design team is requested to incorporate those comments into the tender documents and carry out a final review of all its tender documentation to ensure that it is complete, correct and in compliance with my Department's requirements and with Building Control (Amendment) Regulations.

Upon receipt of the design team confirmations that this final review is complete, my Department will revert to the school with regard to the further progression of this project at that time.
