INTRODUCTION:
The Department of Education & Skills (DoES) has an ongoing policy of updating its Technical Guidance Documents (TGD) for Mechanical &Electrical (M&E) Building Services & Information Communications Technology (ICT) installations in post primary schools. DoES Technical Guidance Document TGD - 031 is an interim document and its provisions will be subsumed into DoES Technical Guidance Documents TGD - 003, 005 & 006 when these documents themselves are next updated and posted on the DoES website. This document should be read in conjunction with DoES TGD-003, 005 & 006 and the DOES room layout drawings for post-primary schools. These are available on the DoES website www.education.ie. It is to be used by school authorities and Design Teams to assist them in the design of the ICT installations and M&E building services on new school and extension projects in post primary schools and also on refurbishment and upgrading projects where practical, appropriate and effective. Once these guidelines have been posted on the DoES website, www.education.ie they must be implemented in full on all new post-primary school projects entering the design process. For projects currently in the design process they shall be implemented as follows: PROJECTS WHERE STAGE 1 IS IN PREPARATION: These guidelines shall be implemented and addressed in the design development of Stage 2a. PROJECTS WHERE STAGE 2A IS IN PREPARATION: Where time allows and the implementation of these guidelines is not likely to contribute to delays in the preparation of a Stage 2a submission they should be incorporated into the stage submission. Otherwise a Stage 2a submission based on DoES TGD - 003 & 005 shall be submitted. These guidelines shall be implemented and addressed in the design development of Stage 2b. PROJECTS WHERE STAGE 2B IS IN PREPARATION: Where time allows and the implementation of these guidelines is not likely to contribute to delays in the preparation of a Stage 2b submission they should be incorporated into the stage submission. Otherwise a Stage 2b submission based on DoES TGD - 003 & 005 shall be submitted. These guidelines shall be implemented and addressed in the development of Stage 3. PROJECTS AT PRE-STAGE 3: The project should proceed without any amendments to tender documentation. Some or all of DoES TGD - 031 may be incorporated as post contract Change Orders.
