Home About us

“We undertake software development for the natural and built environment.”

JBA Software is part of JBA Consulting, 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. We have grown to be one of Europe’s leading specialist software providers for the natural and built environment, with a strong track record of major studies for national governments and international bodies such as the European Investment Bank, European Commission, Network Rail, Defra, Environment Agency and SEPA.

“We're more than software developers”

Our team comes from a wide range of backgrounds: geographers, mathematicians, engineers, scientists, archaeologists and more. Most of our team have Master's level degrees and several have PhDs.

We also work closely with the internationally recognised experts in their fields throughout the JBA Group: hydrologists, landscape architects, geomorphologists, hydraulic modellers, risk analysts, environmental modellers and engineers.

This means we don't simply make your software - we seek to understand your data and what you want from it. Then we add value to it through our knowledge and innovation.
