JBA-Bentley is a joint venture between JN Bentley and Jeremy Benn Associates (JBA), established in 2013. The partnership brings together the specialist skills and expertise of the two firms: JN Bentley as a civil engineering contractor, and JBA as a water and environmental consultant and designer.   

Our team supplies the Environment Agency's Water and Environment Management (WEM) Framework through Lot 4: Asset Delivery.

Services include ECI, catchment modelling, specialist design, environmental and ecological guidance, and civil engineering construction works on anything from flood banks to pumping stations, culverts to sluice gates. 

Since our appointment in 2013, we have become an established and highly reputable framework supplier, supporting the EA and its partners during and after the winter floods to provide protection against flood and coastal erosion risks.

In 2014, JBA Bentley opened an office in Leeds City Centre, where both design and construction teams are co-located, and this was followed by the opening of a Peterborough office in July 2015.   

JBA Bentley’s place on WEM will run until June 2017, with an option of a further 2 years.
