Enhancing and forming of a strong link across all H:YMC sites with a focus on interpretation of the maritime history. • Enhancing the rationale between public space in the HMM, including open storage, and complimentary longer-term storage, archive and research in the DOC (Dock Office Chambers). • Upgrading lift access to 'evacuation lift' for all lifts, ensuring access and safe escape for all. Including upgrading internal ramped access in the HMM, ensuring an inclusive circulation route around the museum for all visitors and staff.
