As a Principal Building Physics Engineer, you will contribute to the decarbonisation of the built environment in the UK, utilising Passivhaus principles on large-scale commercial projects.

You will work on diverse projects and oversee the Building Physics (i.e. DTM and DfP etc) production on schools, universities, commercial offices, museums, laboratories, and large-scale residential developments.

With a hybrid working policy of two days a week from their London office and a nine-day fortnight, you'll also be able to start enjoying a better work life balance again.
