I propose to take Questions Nos. 39 and 54 together.

The major building project for this school 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.

A legal challenge to the pre-qualification process for the main contract from one unsuccessful contractor has recently been struck out and it is expected that a new invitation to pre-qualify will issue this month on the e-tenders platform.

When the pre-qualification process for the main contract and reserved specialists contracts is complete the project will then be progressed to tender stage.

The Department has met twice recently with school representatives and continues to be in regular contact with them in relation to the project.
