The building project for the school to which the Deputy refers is at an advanced stage of architectural planning, Stage 2b – Detailed Design, which includes the applications for Planning Permission, Fire Cert and Disability Access Cert and the preparation of tender documents. All statutory approvals have been obtained.

The Design Team is currently finalising the stage 2b documentation and expects to submit the finalised Stage 2b Report to my Department shortly. 

Upon receipt and review of this outstanding documentation and providing no other issues arise, my Department will then revert to the Board of Management with authorisation to complete pre-qualification of Contractors. When the pre-qualification process has been completed the project will then be progressed to tender stage.
