Environmental engineering company JBA Bentley has been selected as one of thirteen contractors that will deliver a £70 million civil engineering programme in Wales.
Starting this year, the four year framework with client Natural Resources Wales will see JBA Bentley deliver coastal and river defence schemes in the south of the country.
After successfully securing a place on Lot 1 South, JBA Bentley will focus on delivering complex civil engineering works such as: flood embankments constructed from earthworks, rock armouring and geotextile materials; floodwater retention structures and reservoirs; pumping stations; and trash screens.
JBA Bentley Limited is a joint venture between JN Bentley and JBA Consulting, established in 2013. The partnership brings together the specialist skills and expertise of two firms: civil engineering contractor JN Bentley and environmental consultant and designer JBA Consulting.
Natural Resources Wales is a Welsh Government Sponsored Body, responsible for ensuring that the environment and natural resources of Wales are sustainably maintained, sustainably enhanced and sustainably used, now and in the future.
The principle of sustainability is shared by JBA Bentley and over the lifetime of this framework there will be a focus on keeping project expenditure within Wales through the use of local labour and materials, establishing regional supply chains, and promoting the sustainability and community benefits of projects.
JBA Bentley is well positioned to deliver this framework. JBA’s existing office in Newport means that we have a strong regional presence and our track record of delivering projects for National Resources Wales, such as the Crindau Pill Flood Alleviation Scheme, means that we have a good understanding of the needs of our client and the communities they serve.
