“Wildara and Peter Bowden in particular, always performed at a very high level in a very demanding environment on and extremely complex project that was¬†characterised by diverse stakeholders, remote location with no organic workforce or support infrastructure such as materials supply and highly charged political situation of delivering a foreign government policy outcome in a country that was not receptive to this. Wildara managed all of these aspects as well as an underperforming Contractor to achieve client expectations around time, cost and quality.” –¬†A. Rankin – Technical Director, Government & Defence
