YOUMEHESHE concept for the Cutty Sark in association with Grimshaw

February 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

At a meeting between Simon Beames, Richard Doughty, Christopher Nash and Ian Bell it was agreed to be a good idea to lift the Cutty Sark by sufficient height to acheive useful space beneath. This enabled the Trust to find space for functions and exhibitions, otherwise unavailable to them. The dry berth was the only land within the Trust’s control, and was an open pit often full of debris. It had been unsafe for visitors to use this space for some time and the ship propping was vulnerable.

Ian Bell suggested glass columns, Simon Beames suggested no columns….

Albert Taylor of AKT engineered a solution to the holding of the ship, a belt and braces kevlar strap system which would also re stabilise the ships own sagging structure to boot.

This idea became the notional way forward and when presented to Heritage Lottery commissions on board Cutty Sark was warmly received.

This sketch by Simon was used to communicate the proposal in the temporary museum created by YOUMEHESHE

Later, after an OJEU process the concept was retained, the engineers changed and the Kevlar swapped for Steel.
