Projects range from straight forward modifications to complex process plants which are integrated into existing facilities. Effective designs with attention to detail pay even greater dividends when site works are limited by nuclear site operating constraints, and it is in these areas that our approach is becoming increasingly recognised and valued.
There are a number of areas where we can demonstrate the ability to produce cost effective, yet robust design solutions within the nuclear sector, these include;
Members of our team are security cleared for the sites we work on and are familiar with the stringent security requirements associated with data security. We are also regularly audited by our clients to ensure that these high security standards are maintained. We are approved by British Energy to handle restricted documents where required.
We are proud to be a framework designers for both Springfields Fuels Limited and Urenco Capenhurst.

Compressed Air Headers Springfields Fuels 12 weeks Design of replacement compressed air pipework system Springfields Fuels Ltd identified during routine inspection that the header pipework on their site compressed air supply system was in need of replacement. GHA Livigunn were asked to design replacement pipe headers such that the new pipes could be installed with the existing system operational, and the change-over could be completed without significant interruption to the more

Bypass of existing damaged , buried, fibreglass more
Nitric Acid Wash Facility Springfields Fuels / Boultings Nuclear £3m Design services contract 40 weeks Civil briefing, structural & mechanical engineering design, commissioning support The detailed design of a Nitric acid wash facility to enable the decontamination of waste generated on plant. The design involved the routing of 1200m of highly complex small diameter pipe work in an existing confined area. The project also included plant and equipment layout. The design of the more
Torness Reactor 1 Reactor Sea Water (RSW) Pipework Replacement British Energy / Boulting Nuclear £850k British Energy conditions of contract for supply or repair and installation of plant (2005). 30 weeks Civil , Structural & Mechanical Engineering Design, Stress Analysis and Seismic Qualification Replacement of Reactor 1 RSW pump pipework and Minus 9 level distribution pipework for quadrants A, B, C & D in HDPE. Due to the aggressive nature of the sea water the more
