The Project

The modernisation of the estate was achieved through a series of long-term arrangements using various standard forms of contract.  The first phase of the Strategic Partnership involved the procurement of five schools (one primary and four post primary) using the DBFOM option alongside two design and build nursery schools.

The projects are fully operational including a mixture of youth clubs, primary schools and libraries.
