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).  The Stage 2(b) submission has been reviewed by my Department and comments have issued to the school and its Design Team.

At the end of September the project was authorised to commence the pre-qualification of contractors’ process and this process is currently on-going. 

When pre-qualification is complete this project will then be progressed to tender stage.

A tender stage normally takes between 7 and 8 months to complete.
