The Deputy will be aware that the project to which he refers has been devolved for delivery to Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board (KWETB).

The contractor who is currently on site completing the external fabric of the buildings is expected to complete this work shortly.

Tender documents for the completion of the remaining works have issued to the relevant shortlisted contractors. A tender return date of 5th of June has been set in that respect. It is fully expected that the successful contractor will recommence work on site in early Q3 2019 and that the buildings will be available for occupation prior to September 2020.
