The tender process for major extension works at Craughwell National School is making good progress, according to Galway East TD and Minister for Rural Affairs Seán Canney.
Minister Canney said: “I am delighted that the project is moving ahead.
“The pre-qualification documentation for the main works contractor has been finalised and the call for expressions of interest has been published today (Monday November 11) with a closing date of November 29.
“The work is being procured by the Office of Public Works through its Galway Regional Office. The OPW will draw up a shortlist of contractors who will then be asked to tender for the works.”
The project consists of a two-storey extension of 1,628 sq metres to the existing school, replacing prefab classrooms.
It will include eight classrooms, a general purpose sports hall, a multi-purpose room, offices for administration and the principal, a lift, toilets, car parking and a drop-off and pick-up area.
Minister Canney met with the project design team and the school’s Board of Management last July and has subsequently been making representations about its progress along with Cllr Geraldine Donohue.
