As part of Magnox’s decommissioning programme, Interserve, the international support services and construction group, was appointed as the sole Tier 2 contractor to design and build highly-engineered industrial grade interim storage facilities (ISF) to offer protection for Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) containers until the geological disposal facility is available. This involved the development of a scalable design for facilities to store intermediate-level waste held in ductile iron containers, and then the construction of  such facilities on separate sites, with variable ground conditions. ISFs of varying sizes, but similar in design, were built at Bradwell and Berkeley.

Caunton worked alongside Interserve and their technical team to develop the schemes through Basis of Design to Design Substantiation including the design of the steelwork for the structural frames for all the ISF’s planned to be built within this programme.
