    Promoter – Financial Intermediary




    The project finances the new build of four schools campuses and the reconstruction, renovation and/or extension of six existing schools. All are secondary schools located in the Dutch province of Noord Brabant. All new schools replace facilities that are no longer fit for purpose. Consolidation will occur as the result of school mergers. No increase in overall enrolment capacity is foreseen.


    The project investments are heavily focused on increasing energy efficiency and bringing up to norms out of date school facilities.


    Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)

    EUR 60 million

    Total cost (Approximate amount)

    EUR 159 million

    Environmental aspects

    The project includes new buildings, extensions and renovation of existing primary and secondary schools. The Directive 2011/92/EC does not specifically mention the need for an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for buildings related to education, but it may be that some sub-projects can be regarded as urban renewal projects and might require an EIA (Annex II of the European Directive). This will be examined during the appraisal.


    The procedures for tendering and procurement used by the promoter must comply with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directives 2004/18/EC, or 2014/24/EU where applicable, and/or 2004/17/EC, or 2014/25/EU where applicable, and/or 2014/23/EU where applicable, as well as Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC). The procedures will be assessed during the appraisal.
