Costain to move to new technology centre in North Somerset
14 June 2018
Costain, the smart infrastructure solutions company, is expanding its technology centre with a move to new accommodation on the Weston Gateway Business Park near Worle, North Somerset.
By the end of the year, some 150 colleagues will have relocated from Yatton to the new business park just off junction 21 of the M5.
The Group acquired the current Yatton technology facility in 2016 and its operations have gone from strength to strength since then. From an initial focus on highways, providing technology solutions such as motorway signage, signalling and CCTV systems, Costain has broadened its activities and is now providing cutting edge technology solutions to clients across all its operations in water, transportation and energy.
This news comes on the back of a number of additional technology contract wins announced by the Group over the past month. They include the M6 J21a-26 smart motorway contract and Motorway Incident Detection and Automated Signalling (MIDAS) technology systems contract for Highways England.
Commenting on the move, Andrew Wyllie CBE, chief executive said:
“The further expansion of our technology capability through this enlarged Group-wide facility, is another important step towards establishing Costain as the UK’s leading smart infrastructure company.”
