Lead Designer at the JBA-Bentley
Alice is a lead designer at the JBA-Bentley and is responsible for delivering design and build solutions to flood and coastal erosion risk management schemes for the Environment Agency. At present Alice is working on the South Ferriby Flood Alleviation scheme, a £15 million flood defence project comprising approximately 4km of earth embankments, 500m of concrete flood walls and associated demountable defence structures which will provide an impenetrable barrier to protect the town of South Ferriby from tidal flooding. The high-profile nature of the scheme also enabled Alice to connect with the local community through arranging site visits for local primary school children in the hope she could increase awareness of the works to local children and encourage further interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) subjects going forward.
In recognition of her efforts, willingness to learn and can-do attitude, as well as her ability to develop good working relationships, she has been awarded many valuable and appreciated opportunities throughout her relatively short career.
