The operations site works framework is the successor to the MDSW & SWAC frameworks, to support reprocessing through to conclusion, hence the contract being let on a 3+1 basis from July 2017.

The key premise for the OneAIM Joint venture (an unincorporated JV between Jacobs & Interserve), is to deliver multidisciplinary site construction services (civil, mechanical, electrical) across the OUs and categorised projects value streams; in either jobs, tasks or major projects. OSW currently numbers c320 blue collar and 110 white collar personnel.

Since inception, the framework has delivered c£90M of completed works, with a significant framework focus on driving collaborative working principles (as delivery partners) and returning significant benefits realisation, by securing either cost certainty, cost reduction or cost avoidance via a make / buy approach, utilising our developed JV supply chain with reach back into the JV parent organisations.

Additional value is gained via early engagement in the 'prep & plan' phases of site activity, by finding better tools and better methods for constructability - on which to plan, coordinate and subsequently deliver the correct solution. All whilst meeting the site licence and framework requirements for nuclear safety, and the age-old project delivery trilemma of time, cost and quality - safely.
