Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK has secured a place on a £15m per year waste management and landfill framework covering the UK.
FCC Environment UK awarded the contract to Jones Bros because of the family firm’s considerable experience in waste remediation.
Jones Bros has delivered a number of successful projects for FCC during a highly-successful seven-year relationship.
On the back of these landfill contracts, Jones Bros has also successfully delivered major infrastructure contracts for FCC, including the £6.7m A41 Greatmoor access road; £3.6m High Heavens transfer station and £7.2m Wrexham Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) plant.
The FCC framework runs for two years, with an option for a further year, which would take the contract to 2020.
Geraint Thomas, Jones Bros’ southern regional manager, said: “We are proud of our significant experience in waste remediation, which covers a wide variety of challenging projects and schemes across the UK. For example, we carry out 1,000,000m3 of earthworks, and supply and install approximately 500,000m2 of geosynthetics on site, per year.
“We are pleased to have won a place on the FCC framework. In our tender, we demonstrated our site expertise, including our strong commitment to leading health and safety practices, and also our ability to provide clients with the best possible value for money.
“We normally have up to 10 FCC sites running at any one time, and currently this spans from Glasgow to the Isle of Sheppey, in Kent. There will be more than 100 people on site at peak times, including plant operators and general operatives, around 10 to 15 of whom will be apprentices.
“In line with Jones Bros’ structured career programme for employees across all sites, we will also support trainee engineers on site, who are at various stages of their academic and professional qualifications, according to their personal development plans.
“All the work will be completed by our expert in-house delivery team.”
Chris Ellis, operations director at FCC environment said “As one of the UK’s leading resource and waste management businesses, it is vital we form strong relationships with key suppliers to enable us to continue at all times to deliver service excellence to our customers.
“Following a thorough tender process, we have awarded Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK a framework contract and we look forward to working with them in the coming years.”
