The major building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is at an advanced stage of architectural planning, Stage 2 (b) - Detailed Design Stage, which includes the application for statutory approvals and the preparation of tender documents. All statutory approvals have been secured.

Dublin Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board currently have a tender process underway to appoint a replacement Quantity Surveyor for this project as the previous Design Team Quantity Surveyor has resigned. It is anticipated that the replacement QS will be appointed in early March 2019.

As soon as the appointment of the replacement consultant is fully ratified the Design Team will need to meet to brief the new Quantity Surveyor on the project and the Design Team will proceed to complete work on the Stage 2(b) submission.

Upon receipt and review of the Stage 2(b) submission my Department will revert to Dublin Dun Laoghaire Educational and Training Board with a timeline in relation to the further progression of this project.
