CIRIA welcomes Costain to Membership


CIRIA is pleased to announce that engineering solutions company, Costain, has joined CIRIA membership.

Costain deploys technology based solutions to meet national needs across the UK’s energy, water and transportation infrastructures. Costain is already involved in a number of CIRIA activities, with representatives from the organisation sitting on a number of our advisory panels across the theme areas. They are also funders of two of CIRIA's new projects, Delivering well-being on site and Use of UAVs for infrastructure management.

Bill Hewlett, Technical Director, Costain; “We’re very pleased to join CIRIA. We want to improve lives and enhance environmental performance by helping take the industry’s agenda forward in areas such as designing our built environment as a circular economy and best use of technology to improve efficiency and reliability. Our industry can’t afford to offer only construction services anymore; we need to offer a fuller suite of end to end services that cover all the stages of a built asset, from initial concept design to decommissioning and recycling. We look forward to working with our peers in the CIRIA network to achieve this.”

Dirk Vennix, Chief Executive at CIRIA commented;
“On behalf of CIRIA I would like to extend a warm welcome to our newest members Costain. We look forward to working closely with them and supporting them in continuing to lead industry in raising professional standards and practice; as well as providing ample opportunities for innovation and business development and improvement through our wide-ranging network programme and good practice guidance.”

CIRIA’s members come from all construction stakeholder groups and cover both the supply and demand side of the indsutry, as well as the public sector, regulators and academia. Check out our full list of Members on the website here or visit our Member spotlight page to find out more.
