Through our extensive involvement at Sellafield we have developed a combined design and construction expertise which includes a number of staff who have attained the specific qualifications and experience required for working in the civil nuclear environment.

Since our first construction project at Sellafield in July 1983 we have had the opportunity to become involved in the front-end development of projects, carrying out constructability studies to support the design teams.

Since our initial contract in 1983, more than 90% of those employed on the various projects we have delivered at the plant have been from the local area.

On the Sellafield Sealine Pipebridge refurbishment project we worked closely with the client and other stakeholders to ensure the risk of pollution to the nearby salmon and sea trout stream was avoided. We also implemented measures to protect wildlife including adders, slowworms and natterjack toads.

The company was involved in providing both immediate and long-term assistance to the people of nearby Cockermouth following the devastating floods of 2009.

Our health and safety performance has been recognised with a number of awards. We have completed more than two million man hours at the Cumbria plant without a RIDDOR reportable accident and have also received Gold & Merit RoSPA Awards.
