Endorsements

Through endorsements, our Partners and Clients have shared their views on 4D’s performance.

‘A truly collaborative and integrated model that has continued to challenge its performance in every aspect, setting an industry leading benchmark for safety, developing truly innovative solutions and never failing to deliver a regulatory output ontime since its creation.

4D has always recognised the importance of people to its success, creating a positive culture through behavioural awareness and exceptional leadership, ultimately producing an empowered workforce providing discretionary effort for the good of the whole, rather than the individual.

Many outstanding people have been recruited and developed by 4D over the years and this legacy is to the benefit of us all’.
Andrew Wyllie
CEO, Costain Group
(April 2014)

‘We have been really impressed by the commitment, dedication and professionalism of everyone working on the project, and the true sense of partnering between all those involved.

This is not just our view, but also that of the many bodies that have bestowed national awards on 4D, which the team should be – and are – exceptionally proud of. The legacy of 4D achievements over the last 10 years will live-on long after the completion of the AMP5 programme, to the wider benefit of the UK water industry’.
Olivier Bret
CEO – Water Veolia UK & Ireland
(April 2014)

‘Right from the start the 4D team has really engaged in the challenge to deliver almost half of Southern Water’s capital investment programme and has maintained the momentum over the 10 years of AMP4 and AMP5.

4D has been characterised by strong leadership and an energetic approach to delivery. The ability to bring three companies, with their own unique methods, procedures, processes, ambitions and behaviours together and establish a unique and identifiable culture is a credit to everyone involved.

4D has been a ‘star performer’ in the UK water industry, successfully achieving all delivery outputs on time with exemplary health, safety and environmental
performance.’
Dan McConville
President – Business Solutions MWH
(April 2014)

‘Through a collaborative working relationship and exceptional customer service, you have become an extension of our brand and helped build and maintain strong links with the communities we serve.

Alongside a continuous commitment to delivering high quality construction projects on time and on budget, your support of local charities and community initiatives has left behind a legacy far greater than simply better  infrastructure.

It should also be remembered that, in an industry recognised for commitment to and innovation in health & safety, we have seen exceptional safe working practices implemented, promoted and maintained across all 4D sites.

In short, you have adopted an exemplary partnership approach to successfully deliver our investment programme and I would like to thank all of you at 4D for playing your part in this.’
Matthew Wright
CEO, Southern Water
(April 2014)
