16 contractors have expressed their interest in securing the work for the building of the new Naas Community College, which is set to commence in the coming months.
The school, which will be based in Millennium Park near the large Kerry site, will provide much needed places for children in an area where the numbers of students continues to rise.
Labour representative Emmet Stagg sought information in relation to the number of contractors who had expressed an interest in tendering for the construction of the New School by the closing date of May 21 and when it is envisaged that actual Tenders would be invited for the project.
The Minster has advised Mr Stagg that Expressions of Interest were received from 16 contractors for the construction project and that the design team are currently assessing the information provided. This assessment will be completed as quickly as possible and when the process is completed the project can then proceed to tender.
The new school will provide places for 1,000 students and will have 37 general classrooms, six science labs, two woodwork rooms, two engineering rooms, two art rooms, a mediation room, physical education hall, library and ancillary rooms. Hard play areas and an all-weather pitch will also be provided.
