The project comprises the construction of a new academic and education building, the extension of other academic buildings and the refurbishment of several existing college facilities. Directive 2011/92/EU, as amended by Directive 2014/52/EU, 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 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.
