Storage Solutions


Ocean Design have been providing storage solutions to the Museums & Heritage world for over 20 years

Services range from collection surveys and storage designs to product development and delivery of storage projects

All designs comply with current BS standards and DCMS recommendations

Collection surveys form the back bone of our services and we feel that without a clear understanding of what a collection may consist of; its needs for expansion and collection care and access and the space available to store that collection the right solution cannot be provided

Our collection surveys have ranged from the Ashmolean Museum Oxford to Imperial War Museum; Herbert Art Gallery Coventry; Hereford Museum & Resource Centre and the Geffrye Museum London to the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences in Sydney to Military Museums in Muscat & Abu Dhabi

Product development has included universal storage cabinets for the Natural History Museum London to light weight picture hanging systems for the Imperial War Museum Lambeth and high rise costume / uniform storage for the National Army Museum

Project delivery has included the Ashmolean Oxford; National Museums of Scotland; Imperial War Museum London and Duxford; Natural History Museum London & Tring; Rothschild Collection at Waddesdon Manor; Chatsworth House; National Army Museum; Horniman Museum; University of St. Andrews; Hereford Museum & Resource Centre; Herbert Art Gallery Coventry; Millennium Seed Bank Wakehurst Place; National Maritime Museum Greenwich; Stained Glass Museum Ely; Scott Polar Museum Cambridge; Gustav Holst Museum Cheltenham; Holburne Museum Bath; Royal Palaces Collection; Airborne Forces archive; Firepower: Royal Artillery Museum and the Historic Costume Collection for the Royal Opera House

To date around 440 installations in over 130 establishments

Storage systems designed and supplied have included both mobile and static shelving; picture rack systems; drawers systems including glass display tops; hanging garments and rolled textiles to entomology and natural history collection cabinets

Collection surveys; feasibility studies and Lottery funded schemes form part of our work together with collection relocation surveys designs and project delivery for museums having to relocate to more cost effective premises
