No design is perfect, and DMS acknowledged that innovative concepts face more challenges than most.
The arrangement of hatches and vertical ladders restricted the possible locations of the deckhouse. This resulted in placing the deckhouse without any supporting bulkheads underneath, which is not ideal. The deckhouse can be supported by deep frames and confirmed by FEA analysis. But further design refinement would ideally place supporting bulkheads under the deckhouse.
