The Braidwater management team would like to publicly acknowledge Brian, Colin and their teams for their consistent high standards of work.’’

Both Brian and Colin were keen to acknowledge the efforts of their respective teams with a joint statement: “We would like to thank both teams, onsite and in the office, for their support, hard work and dedication, without which these awards would not be possible.’’
