If you can bring passion and flair to our work, have a real interest in improving the built environment and want to now apply your engineering skills to the real world then we want to hear from you. Our Building Services Disciplines Include:
Mechanical Engineering - The quality of a building’s internal environment plays a significant role in determining its fitness for the purpose for which it was designed. The mechanical engineer by the application of modern control technology allied to energy efficient heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, allows occupants to vary conditions within the building although this all starts with working with the architect to ensure the buildings form is sufficiently thermally efficient to enable energy targets to be met or exceeded.
Electrical Engineering - We deliver expert thinking to drive efficient solutions for High and low voltage power supplies, utilities, standby generation, UPS, resilient systems, small power, fire alarms, security, lighting and power. We pay attention to critical systems and resilience levels.
Public / Environmental Health Engineering - Water is life. Energy and water efficient solutions are delivered for hot and cold water systems, solar thermal, sprinklers, drainage systems, water treatment, fire suppression and irrigation systems as well as sophisticated water reclaim and recycling systems for optimum water conservation and Sustainable Drainage Solutions (SuDS)/Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD).
When a graduate starts with us we pair them with an experienced engineer who will guide and mentor them through their initial period working on live projects.
The following description lists a fairly typical approach to foundation training in your discipline; however, business needs, project task availability, and your training interests will also influence the scope and order of training. For your first year you will learn the following skills:
