The pre-qualification of contractors stage of the tender process is nearing completion. It is expected to issue tender documents in the next few weeks to a shortlist of suitably qualified contractors and to appoint a main contractor by the end of July 2014. This is a complex project that will be carried out in phases to facilitate the continued operation of the school. Subject to a successful outcome to the tender process, it is anticipated that the first phase will commence in August / September this year and will be completed within three months. The remaining works, also taking three months to complete, will be commenced in July 2015.
