A new report launched today is calling for a "recruitment revolution" in the talent supply chain as the engineering sector gets ready to deliver the next generation of infrastructure projects.
Costain, the engineering solutions provider, has been awarded a contract worth £113 million by National Grid to upgrade its Peterborough and Huntingdon compressor stations. The programme of work is part of National Grid’s Emissions Reduction Project and will conclude in 2021.
Costain, the engineering solutions provider, has been awarded the South Enabling Works Contract for High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd (‘HS2’). The award, made to Costain in Joint Venture (‘JV’) with Skanska, is worth up to £150m to the Group over four years.
A six-year Costain jv scheme to help re-wire London, the London Power Tunnels (LPT) project, is the most significant addition to the capital’s electricity system since the 1960s. The scheme will create 10 new 400kV transmission circuits deep underground, replacing and reinforcing the existing network.
A specialist team of companies have come together as part of their commitment to deliver an approved decommissioning programme under one collaborative offering. Integrated DECOM will offer independent front-end engineering and environmental solutions providing integrated support for oil and gas operators looking to retire redundant facilities without the burden of an in-house overhead.
Yesterday started on a great note for many engineers, students and children alike as the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) marked the opening of its new exhibition and learning centre by breaking a Guinness World Record for the span of a bridge made out of LEGO bricks.
