AECOM operates to deliver a better world. We design, build, finance and operate infrastructure assets for governments, businesses and organizations in more than 150 countries. As a fully integrated firm, we connect knowledge and experience across our global network of experts to help clients solve their most complex challenges. From high-performance buildings and infrastructure, to resilient communities and environments, to stable and secure nations, our work is transformative, differentiated and vital.

The AECOM Nuclear Engineering Team at Warrington provide multi-disciplinary consultancy to the nuclear industry, Ministry of Defence and other such security classified clients. Providing consultancy services to the nuclear new build, decommissioning sectors, MoD facilities, ITER and the DIO. Our Warrington office support and provide many different consultancy services to many different diverse clients including:

  • Defence sector providing multi-disciplinary new build support to various clients
  • MoD supporting the Nuclear Submarine fleet providing new facilities around the UK
  • Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO)
  • Army and RAF Infrastructure (worldwide)
  • Embassy and associated worldwide assets
  • Nuclear new build sector where we are providing engineering support to the developers of the UK’s fleet of new nuclear power stations
  • Decommissioning Sector, which requires considerable new build to enable decommissioning, where AECOM provides support to the entire Nuclear Estate.

An example project for a confidential client was 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 client.

The project challenged the Nuclear Industry’s traditional approach to building & infrastructure design, installation and commissioning, reducing the onsite labour intensive work, and moving the risk to offsite build and commissioning. Utilising the latest in CAD & BIM technology we brought all the disciplines together seamlessly, ensuring all the designs of each discipline work harmoniously.
