Senior/Principal Mechanical Engineer - £66K + Package

Tired of having to churn out poor quality designs just to try and ensure your projects remain profitable?

Well, you're not alone.

This is one of the main reasons why this building services and environmental design consultancy was established in 2010, by four entrepreneurial individuals.

Rather than entering a 'fastest race to the bottom' scenario, by competing against other consultancies based just on cost, they secure the majority of their projects directly from architects or end user clients.

They partner with architects on interesting and meaningful projects and create innovative, low carbon buildings that enhance and improves the occupants' lives. Recent projects include listed buildings, galleries and studios, hotels, commercial offices, and large-scale mixed-use developments or regeneration projects across the UK and abroad.

As a Senior or Principal Mechanical Engineer, you will lead projects, manage fees and resources, lead the design and coordination, produce concept designs, calculations, drawings, specifications, equipment schedules and attend client presentations, meetings, and site visits.

You'll use your knowledge of architecture, structural engineering, sustainability, and environmental design to ensure that the building services are fully integrated and coordinated within a building.

You'll also monitor and manage the workload of junior team members, develop their skills, share knowledge, and offer guidance when required.

In return they offer a relaxed, diverse, and inclusive office culture and actively encourage applications regardless of identity, personal characteristics, or background.
