Decision Outcome

Noted that in September 2019, Cabinet agreed the ‘School Place Planning & Capital Programme 2019/20’ report to assign SEND funding with a provision of £1.6m allocation derived from the Basic Needs Grant to target specifically identified SEND priority projects.


Noted the delivery of 2 Designated Special Provisions (DSP) Classrooms spaces and associated works within the identified priority school, namely; Woolwich Polytechnic School.


Agreed the total budget of £294,208 based on a feasibility report produced by Ingleton Wood LLP to carry out the required adaptive works to the School as noted in section 4 of this report.


Noted that as part of the risk management strategy related to COVID-19 the design is being progressed to RIBA Stage 3 inclusive of mechanical & electrical design and building fabric specifications which will help with cost certainty


Noted that Procurement of a Contractor for the scheme has not yet been tendered for nor has the Scheme yet been developed with detailed design work, as a result it is difficult to accurately predict the project costs.  Therefore, a risk allowance has been included in the project budget to cater for such uncertainties should they arise during RIBA stages 2-7.


Delegated to the Director of Regeneration, Enterprise and Skills in consultation with the Director of Children’s Services the authority to vary the scheme in accordance with identified priorities.


This decision is subject to call-in until 5pm 11 June 2020.
