Asset Recovery Programme of Works

  • Client: The Environment Agency
  • Delivered by: JBA Bentley
  • Location: Yorkshire and North Anglian Region
  • Value: £20m+ (over three years)

In 2016, the Environment Agency awarded us a one-year extension to our Asset Repair Programme of Works (ARPW), taking it through to October 2018.

The extension is reward for the hard work and dedication of the teams involved in the framework since its inception in October 2014. They have developed great relationships with the client, delivering safe, efficient and sustainable solutions across a large geographical area.

The ARPW is largely focused on improving the condition of flood defences that protect properties, critical infrastructure and prime agricultural land from both fluvial and tidal flooding.

Both teamwork and leadership have been essential to the successful delivery of a challenging programme. Key too has been the streamlining and pooling of construction activities and resources, driving a reduction in costs, delivery duration and carbon footprint.

The East Midlands branch of the Institution of Civil Engineers presented JBA Bentley with a Team Achievement commendation at their 2016 awards.
