Costain in the spotlight
Earlier this year, the National Audit Office (NAO) reported that more than a third of major government projects due to be completed over the next five years were at risk of failure. Costain, which has recently acquired management consultancy Rhead Group, hosted a round table with New Civil Engineer to discuss the barriers to effort to move these projects forward.
Cameron Tonkin and Tim Embley make an interesting double act. It would be no exaggeration to say that Costain’s director for advisory services and the firm’s group innovation and knowledge manager respectively represent the transformation that is taking place at the company.
