"Brilliantly done. What an outstanding performance. You did what
you agreed to do, you did it on time, and to the right quality
levels. In addition the level and standard of daily reporting has
been a model for others to follow on similar critical projects.
What's more, you did the work to a programme which was revised at
the last moment and using equipment never deployed at HPB before."
