To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of delivery of new school buildings under the Adapt 18 programme; the number of new schools that have been delivered; the status of all projects under the programme; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
ADAPT stands for Accelerated Delivery of Architectural Planning and Tendering.
It is a pilot programme of 20 major projects which uses a professional external Project Manager (PM) to coordinate and drive the respective design teams on each project. The intention of ADAPT is to provide an improved, accelerated delivery timeframe for each of those projects.
The Project Manager was appointed in mid 2015 and the design teams for each of the projects were appointed in January 2016.
17 of the 20 projects have to date reached advanced architectural planning with most currently completing stage 2(b).
