An opportunity for a building structures engineer to be more closely involved and influential in the design and delivery process. It will provide a career boost to an engineer wanting to move away from the production line of a very large consulting practice without compromising on quality, complexity, or scale of projects. This practice is long established, independent and held in high industry regard. Their workload includes some of the UK's larger, high-profile projects, involving regular collaboration with celebrated architects. Worth consideration for a potential recruit is that this is a medium size business arranged into smaller project teams, your ideas and knowledge will have meaningful impact, and it will ensure the development of your client facing, technical and delivery skills. More generally the firm nurtures its employees and has a friendly and collaborative culture, all of which has resulted in low levels of staff turnover.

The project has been designed extensively using BIM and the practice has designed the associated drainage infrastructure. A £65m nine storey mixed use development in the City of London providing 14,000 sqm of office space, 1,450 of retail space and thirteen new residential units. Their pipeline of future work is strong and will include a mix of new and refurbishment projects
