Manager of the Year Finalists Brian Coslett

Overseas brief

'Create interfaces so that you can manage them,' said Coslett who managed the ú45M ($74.25M) Ganol Wastewater Treatment Scheme - the largest environmental improvement scheme ever undertaken in North Wales. Coslett claimed that by selecting 30 contractors, 10 civil and 20 mechanical and electrical, he was able to maintain a high level of control throughout the project while achieving full commitment from the teams on all areas of the scheme. Intensive collaboration between the designers and contractors ensured the 22 month programme to design, build and commission the works was met.

Asked what he would do differently if he had to do it again, Coslett said he would introduce an incentive scheme for designers, similar to the one that was in place for the contractors, and certainly wouldn't try to give up smoking during the job.
