Established in 1987, North West Projects is a multi-discipline engineering design and project management consultancy, focused on providing a safe, high quality and cost-effective professional services. The company started out with a small team of CE&I Engineers and over time has increased its capability by diversifying into additional areas including mechanical engineering design and project management.  Since 2005, the company has grown from a small team of 13 to over 150 engineers and designers, all of whom are SQEP (a Suitably Qualified and Experienced Person). Our head office is located in Chorley, and we have a second office in Whitehaven, Cumbria.

Our primary focus has been on the provision of mechanical and CE&I engineering design services to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), especially at Sellafield. In recent years we have diversified into the defence and nuclear new build markets, working on projects of national strategic importance. In addition, with our industry partners, we provide HVAC, CS&A, Industrial Process Engineering and Asset Management services. We cover the full project life cycle, from initial front end concept design, all the way through to support of commissioning the final product. We utilise the latest 2D and 3D design packages, computational modelling, and stress analysis, together with rigorous compliance and engineering checks throughout the project stages.

In recent years North West Projects has successfully undertaken and delivered over 3000 projects of values from £10,000 to over £10,000,000. Our portfolio of projects undertaken include many that are part of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authorities most challenging projects.
