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.

The Stage 2b submission has been approved by the Department and the school and Design Team are currently engaged in the prequalification process to select a shortlist of contractors for tender stage. Pre-qualification normally takes between 8 and 12 weeks to complete.

Once the prequalification process is complete my Department will be in contact with the Board of Management with a view to progressing the project to tender stage.
