13 June 2019
Costain, the smart infrastructure solutions company, has opened a new technology centre in Worle, North Somerset, which will develop and deliver technology solutions for clients in its key markets.
The Group has invested £3.5 million in the new centre which will be home to some 150 people, who will provide services to clients including solutions engineering, product development manufacturing and maintenance as well as digital systems integration.
The new facility has been designed with collaboration at the forefront. A virtual reality suite allows users to digitally submerge themselves in concepts and test designs while providing virtual reality connection to the Group nationwide. State-of-the-art 4k screens dominate the space allowing a fully immersive experience for staff and visitors. The architectural design enables interaction between all disciplines and provides a large amount of communal breakout spaces and configurable demonstration areas for creative thinking.
Alex Vaughan, chief executive officer, said, “We started our technology investment in 2016 when we bought SSL based in Yatton. By investing in this new facility, we are continuing to support the growth of our digital technology services. Working in a cutting-edge environment will enable us to build our skills and deliver the best solutions for our clients.”
