Project summary

Described as being of “national importance”, the £80 million Core Production Capability (CPC) Regeneration Project is an instrumental redevelopment programme for Rolls Royce’s Nuclear Fuel Production Plant (NFPP) in Derby.

Phased in its delivery, and completed over five years, the CPC Project incorporated the regeneration of multiple, time-expired manufacturing and support facilities to enhance Rolls-Royce’s world leading nuclear manufacturing capability

The detail

As Rolls Royce’s major redevelopment programme for its Raynesway Nuclear Fuel Production Plant, CPC comprised the phased regeneration of multiple projects including the demolition of the existing Operations Management Centre, and the construction of a range of new steel framed buildings consisting of a Reception Building, Energy Centre, Product Assembly Building and a 7200m2 Manufacturing Facility.

With a safety first focus, our technically excellent team completed the Project, which included the assembly of 1200 tonnes of steel, and the manipulation of 24,600m3 of cut earthwork material, in over 1 million RIDDOR free ‘man-hours’.

Complex crane lifts were required, as well as the efficient delivery of ancillary works encompassing the management of the manufacturing process and the integration of plant and equipment.

The introduction of innovative technology, like the Autodesk 360 field application, and a commitment to environmental sustainability, showcased in the utilisation of CFA piles to eliminate noise, represented added-value facets of our award-winning delivery.

"The Rolls Royce facility is a nationally important project. However, more importantly than that it is also hugely important to the local community in which it resides. By engaging with local people, ensuring safety on-site and making sure that the construction process has a minimal effect on the environment we are able to deliver top quality schemes for our clients and local communities"
