Project Management and Support

Planning & Monitoring

Our Planning Department combines the latest techniques with experienced personnel.

Complex projects are regularly planned in detailed schedule format. Detailed output reports are generated providing project teams and clients with vital “real time” status information.

Earned value management forms the basis of Cammell Laird’s project monitoring system, which over the course of a number of years we have refined to support the type of bespoke projects regularly undertaken.
Project Management

The strength of our Project Management team lies in both their vast experience and detailed technical knowledge.

Without exception, all of our key personnel are drawn from the shipbuilding industry or are formerly senior seagoing personnel.

Many of our managers have detailed trade specialisations, allowing these key competences to be brought to that particular aspect of the project. This allows the precise interpretation of technical and statutory information for maximum efficiency.

The ethos of our Project teams is that of engaging in a partnership approach with clients, maximising transparency and co-operation. This in our considerable experience is the best way to guarantee efficient project delivery.

Technical Support

Our specialist technical team provides Naval Architecture, Structural, Systems and Mechanical design support to our Project Department. This aspect is crucial for the delivery of projects from concept to completion and allows the yard to offer turnkey design & build projects.

In addition to its design function the team also has considerable experience in novel production engineering methods in the fields of heavy lifting, heavy transport and installation of large ship sections and equipment.


With respect to security measures, Cammell Laird is fully ISPS compliant as per the statutory requirements of TRANSEC.

Health and Safety Systems

Cammell Laird give safety the highest priority in its corporate governance and operational activities.

We have developed a practical and safe system of work based around a proactive Permit to Work System which is borne out by the company’s exemplary safety statistics.

Safety arrangements satisfy statutory regulations and have been audited and approved on numerous MoD and Offshore Projects.

Quality Assurance & Control

The company has ISO9001:2000 certification for its Management Systems awarded by BVQI.

Whilst maintaining the fundamental management systems laid down in our Quality plan, the company is flexible in its approach and, working with the client, delivers bespoke packages to the individual customer’s needs- different operators require very different types of reporting and content.

An important measure of our Quality Assurance is that we are a UK Ministry of Defence approved contractor.
