Katherine Bew, PCSG’s Managing Director, is interviewed in this month’s New Civil Engineer, one of the sector’s leading titles with a circulation of nearly 48,000.
The piece gives an engaging overview of PCSG’s beginnings, in 2000, our diverse workstreams and our reach across the industry into projects as diverse as HS2 and Outcome-Based Contracting (OBC) at Sellafield – the UK’s largest and most complex nuclear site.
In the article, Katherine explains that “the key role for PCSG is to use leading-edge data and process techniques to drive maximum value at all stages of the asset lifecycle.”
Talking about her work with Sellafield, she says it is a “privilege” to be part of the team which has developed a new contractual mechanism which has the potential to accelerate the delivery of remediation works at the nuclear processing plant, at best value for the taxpayer.
She explains how “we have taken our high-performance team model, which introduces the three key collaboration activities: proactive risk management, joint problem solving and learning leading to improvement.”
Describing PCSG’s role with HS2, the article explains: “..There it (PCSG) is working on a..cutting-edge project to deliver a platform that unites all the data being held in the mega-project’s plethora of work packages.”
On the organisation’s growth plans, Katherine says in the piece that the aim is to recruit around 12 people to the team during this year, adding: “We will only grow and develop if we can find people with the right values, behaviours and capabilities that mean we remain technically outstanding.”
