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.
A revised Stage 2(b) report was reviewed in my Department and comments issued to the Design Team in June 2019. The Design Team Consultant Architect has recently withdrawn from this project. A tender process to replace this consultant will commence shortly.
Upon appointment of the replacement consultant, a review of the stage 2(b) documentation will be carried out and the Design Team will then arrange to submit confirmations that they have carried out a final review of the tender documents.
Upon receipt of these confirmations my Department will be in contact with the school regarding the further progression of this project.
