TOVP Hires Cushman & Wakefield to Manage Completion of the Project
By Sunanda das   |  Jul 28, 2018

The Temple of the Vedic Planetarium (TOVP) management Team has recently made an important decision to hire the assistance of a world-leading Project Management Consultancy (PMC) company, Cushman and Wakefield, to partner with them for the completion of the TOVP by the proposed 2022, Gaura Purnima time-frame.

This is a standard practice in the construction industry for projects of this extraordinary size and complexity, and essential for the timely and budgeted work ahead now that the temple superstructure is finished. Cushman and Wakefield have been a household name in the construction industry for over one hundred years with over 45,000 employees now operating in 40 offices and 70 countries around the world.

The role of a PMC is to take the lead management role in the design management, cost management and construction management of the project, acting as the extended arm and implementation team of the client for whom they are working in full cooperation to achieve their ultimate vision. A PMC offers the most efficient management solution for increasing and improving the overall efficiency and outcome of a project. This is accomplished by undertaking a planned series of synchronized and budgeted activities through well thought out planning and coordination, resulting in a highly organized, monitored and controlled strategy to produce a functionally and financially viable project that will be completed on time, within authorized cost and to the required quality standards.

After several months of rigorous research, interviews and evaluation, TOVP Chairman Ambarisa Das selected the best of the best, the company he felt would be the most qualified and experienced to handle the needs of the TOVP project and bring the optimal results. A company that would offer outstanding professional construction oversight, superlative financial management and timely completion of the project to fulfill Srila Prabhupada’s dearmost vision of the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium.

With the services of Cushman and Wakefield on board Ambarisa and the TOVP Team are now fully confident that their combined goal of offering Srila Prabhupada the completed TOVP will be achieved by 2022. That year will not only celebrate the Grand Opening of the temple, but the most auspicious fiftieth anniversary of the Mayapur project as well. The TOVP team feels it will be a time of great rejoicing throughout ISKCON as Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s sankirtana movement reaches new heights of expansion and development that will have far-reaching effects into the future for generations to come.
