Jet Aire Secures £1m Highways
Maintenance Contract
L
eeds-based
drainage
and
groundworks company, Jet Aire
Services, has secured a £1m
contract
to
provide
drainage
maintenance services across various
regions of the UK on behalf of
highways
asset
management
company, Carnell Group.
The contract, one of Jet Aire’s largestever, was awarded following the recent
completion of a previous £100,000
contract for Carnell Group which
required Jet Aire to carry out jet
vacuuming for Highways Areas in the
Northeast and Herefordshire. Similar
works will now be carried out for
Highways Areas in North Yorkshire,
Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, Durham,
Cumbria and the East Midlands as part
of Carnell Group’s overall asset
management
commissioned
by
Highways England. Carnell are the UK’s
leading providers of Highways Agency
14
Drainage Data Management System
(HADDMS) surveys, prioritising areas in
need of remediation through asset
inventory and condition assessment of
road surfaces and sub-surface drainage
assets.
Jet Aire Services Director, Keith Ferris,
said: “Jet Aire are delighted to secure
more business from Carnell Group on
the strength of our performance on the
original contract. The highways sector is
a key part of Jet Aire’s growth strategy.
We have targeted this type of business
with the benefit of a £400,000
investment in a JHL Flexline 414
Recycler Unit – currently one of only four
in the UK and the only one in the North.
It can work on large diameter drains and
recycles the water it uses, which
significantly reduces downtime and
makes it ideal for motorway works as the
unit can stay on-site for the duration of
the shift.
“Investment in ISO9001, ISO14001 and
OHSAS 18001 certification means that
Jet Aire’s management systems are
aligned with the exacting standards of
leading nationwide operators such as
Carnell Group and this has also been a
factor in securing larger contracts. We
recently received another 414 Flexline
recycler from JHL, one of five that will be
added to fleet, before the end of May, in
readiness for supporting our ever
expanding customer base”.
With a Middlesbrough office in addition
to its Aberford HQ, Jet Aire Services has
been established for over thirty years.
The company’s services also include
tankering and waste disposal, UV lining,
infiltration sealing, robotic cutting, root
cutting, epoxy spray Ultracoating,
surfacing, block paving, fencing and civil
engineering works.
