A contractor for Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi/Cardigan Secondary School’s £5.8million improvements is set to be appointed.
Following a tendering process three compliant bids for the 21st Century band B project to build a three storey extension and other remodelling work have been accessed by Ceredigion County Council.
At cabinet on Tuesday, November 2 senior councillors are recommended to give approval to accept the preferred bidder and enter into a contract for the project, subject to grant approval from Welsh Government for the Business Justification Case.
A report to the meeting states that work is expected to start on site in July 2021, with competition due the following summer.
The £5.8million budget is spilt 35/65 between the council and Welsh Government 21st Century Schools programme and includes replacing windows, removing temporary classrooms, installing a new energy efficient boiler and enhancing the existing courtyards.
Other improvements include internal remodelling, a first floor extension for two new science laboratories and another above the music room to create a drama studio.
The three storey extension will include eight classrooms and three ICT suites.
Full details of the tender evaluation are considered exempt information and not included in the public reports.
