Innovation Evening For Customers

25 September 2013

A building that documents the march of evolution was, appropriately, the site for a Costain event that highlighted the latest innovations the Company is accelerating to market.

The Darwin Centre in London’s Natural History Museum was host venue to a Customer Innovations Evening last night [Tuesday 24 September], showcasing exciting products and developments that the Group has brought to fruition over the past year.

The audience consisted of over 60 customers and key stakeholders, who were able to talk to the Costain personnel behind the innovations, discovering the benefits of individual innovations and how they could improve the performance of their business.

The event demonstrated Costain’s Engineering Tomorrow strategy in action, which focuses on identifying, developing and implementing innovative solutions to the unmet needs of our customers.

“We had over 30 innovation leaders from around the business demonstrating various innovations we’ve been developing.  This included advanced process technology, power generation, remote monitoring of assets, workforce management and talent development,” said Group Innovation and Knowledge Manager, Tim Embley, who organised the event.

A keynote speech from Group Technical and Operations Director, Alan Kay, set the scene and stressed the importance of innovation in creating a sustainable future.

“The evening was very successful, we have received positive feedback and are now organising meetings with our customers to explore how we can incorporate more innovation in their operation," said Alan. "This provides an opportunity to demonstrate how we work closely with our customers, increase the range of new services we provide.”
