The design and layout of the proposed Being Brunel buildings will serve to complement and enhance the setting of the SS Great Britain in her historic dockyard, providing an appropriate backdrop in keeping with ongoing interpretation of the Great Western Dockyard in a similar manner previously achieved to the south and east of the ship. Importantly the presence of the ship seen from the water, the north side of the harbour and Hotwell Road will remain as powerfully iconic as she currently is.
The 'Brunel' Drawing Office
Creating the national Brunel network
Brunel’s remarkable influence has reached every corner of the nation.
By creating the National Brunel Network, the SS Great Britain Trust will increase and develop the shared knowledge and expertise in Brunel heritage across the country, which as a result will strengthen his legacy.
Through the National Brunel Network, strong links will be forged with individuals and institutions to pool resources and create educational programmes.
This will make all Brunel related projects more accessible and will provide a comprehensive research and development tool which will benefit British engineering.
