JN Bentley secures major new civil engineering contract

JN Bentley has been appointed to a major new civil engineering contract with the Canal & River Trust.


As part of an arrangement lasting up to ten years, JN Bentley will deliver complex works across the north of the Trust’s network of historic waterways and assets.


The only contractor appointed to work on complex assets on the north of the Trust’s network, the framework will see JN Bentley deliver significant repair and restoration projects at reservoirs, embankments, culverts, tunnels and aqueducts.


The arrangement will also mean JN Bentley is on hand to respond to instances of flooding or canal breaches.


The Canal & River Trust cares for and brings to life 2,000 miles of canals and river navigations across England & Wales; this framework represents one of the largest waterway engineering contracts they have ever awarded, with a potential total value of £500m.


The contract has been awarded off the back of a thorough tender process during which JN Bentley demonstrated its ability to deliver projects safely, efficiently, and sustainably - evidenced through its experience working with the likes of the Environment Agency and multiple clients across the regulated water sector.


Ian Bester, JN Bentley operations director, said: “We are delighted to be appointed to this new framework with the Canal & River Trust – an important new client for us and one that provides a fantastic opportunity to be involved with preserving and enhancing the industrial and natural heritage of the country.


“Securing the framework will allow us to bring our transferrable skills developed from 50 years of experience in the water and environment sectors. We’ll focus on collaborating with the Trust and their partners to deliver safe, sustainable, high quality and innovative solutions for users of waterways across the UK.


“We look forward to forging a long-term relationship together and helping Canal & River Trust continue to make life better by water.”

This will be the first time JN Bentley and the Canal & River Trust have worked together, and follows soon after JN Bentley’s appointment to frameworks with another new client, Associated British Ports, announced earlier this year.
