Professional services firm WYG has achieved ISO 44001 certification for its work on the Army Basing Programme (ABP) for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO)
ISO 44001 recognises collaborative business relationship management, with WYG the first project contractor to achieve this standard for a DIO major project enterprise.
WYG’s ISO 44001 certification was achieved through global certification body DNV GL.
Clive Anderson, Managing Director at WYG said: “Collaboration is at the heart of WYG’s approach to building client relationships. We are delighted to have achieved our first ISO 44001 certification through the Army Basing Programme (ABP) with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.
“Our collaborative working methodology has played an important role in the success of the Salisbury Plain Training Area Service Families Accommodation, one of the largest Army Basing projects undertaken so far in the UK.
“We look forward to strengthening our DIO collaboration with further ISO 44001- certified enterprises in 2019 as we work to become an industry leader in collaborative working.”
Mark Duddy, ABP Programme Director added: “I am thrilled that WYG have achieved the Collaborative Working standard while working on one of the ABP’s flagship projects the Salisbury Plain Training Area Service Families Accommodation project.
“This certification formally recognises our joint intention to work in a more collaborative manner to the benefit of the Army and the wider customer base of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation. Well done to all involved, this is richly deserved”
WYG’s collaborative working methodology on the ABP Salisbury Plain Housing Programme includes a joint relationship management plan and a joint partnering board, this enables the project partners to understand each other’s vision, values, and objectives.
