The Royal Parks agency is progressing an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant to restore Greenwich Park. This iconic park is a Grade 1 listed landscape and lies within the Greenwich World Heritage Site area.
The Royal Parks have awarded contracts for preparatory work in support of its application to practices on its landscape architecture framework and JSA have been invited to develop proposals for the Flower Garden and Wilderness Deer Park. JSA will work with architects Erect Architecture, business development specialist Barker Langham and QS Huntley Cartwright to develop proposals for this Edwardian landscape and to more fully integrate into the park the Vanbrugh Lodge and the education centre buildings.
JSA have also been appointed to act as Lead Consultant for the Greenwich Park project, co-ordinating design inputs developed by individual design teams. JSA will prepare the HLF bid and manage external relations with key stakeholders including the World Heritage Site, the National Maritime Museum and Greenwich Council. JSA will be supported in this role by Huntley Cartwright (acting as QS for the funding application) and the Museum of London Archaeology (who will be providing contextual historical and archaeological information.
The Greenwich Park project will culminate in the submission of an application to the HLF in August 2017 and (subject to funding approval) a significant capital and revenue project that will proceed to development and delivery between 2017 and 2022.
