CAE was commissioned by Wilkinson Eyre Architects to be the universal design consultants for the Mary Rose Museum development, which opened in 2013.
The museum reunites the Mary Rose – Henry VIII’s flagship raised from the Solent near Portsmouth in 1982 – with its contents and crew and has become the centrepiece of Portsmouth Historic Dock. With an inclusive visitor experience at the heart of the development, CAE’s access consultancy was integral to the museum’s design.
As the Universal Design Consultants for the Mary Rose Museum development, CAE are delighted that the museum has been recognised at the Civic Trust Awards. The museum has won the Michael Middleton Special Award presented to an exemplar conservation project, or new build within a conservation area. The scheme was also shortlisted for the 2014 Selwyn Goldsmith Award for Universal Design.
