JBA Bentley and JN Bentley have recently been appointed to the Coal Authority’s new Mine Water Treatment Civil Engineering, Refurbishment and Minor Works framework.
JBA Bentley is one of two design and build partners appointed on the Coal Authority’s new framework to deliver works over £1m. This will include both the design and construction of new mine water treatment sites and major refurbishment works to existing sites.
JN Bentley was also named one of seven partners who will deliver projects worth up to £1m, involving minor works and upgrades to existing treatment sites.
The new framework will continue until 2024, with works on site expected to commence later this year. This contract award is the first awarded to JBA Bentley but marks JN Bentley’s fourth consecutive long-term framework with the Coal Authority after securing a place on their ENVision I framework back in 2004.
The Authority manages the legacy of the UK’s coal industry, looking after coal and metal mining sites to prevent pollution. Over the past 16 years JN Bentley have delivered a range of projects, often tackling challenging engineering problems to deliver safe and innovative solutions to treat the UK’s mine water. Previous works have involved the construction of new treatment facilities, cascades, lagoons and reed beds to structural repairs and refurbishment works.
