HMS Raleigh Offshore Training Centre display solution

HMS Raleigh is the largest Royal Navy training establishment in the South West. The ‘front door’ for entry into the Royal Navy, with seven schools on site, the base looks after the 10 week Initial Naval Training for all braches.

In 2011, a new heritage centre was opened at the base to allow Royal Navy recruits to undergo computer-based learning and find out about the Royal Navy's illustrious past.

Working together with Apex, a specialist provider of live event management and bespoke exhibition stands, Unibox created an engaging display system for HMS Raleigh’s new Heritage Centre.


HMS Raleigh required a flexible, reconfigurable stand solution that could be installed throughout its training centre for various display purposes.

In the heritage area, recruits were to learn about the Royal Navy's rich past, with a series of storyboards depicting stories from history to illustrate the core values of the Service. Hi-tech touch screen computer kiosks were also to be used to allow trainees to speed through a timeline, and find out more details behind individual events.

New purpose-built display cabinets were also needed to showcase a flotilla of model ships and submarines from the Mary Rose to HMS Invincible.


Because of our bespoke manufacturing abilities, Apex approached Unibox to help bring their creative concept to life.

Combining technical design and our in-house machinery, including bending machines and custom cutting, together we created the perfect stand for the training centre.


Bespoke manufacturing skills and cutting-edge machinery, meant that from brief to completion we helped Apex to meet their client’s needs.

Creating an adaptation of the Metro Portable Display System, the result was a flexible, reconfigurable, and robust graphic display solution that can be used for years to come.

However, just as importantly, our partnership approach ensured that Apex's creative vision was brought to life, maintaining their brand vision every step of the way.
