Walled Garden - A Critical Path
The project to deliver the new Pavilion Learning building has a critical path, in more ways than one!
A critical path in project management speak is a series of steps or tasks which are vital to the progess of the project, which cannot be delayed without detriment to the whole programme. On such a bespoke building such as the Pavilion, this is all the more challenging, as there is often only one course of action or decision which can be made, as any other would destroy the whole design concept. Nevertheless our design team led by the architect practice, David Austin & Associates and our Main Contractor, DJP Construction have been doing a superb job - just a peak through the garden gate will reveal the wonder which is the Pavilion!
However, within the Walled Garden there is another critical path! That is the entranceway from the Museum reception up to the garden. The entranceway is crucial to ensuring the Walled Garden vision is fully realised. Until funding is secured for this crucial quarter of the garden, access will be limited and as a result the garden not fully enjoyed by those who visit the Museum. We have already had much support but just a little bit more is needed to enable the entranceway to be constructed.
The Friends continue to fundraise for this key part of the garden, the easiest way to support this is by text. Text WGDN23 £5 to 70070 to donate £5 to the Walled Garden Project.
The image on this page shows a close-up of the proposed entranceway from the Museum Reception in the bottom right hand corner.
