The AECOM Nuclear EC&I Team provide multi-disciplinary consultancy to the nuclear industry in both the nuclear new build and decommissioning sectors. In the new build sector, we are providing engineering support to the Developers of the UK’s fleet of new nuclear power stations. In the Decommissioning Sector, which requires considerable new build to enable decommissioning, AECOM provides support to the entire Nuclear Estate, including:
Multidisciplinary design support for various key nuclear clients.
Design and development of waste storage and disposal facilities
Multidisciplinary design support to defense projects.
An example project is for a client (name withheld) to design and build a completely new facility, including all site surveys, infrastructure planning, equipment integration from concept design to completed building with a very short time from design to build. The project utilised modular technology built to our designs and integrated together to give an extremely flexible and fast solution to our customers problems.
The project challenged the Nuclear Industry’s traditional approach to building & infrastructure design, installation and commissioning reducing the onsite labour intensive work, moving the risk to offsite build and commissioning. Utilising the latest in CAD & BIM technology to bring all the disciplines together seamlessly, ensuring all the designs of each discipline work harmoniously. Using this approach to accelerated design and build but without restricting the safety within the design has led to AECOM winning some significant infrastructure projects.
