Who we are

JBA Consulting is part of the JBA Group, an environmental, engineering and risk group, committed to exceptional client service helping to improve the environment, business and infrastructure.

We began in 1995 with the intention of creating a specialist consultancy with an inter-disciplinary approach to our offering. In 2011, we restructured to form the JBA Group, allowing us to add to the breadth of our services while focusing on our specialist skills and expertise.

We are engineers, environmental consultants, scientists and designers, managing weather and environmental risks and opportunities for our clients.

We have grown to be one of Europe’s leading specialists in environmental engineering and environmental management, with a strong track record of major studies for national governments and international bodies such as the European Investment Bank, European Commission, Defra, Environment Agency, SEPA and the Rivers Agency Northern Ireland.
