Front of school project update
The Tender process has now been opened for our Front of school project. Tenders close Thursday 22 August and evaluation process to follow to review submissions. As for all aspects of this large project, Q Tender and the Procurement branch review all submissions and processes. There have been eighteen companies to date, that have completed a submission, with nine companies attending a site inspection. Council approval is underway for the removal of the rock wall near the prep entry and the extension of the current retaining wall. Approval from Council is also being sought for the widening of the lower car park driveway.
We are hoping the construction contract will be awarded by September 3 with works to begin during the September holidays.
After confirmation of the successful tender, a site meeting will occur to review stages of the project. As we draw closer to the start date we will be notifying the community of any impact to parking and entry to the school that may be altered to accommodate the works. We are hoping to keep disruptions to a minimum but it is likely that there will be an impact to our regular entries and exits. Please check the newsletter for continued updates.
