TOVP Hires Cushman & Wakefield to Manage Completion of the Project


By editor - 26.7 2018

The 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, Ambarisa prabhu 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 prabhu and the TOVP Team are now fully confident that our 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. It will be a time of great rejoicing throughout ISKCON as Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s samkirtana movement reaches new heights of expansion and development that will have far-reaching effects into the future for generations to come. And the blessings of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur will undoubtedly be showered on one and all, as stated by Srila Prabhupada:

“If you all build this temple, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur will personally come and take you all back to Godhead.”

Now is the time we need your help the most to join the TOVP MISSION 22 MARATHON to complete the TOVP by 2022. The time is right, the place is right and the circumstance is right to offer your heartfelt support to establish the spiritual legacy of Sridhama Mayapur by helping to build the TOVP. If you have not yet made a pledge to support the TOVP or would like to make another, or if you can increase your pledge or your monthly pledge payments, please go to Seva Opportunities page now and do so. You and your family members for generations into the future will be the benefactors of such a seva:

“If the devotee offers something to the Lord, it acts for his own interest because whatever a devotee offers the Lord comes back in a quantity a million times greater than what was offered. One does not become a loser by giving to the Lord; one becomes a gainer by millions of times.”

Srila Prabhupada, Krsna Book, Ch. 81
