For over 30 years, we have been delivering decommissioning and waste management solutions to the UK nuclear industry.
We pride ourselves on delivering simple solutions to the nuclear industry’s most complex challenges. Our engineers and project teams focus on fulfilling our clients’ requirements, drawing on a wealth of experience to develop proactive and pragmatic results.
Our Consultancy Services team contains some of the world’s leading specialists in waste management, environmental services and strategy development. With a varied skill base that includes graduate, postgraduate and PhD scientists, we offer a unique understanding of regulatory requirements.
Our site-based project teams deliver safe and cost-effective solutions. We provide a wide range of SQEP resources, including our multi-skilled decommissioning and health physics teams, and focus on working collaboratively to optimise delivery and bring savings to each stage of the project’s life cycle.
From R&D to waste management and land remediation, we are experts in each stage of the nuclear decommissioning project life cycle.
We operate within some of the UK’s most hazardous facilities, collaborating with our clients and supply chain partners to overcome challenges and deliver optimum decommissioning solutions.
We have successfully delivered land remediation projects of various sizes and complexities, ensuring the highest standards of safety whilst also engaging support and understanding from wider stakeholders.
With 8,725 metres squared of work area, our technical facilities are specifically set up to deliver R&D and testing services to the UK nuclear industry.
Our laboratory, which can be found at our head office in Chorley, allows us to support our client’s development work in a cost-effective manner by carrying out scaled down, inactive work before moving to active work on site.
Our test rig halls house full-scale and prototype rigs to underpin technical solutions proposed by our clients. Based on the information provided through trials, our clients can move forward with confidence in their preferred option.
Our workshop facility is configured to carry out integrated works testing for modular equipment prior to deployment on site. Boasting a height of 20m and a 20-tonne crane, our workshop can house projects of any size.
We strive to not only meet but exceed our customers’ expectations by performing to the highest standards throughout our business.
We have an excellent safety record and are proactive in promoting safety culture throughout all activities at all NSG and client sites. In 2018, we were awarded the RoSPA President’s Award, which followed on from 12 consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards and a Sector Award for Research and Development. As part of our commitment to continual improvement, we benchmarked ourselves against the best in industry in the British Safety Council (BSC) Five Star Audit in 2015 and were awarded Five Stars. Later that year, we were one of just 61 organisations worldwide that were awarded a BSC Sword of Honour for demonstrating excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work.
We have systems in place that are certificated to OHSAS 18001:2007 and are continuously reviewed and updated to ensure that we continue to meet all regulatory, legal and client requirements while improving our health and safety performance. All staff at all levels participate in safety walkrounds and senior managers participate in the audit programme as we constantly inspect, audit and measure our performance to identify where we can improve. Health and safety are key performance indicators within our business and we have an improvement programme which sets targets that continuously challenge our processes and procedures.
We are committed to providing the highest possible standard of service to all stakeholders. To ensure that this is achieved, we have systems in place that are certificated to ISO 9001:2015 and are continuously reviewed and updated to ensure that we continue to meet all regulatory, legal and client requirements while improving our health and safety performance.

We recognise our responsibility to preserve and protect the environment and are committed to continuously improving our environmental performance. We have systems in place that are certificated to ISO 14001:2015 and are continuously reviewed and updated to ensure that we continue to meet all regulatory and legal requirements while improving our environmental management. All work we undertake is assessed for environmental impact and, where that is the case, suitable controls are put in place to remove or minimise the impact. We also work with other stakeholders in the supply chain to help raise environmental awareness and to improve combined performance. Protection of the environment is a key performance indicator within our business and we have an improvement programme which sets targets that continuously challenge our processes and procedures.
