Electrical / Senior Electrical Engineer - £45 to £55K + Package + Flexible working

Residential and Hotel projects. Love them or hate them?

Although it's not all they do, a large portion of the projects this 30 strong, global building services and sustainability consultancy are currently working on, include super prime residential developments, luxury hotels and residential led mixed use developments.

However, prior to Covid-10 they have also designed numerous low energy eco lodges, museums, galleries, artists' studios, commercial offices, places of worship, ultra-low energy schools, universities and true, net zero masterplans.

So, if you do join and can handle working on residential projects for the first few months, it won't be long before you'll get involved in a greater variety of projects again.

The Company

Established over a decade ago, their mission was to improve the building services industry by training their Engineers to develop a better, holistic understanding of architecture, sustainability, energy and MEP.

Their approach

Rather than just getting involved in either concept, or detail design they always partner with clients or architects from feasibility; all the way through construction and post occupancy. By staying connected with their clients and the buildings they've designed and understanding how they operate in use, rather than just during the design stages; they are able to truly design low energy buildings that really enhance people's lives and promote health and well-being.

The four founding Directors all remain hands on and are all very down to earth, friendly and supportive individuals that are always available to help or guide you.
