Competency management system in use at Hinkley Point C

Mosaic helps Costain deliver on marine tunnelling project at Hinkley Point C

Costain, one of the UK’s leading engineering solutions providers, is delighted be a major contract partner in the construction of the new Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset. Costain has started work and will provide the design and delivery of the water cooling systems for the nuclear power station.

Costain will design and construct three marine tunnels, around 11km in total length and each one approximately seven metres in diameter, to take in cooling water from the Severn Estuary for the nuclear reactor before it is cleansed, recycled and returned. They will also be building a jetty at the site.

Mosaic Management Systems will provide an on-line competency management system to support site management on this project. A 500+ strong workforce will be deployed on this phase of the project. Mosaic has been working with Costain now for a number of years, which means data can be migrated across from previous projects that Mosaic has been deployed on. The unique ability of the Mosaic system is that it has a ‘Network Passport’ allowing relevant work details to be transferred across, thus saving considerable time during set up of a new project.

John Micciche MD of Mosaic said “We have worked with Costain on numerous projects now and we are extremely pleased that they have chosen us once again, particularly on such a ground-breaking project.”

A14 represents a huge Joint Venture projects in the constrction sector

A14 Extension – Online Competency & Site Management Systems making this more than just a road

A14 represents a huge Joint Venture projects in the constrction sector
A14 represents a huge Joint Venture project that will entail complex management processes between its partners

The government has now committed up to £1.5 billion investment to improve the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon and Mosaic Management Systems is at the heart of this project with its integrated site management software. This vital road upgrade will eventually relieve congestion, unlock growth and help to connect communities.

The project includes a major new bypass to the south of Huntingdon, widening part of the existing A14 between Swavesey and Girton, widening part of the A14 Cambridge northern bypass, widening a section of the A1 between Brampton and Alconbury and demolition of the A14 viaduct at Huntingdon.

The Joint Venture consortium that was awarded the contract comprises of Costain, Skanska, Balfour Beatty, Carillion, Atkins and CH2M. The Integrated Delivery Team (IDT) represented by Highways England and the six major contractors wanted to use the services of a single online platform to manage its site access, working practises and employee training, whereby contractors were issued with site cards working in conjunction with Smart Phone Apps and PDA hand held devices.

The IDT have stated from the outset that their aims is to deliver an exemplar project across the board for its client. Following on from a rigorous tender process that was seeking an innovative solution for site management, the Mosaic suite of products was chosen. The system was favoured over other solutions because it provides the client with a flexible and unique online platform to record all contractor activity on site encompassing Induction Management, CMS/Skill Gap analysis, fatigue & risk management, access integration, assessment & training, and stock & asset control via issued smart cards.

Mosaic Management Systems Managing Director John Micciche commented by saying:
