Success for MMB and JBA Bentley after two big wins at British Construction Industry awards

Mott MacDonald Bentley and JBA Bentley have enjoyed a successful night at the prestigious British Construction Industry Awards (BCIAs).

JBA Bentley’s project at Mill Fleam Pumping Station was named Environmental Project of the Year, with the Strategic Pipeline Alliance (SPA) – on which MMB is a key partner - scooping the Carbon Net Zero Initiative of the Year Award.

The BCIAs celebrate the built environment sector, recognising excellence in project delivery and the hard work of clients, architects, designers, and contractors. Hosted in London, 20 winners were announced, with JN Bentley, MMB and JBA Bentley shortlisted across eight of them.

JBA Bentley’s Mill Fleam Pumping Station project was named Environmental Project of the Year.

JBA Bentley’s Mill Fleam Pumping Station project was named Environmental Project of the Year.

The project has provided the city of Derby with a new flood defence infrastructure asset, heightening protection of the city during heavy rainfall. Overcoming a number of challenging environmental factors, the project was contained in the city centre near a public park that contained bats, birds, and aquatic life.

Innovative augmented reality software was used during the work to assist with planning site operations and communicating the presence of buried services to site teams. The technology was beneficial as it provided an enhanced view of the existing site in photographic quality.

The BCIA judges were, “Impressed with the level of innovation, such as using augmented reality and it was clear that this contributed to the excellent delivery, safely and on programme.”

They also recognised a great outcome from a truly collaborative team.

The Strategic Pipeline Alliance (on which MMB is a key partner) also won the prestigious Carbon Net Zero Initiative of the Year Award.

The ambitious project is creating hundreds of kilometres of interconnecting mains and associated pumping equipment, to ensure the region is resilient to the risk of drought by securing water supplies for future generations.

The entire pipeline has been designed to have the lowest carbon footprint possible, in line with Anglian Water’s pledge to reach net zero carbon by 2030.

Ian Bester, Operations Director for JN Bentley, said: “It’s fantastic to see our teams and projects recognised at this year’s prestigious BCIA’s for excellence in engineering and construction.

“This really demonstrates the professionalism, talent and drive that our teams possess to deliver industry leading infrastructure projects and initiatives.

“Our winners, finalists and shortlisted teams should all be very proud – congratulations and thank you!”

The full list of recognition for JN Bentley, MMB and JBA Bentley is as follows:

  • Mill Fleam Pumping Station (Project MUNIO) – JBA Bentley – Environmental Project of the Year (Winner)

  • Strategic Pipeline Alliance (SPA) – MMB – Carbon Net Zero Initiative of the Year (Winner) and Product Innovation of the Year (Finalist)
