In the decommissioning sector we have a strong and varied portfolio of experience covering the differing phases of the decommissioning process including Peer Review & Verification, Late Life Planning, Operations and Maintenance Support, Risk Management, Current Condition Verification, Strategy Development, Regulatory Support, FEED Management & Delivery, Detailed Design and Programme & Project Management.
In a market where collaboration continues to deliver value, Costain was the first engineering and construction company to achieve BSI 11000 certification for ‘Collaborative Business Relationships’. By following the requirements of BS11000, Costain’s collaborative working approach now goes far beyond a traditional approach. Costain can now routinely:
- Measure trust during the life of a relationship
- Understand both parties cultural and business fit
- Apply risk management to the relationship
- Have clear accountability for the effectiveness of the relationship
- Understand and develop individual’s collaborative skill sets
- Measure the beneficial output from the relationship
We are engaged in work across multiple sectors where collaborative working is the norm and the cross sector learning is fundamental to success. The practice of nuclear decommissioning has been growing since the 1940s, and aviation and aerospace decommissioning has also operated for many years. Within those sectors alone, there is much experience to be utilised and drawn upon; Costain are ideally positioned to support this.
There is a clear benefit to industry cross fertilisation and Costain is positioned to offer this capability.
