COSTAIN GROUP FILM & PHOTO LIBRARY

Description
The Library started life as a film unit in the 1920s, when Costain was primarily engaged in house building. As the Group’s operations have expanded and diversified, so the Library’s stock of films and videos has grown. Footage, shot mainly on film around the world, covers the Group’s operations in mining, civil and process engineering and construction.
