JN Bentley award

Subcontractor Performance Award

JN Bentley award

This is the fifth year running Intelect have achieved this award issued by one of the leading privately owned construction companies in the UK.

Extract taken from the letter we received with our award

It is crucial that JN Bentley fulfils its vision and remains the 'first choice' partner for clients and subcontractors, and to do this we depend on the trusted relationships we have established with our supply chain.

Every year we review the performance of our subcontractors and recognise the efforts of those who have scored highly.


This score signals outstanding performance, and ranks you amongst the top 25% of all JN Bentley subcontractors for the year.

I'm pleased to enclose a certificate confirming your status in JN Bentley's top 25% for 2014, and I should be very grateful if you would pass on our thanks to everyone involved in fulfilling these orders - you should all be proud of your performance.

To put your success in context, in 2014 we used 443 subcontract suppliers and conducted nearly 2,000 Performance Reports. The average score for all suppliers was 1.93, the highest score we have achieved since reporting began in 2004. The percentage of suppliers who scored better than good (a mark of 2) was down slightly down on 2013, but for the sixth year running was greater than 50%.

Your performance in 2014 yielded an excellent score and we're very much looking forward to working in partnership with you throughout 2015 and beyond. Whilst there are increasing signs of economic improvement, client demands remain as high as ever, but by working together we can provide the standards which will continue to make us first choice.

One specific area that remains important is supplier engagement. Last year we had some great successes in this area, and in 2015 we will work together to ensure the supply chain understand what we need from you - and will listen so that we provide you with what you need.

Health and safety remains top priority too - it is important that the level of reporting of unsafe acts and conditions from subcontractors continues to improve because reporting incidents is a proven way of preventing more serious incidents from occurring and keeping our sites safe.

We're looking forward to strengthening our relationship with our supply chain throughout 2015, and if you have any queries, or if you would like to discuss our performance reporting system and the standards we have set for our suppliers, please feel free to give me a call.

Once again, thank you for your on-going support and many congratulations.

Yours faithfully,

David Bentley

For Christmas 2014, Walkers Lincoln requested that instead of sending them a Christmas Hamper, Intelect made a donation to the Lincoln Foodbank.

Gisele Dodson and Amy New of the Grimsby branch created several Christmas hampers, filling them with food and decorating the boxes with wrapping paper. These hampers were then delivered to the Lincoln Food Bank by Intelect Engineering Director, Phil Bodsworth.

Intelect Engineering received a letter of thanks from Lincoln Foodbank for their donation of hampers.

Bio-Methane ‘Gas to Grid’ Project

NWL Howdon Bio-Methane

Client: Interserve Construction Ltd
Date: November 2014
Discipline: Electrical Installation

Following on from the success of the Bran Sands PTA Biogas Reuse Project in 2012 NWL once again chose to engage Interserve Construction Ltd as Main Contractor on the new Bio-Methane ‘Gas to Grid’ Project at Howdon. The success of this project would be measured upon the ability to deliver the project on time, one budget and to the highest quality, As with Bran Sands, Interserve chose Intelect UK Ltd as their preferred electrical sub-contractor based upon our ability to deliver on these success factors.

Work commenced on the site in late July 2014, with the first tasks being the earthing of the formwork within the foundations of the Grid Entry Unit, Pre-Treatment Plant, Bio-Methane Upgrade Plant, Transformer Plinth and, as shown in the picture below the LV Switch Room plinth. Additionally as a part of a dedicated TNS Supply an Earth Rod Nest was installed adjacent to the LV Switch Room.

As well as heavy power distribution there was a significant amount of gas monitoring instrumentation installed, with a large proportion installed within Hazardous Areas. Intelect UK Ltd provide our Installation electricians with ‘CompEx’ training giving them the flexibility to work within many sectors of the production industry including, chemical and petro-chemical. The picture to the right shows one of these Hazardous Area installations, this one being a pressure transmitter and electric actuator at the Pre-Treatment Plant

The overall scale of the project can be seen from the picture to the left. In the foreground we can see the Pre-Treatment Plant with the gas export line disappearing uphill to the Grid Entry Unit. In the background we can see the Plant Rooms and Bio-Methane Process area with the Absorption, Desorption and Flash columns clad in scaffold. To the left are the Propane Storage Tanks with a steel protection cage fitted over

The project brought together contractors from across Europe, all with a common goal of delivering a ‘Gas to Grid’ deadline of the 30th November. The Interserve site project team led by Graeme Eagling kept the project on track and with excellent collaboration between all stakeholders the target date was achieved. We look forward to continuing our good relationships with both Northumbrian Water & Interserve Construction Ltd.


Completed installation at Potto Sewage Pumping Station, North Yorkshire

Electricity at Work Regulations (EaWR) Waste Water Delivery

Client: JN Bentley
Date: September 2014 - Ongoing
Discipline: Electrical Installation

On behalf of Northumbrian Water Limited, JN Bentley Ltd contracted Intelect UK Ltd, under New Engineering Contract (NEC3) Option A, to complete the Electrical Installation work associated with the EaWR Waste Water Delivery Scheme. 

The objective of the scheme was to bring all electrical equipment up to existing standards, including; 17th Edition BS7671, Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, and NWL E0103, E0104, E0702 specifications.  

The scheme is to be undertaken over an 18-month programme, consisting of 23 sites. Although the objectives of all sites were the same, the volume of works required was specific to the respective site, some sites requiring a full electrical refurbishment, whereas, some sites only required part refurbishment, dependant on equipment currently installed.   

As of December 2014, working collaboratively with NWL, JN Bentley Ltd and other 3rd party installers, we have successfully completed 5 of the 23 sites to the gratification of all parties, within programme and with no Health and Safety issues to report.

The picture to the left shows the completed installation at Potto Sewage Pumping Station, North Yorkshire. This particular site required a full site electrical refurbishment including: removal of redundant and non-complaint equipment; installation of a new MCC Panel (Supplied by a 3rd party), earth protection and installation of Building Services. The site was also tested to ensure it compiled with the required standards and specifications.

The picture to the right shows the inside of the Telemetry Outstation. During the installation, the existing telemetry outstation was retained, and alarm signals were changed sequentially from the old equipment to the new to enable the site to be kept operational at all times. This element of works is critical to the success of any refurbishment works carried out to operational sites as disruption to water supplies or sewage discharge can lead to financial penalties to Northumbrian Water Ltd.

Through Northumbrian Water Ltd, JN Bentley have awarded Intelect UK Ltd major framework projects for the past 8 years and continues to do so.  We have worked collaboratively on various projects ranging from small pumping stations refurbishments through to new water treatment processes.
