Suffolk Cathedral millenium project
Posted by APM on 13th Jul 2010
Nick Moore of Gardiner & Theobald Management Services presented to the East of England branch in May 2000 on the Suffolk Cathedral Millennium Project.
After the introduction of the National Lottery and the Millennium Commission in 1995 and after two submissions had been rejected, a grant of 5m was made in November 1997 towards the overall cost of over 10m to complete the works. The remainder of the money has just about been raised from public and private subscriptions. Gardiner & Theobald Management Services were appointed in December 1997 as project managers for those works, of which the tower is the largest and most conspicuous part.
This was a fascinating presentation by Nick who concluded that the tower was due to be complete in 2004. The final completion was in 2005, when the skyline of Bury St Edmunds changed with the completion of a magnificent 150 ft (45m) gothic lantern tower. Five years in construction, the Millennium Tower and other works have been built, employing traditional materials and methods.
