This building project is included in my Department’s Construction Programme which is being delivered under the National Development Plan.

The project is currently at Stage 2B of the Architectural Planning process – Detailed Design Stage which includes securing statutory approvals and the preparation of tender documents. The pre-qualification of contractors process to compile a short-list of suitable contractors has been carried out by the Design Team.

The next step for this project will be Stage 3 – tender stage which normally takes 7-8 months to complete. My Department will be in contact shortly with the school and its Design Team regarding the progression of this project.
