PRINCIPAL OR ASSOCIATE MECHANICAL DESIGN ENGINEER

One of my clients, an SME M&E consultancy near Kings Cross, are looking for an experienced Mechanical Design Engineer to help deliver projects and mentor their young team. There is currently a bit of a gap between the four Directors and their 15-strong team of Intermediates and fresh Seniors – while excellent engineers, they are all a little green and the Directors have decided to take on a seasoned, experienced engineer to help mentor the team, developing their skills and therefore the company.

Set up 7 years ago with the vision of improving the building services sector through a more integrated approach and working with exciting, creative architectural practices, the firm are now up to 18 employees and still expanding.

The four Directors were disillusioned by their shared experience of poor commercial practices and low-quality, “churned out” design work. Having worked together for almost 10 years, delivering landmark UK projects and large international projects, they decided to set up their own practice where they could do Building Services Design their way.

The whole company is driven by their ethos of investing time, effort and care in providing a better service and better design than their competitors. They will not compromise on this, instead focussing on detailed design and close involvement in the project.

The Principal or Associate Mechanical Design Engineer will be working on projects including:

  • Residential – 50-50 between individual houses for high net worth individuals and multi-unit schemes for developers
  • 400 units in East London
  • A £20 million mansion in Hampstead
  • Commercial – around 40% of their workload and the area they are most looking to grow
  • Full detailed design of 7,000m2 of commercial fit-out in East London
  • 4,000m2 of prime office space refurbishment in Central London
  • Flagship – quirky and unique architectural schemes, undertaken to improve their profile and out of interest in the projects
  • More detail available on request

This is a unique opportunity for a Principal/Associate Mechanical Design Engineer to get in on the ground floor of a fantastic company already enjoying a burgeoning reputation in the industry.

  • Focus on and commitment to high quality design work without compromise.
  • This includes a commitment to being up to date with technology, always working in 3D Revit if they possibly can.
  • Incredibly low staff turnover – only three people have left for any reason in their 7 year history, a fantastic achievement for a young, growing company competing with established, international multi-disciplinary consultancies.
  • A huge focus on sharing of ideas and discussion of all projects throughout the team. The office is open plan for everyone, including Directors.
