AWE – Project Orion

, ,

We facilitated the collaboration between the client and main contractor, and expedited phased handovers on this new £160m laser research facility to achieve a critical reputational milestone on behalf on the MoD.

The Atomic Weapons Establishment is responsible for delivering the Trident Missile programme on behalf of the Ministry of Defence, with Project Orion, a £160m international laser research facility, critical to the delivery of the programme.

The main contractor was significantly behind schedule and there was an urgent requirement to permit access to the specialist M&E installer to ensure a reputational milestone was achieved on behalf of the MoD.

We led the client project team and facilitated close collaboration and co-operation with the main contractor and supply chain to prioritise a phased handover of completed areas.

The equipment installation commenced on schedule and we achieved the Milestone, negotiating a financial settlement of variation changes and the contractor’s final account within revised Business budgets.
