Elmwood onboard for National Museum of the Royal Navy fit out

Elmwood has been commissioned to undertake the £1.25m fit out of a major new exhibition for the National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRM) at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Opening in Spring 2014, ‘HMS – Hear My Story’ will share the untold stories of the ordinary men, women and ships that have featured in the Navy’s history over the last 100 years.

The venue for this major new exhibition is the magnificent Grade 1 listed building known as Storehouse 10, constructed by the Navy in 1777 to provide storage for essential supplies and recently restored to create the Babcock Galleries.

Says Production Director Steven Gough: “Stand at the entrance to Storehouse 10 and in one direction you can see the Mary Rose, in the other HMS Victory. It really hits home the historical significance of the place and the fascinating stories just waiting to be shared.”

Responsible for coordinating the full interpretative and exhibition fit out, Elmwood will be working to the designs of Redman Design which will see the ground floor exhibition zoned into different areas charting the history of the Navy.
