Remote Applications in Challenging Environments (RACE)

It will be a key centre for implementing the Government’s Robotics and Autonomous Systems strategy, which aims to equip the UK to compete in this emerging global industry.
  • Client:
    Culham Centre for Fusion Energy / Willmott Dixon

  • Location:
    Oxfordshire

  • Project Value:
    £6,000,000

  • Services Provided:
    Civil & Structural Engineering Consultancy Services

  • Added Value:
    The incumbent engineers design featured a fully piled substructure and ground floor slab. CWA were able to redesign these elements enabling a ground bearing slab and traditional foundations to be utilised. CWA’s revised design created over £500,000 of savings to the overall project cost.
