Carrigaline schools breaking ground

Wednesday, 13th February, 2019 4:59pm

Three schools across Cork have reached major milestones in terms of their development.

Following the completion of an archaeological excavation at the site of the three-school campus in Carrigaline, which incorporates the Gaelscoil, Gaelcholáiste and Sonas, a report on subsequent findings will be submitted in due course, paving the way for works to begin on the campus’ main contract.

Tenders for this contract have now been received for both mechanical and electrical reserve specialists, and these files are currently being assessed by the design team. The contract with the main contractor, including the mechanical and electrical reserve specialists is due to be finalised following examination of all tenders received, with a view to commencing works on site as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, the initial phase of the extension project at Coláiste an Chraoibhín in Fermoy is also in full swing, with the Department of Education and Skills (DES) granting permission to Cork Education and Training Board (CETB) to proceed to tender, following the submission of their report in December.

Once all submitted tenders have been assessed, Cork ETB will forward a report to the DES for approval to proceed with the appointment of the preferred tenderer.

Another CETB project currently experiencing rapid progression is the extension project at St Colman’s Community College in Midleton. The enabling works contractor has now commenced on site and the design team is organising for specialists and inspectors to visit the site in order to review the installed works.

Acting Chief Executive of CETB John Fitzgibbons, said: “It is a bright start to the year with so much exciting project work underway across the county. It spells a bright future for CETB schools and the staff, students and parents that fill them with life. We will continue to work with the Department of Education and Skills through the course of each development in order to expedite the delivery of each project for the relevant community. We’re excited at the prospects these works hold for the future of education in Cork.”
