The Kelvingrove New Century Project _KGNCP_ by dfhrf555fcg


									The Kelvingrove New Century Project (KGNCP)
Planning and carrying out a project as large as the restoration of Kelvingrove takes several years, and
involves many people. In addition to existing members of Glasgow Museums staff, project team staff
were recruited for the duration of the project.

The project team co-ordinated the work of the different staff and departments across Glasgow City
Council involved in delivering the project. The team members were responsible for over £30 million of
work as part of the Kelvingrove New Century restoration, and related projects. They managed the
consultants and contractors during the various building and fit-out stages. It’s probably true to say that
most Glasgow Museums employees, whichever museum they’re based in, have been involved with the
KGNCP in one way or another over the last three years.

Text and displays
Curators, the Education & Access, Communications and Research and Major Projects teams were all
involved in the development of the displays and text for the new Kelvingrove. This involved
identifying key objects, messages and concepts for each story (groups of objects that had a story to tell
around a particular theme), developing ideas, consulting with community groups, writing, editing and
proofing text, and commenting on design. Consultation groups, including the Kelvingrove Junior
Board, provided invaluable feedback on the displays – please visit the Consultation section of this
website to find out more.
