JSA to lead the restoration of Greenwich Park

9th May

Having developed a successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the Greenwich Park Revealed project, JSA have been appointed by the Royal Parks as lead consultant to develop and deliver this £7.5 million scheme at the heart of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site.

JSA has assembled a strong team of collaborators to progress the project including Watermans (Civil and Structural Engineering), ZMMA (interpretation design), CFP (activity planning and evaluation), the Ecology Consultancy (bio-diversity design), Eftec (Natural Capital Accounting) and Huntley Cartwright (Quantity Surveying).

The project will focus on works to restore the renaissance landscape of wooded architraves, Giant Steps and Greenwich Park’s landmark tree avenues. Works to improve visitor dispersal and to tell the rich and varied history of the park will be developed and implemented by the design team over a four-year programme.

JSA director Jon Sheaff commented – ‘Greenwich Park is as replete with heritage riches as it is possible for a public open space to be. Being appointed to lead the design team for this project is a unique privilege and we look forward hugely to working with our colleague, with the Royal Parks, the park’s many stakeholders and everyday users and visitors to tell the rich and complex story of this iconic public open space’
