Historic Vessels

BR was appointed by Dundee Industrial Heritage to perform a comprehensive structural inspection of the RRS Discovery. The inspection was then used as a foundation for an optioneering study for conservation and interpretation options. Options included plans ranging from permanently drydocking the vessel, creating a permanent climate-controlled environment or repairing and re-floating the vessel using her own hull. BR developed a step-by-step guided process towards restoration and interpretation of the RRS Discovery, with binary decisions throughout the optioneering process guided by testing and supported by a comprehensive Risk Assessment.
