Job Details

Join one of London’s leading building structures design practices offering exceptional training, career progression and project exposure. Our client's standing for technical expertise and innovation is matched by their reputation for rewarding and nurturing their employees.        

The Role: With the support of an associate, you will carry out conceptual designs, negotiate fees and supervise detail design and delivery. You will develop a close working relationship with architects, taking more ownership of schemes as your understanding of their requirements builds. You will work closely with the junior engineers and technicians assisting you and provide technical guidance.  

Company Profile: A building structures practice that is the designer of choice for architects requiring structural expertise on innovative and advanced structures. Their project workload covers the arts, leisure, education, residential and commercial sectors. Their expertise extends beyond engineering, this deeper appreciation of architectural intent means closer, more influential collaboration with clients. This approach delivers awarded winning designs that are elegant and cost effective whilst reducing environmental impact. They work with the full range of materials including reinforced concrete, steel, timber, glass and ETFE. The practice is organised into small project groups each overseen by an associate. A flat management structure and open plan studio layout means information flows freely. Design team members have insight on the whole design process and projects are very much a team effort.

Your First Project: Subject to your start date will work on one or more of the following projects, an ambitious £60m project to convert a grade II listed Victorian cotton mill to provide commercial, restaurant, entertainment and cultural facilities. A new £25m residential development designed to meet the highest standards of sustainability.  A £10m extension and refurbishment of a grade II listed hotel.

About you: A building structures engineer with a strong interest in architecture and engineering. A willingness to work towards chartered status with the IStructE or ICE. A 2:1 or above in civil or structural engineering. Experience of working well in a team environment. A strong technical interest with good lateral thinking skills.
