Costain helps to improve people’s lives by deploying technology-based engineering solutions to meet urgent national needs across the UK’s energy, water and transportation infrastructures.
The Decommissioning Delivery Partnership (DDP) Framework:
The DDP programme has been initiated to accelerate risk and hazard reduction at the Sellafield site. DDP has been primarily for the decommissioning programmes of Remediation including POCO, FGMSP, MSSS, PFSP, PFCS, Calder, and Waste. The DDP has been grouped into three lots, with LDP(s) awarded specific to the anticipated scope of each lot. Costain is one of four consortiums within Lot 1.
The objectives of Lot 1 are to replace the existing Decommissioning Framework Agreement 2 (DFA2) and Multi-Disciplined Site Works (MDSW) frameworks; and build upon the success of these going forward over an extended term and to increase the level of collaboration and opportunities available to the selected contractors within the Programmes across Decommissioning at Sellafield.
The DDP contract is a 5yr+5yr NEC3 contract, work in Lot 1 is distributed to one of four LDPs. Work less than £5m is awarded via a work allocation process. Work greater than £5m is tendered via the mini-Tender collaborative procurement process.
The DDP Framework Agreement utilises the NEC3
