John Large was an internationally recognised professional consulting engineer. He published reports on the safety of nuclear plants and processes, irradiated fuel and nuclear weapons transport, insurance, risks and risk management, on decommissioning of large-scale nuclear facilities, radioactive emissions and discharges, and the safety of nuclear reactor propulsion units at sea.
Following John’s death in November 2018, we were asked to ensure the content of his website was preserved.
A new site, The John Large Archive, was created to provide an archive for researchers and campaigners to access a wide range of John’s reports.
The site was customised from our LGD Callanish base theme. As well as styling modifications, a custom File Links block was created.
While the reports themselves are academic and technical, we retained John’s quirky turns of phrase, particularly in the News Snippets section.
