Vertical Transportation Designer
Competitive Salary + Benefits
Are you a designer looking to make a difference to the world around you? Do you want the chance to grow, learn, and be supported by industry leaders? This ever-changing world will be shaped by the buildings put into it; and we know it’s often the newest minds who have the brightest ideas.
Vertical Transportation is one of our specialist groups, providing lift, escalator and moving walk expertise to ensure the efficient movement of people in buildings using the best traditional and modern technologies for new, refurbished and occupied premises. As modern buildings and their uses become ever more demanding the design becomes an increasingly challenging process. Our efficient Vertical Transportation designs provide the ideal solutions for complex projects.
We look at the building as a whole and are involved in every stage, from initial client discussions right through to construction and even the building’s ongoing performance. We collaborate with colleagues, architects and other construction professionals, playing a critical role in every building’s design.
As a Vertical Transportation designer, your day-to-day tasks will vary, as we’ll expose you to all aspects of our work so you can discover what suits you. You could produce detailed designs and drawings, use the latest computer modelling software, carry out traffic simulations, define Vertical Transportation strategies for new or existing building developments to allow efficient transport of occupiers, or research ground-breaking technologies. Communicating will span all of these, as we regularly liaise with project teams, meet clients or end users, and attend collaborative meetings.
What can we offer you?
As a leading international firm of consulting engineers, we didn’t build a 150-year legacy by standing still. The built environment is where our design-led work can carve out a better future for the planet and its people. For us, it’s about putting heart, soul, innovation and sustainability into the buildings we work on. You will receive the best training and development through our Initial Professional Development scheme. We recently won the IET long running scheme award recognising 25 years of continuous accreditation. We are committed to the ongoing professional development of our people and support you towards achieving your goals.
An expected or achieved 2.1 or above degree or equivalent qualification in Design Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Building Services, Architectural Engineering or any discipline with a real understanding or interest in mechanics and analysis.
A masters or other relevant post graduate qualification is an advantage
Previous placement or work experience is an advantage
An understanding of BIM is an advantage
Excellent communication, analytical and organisational skills
Ability to work in a team environment and independently
A friendly, ambitious and confident individual with a flexible and resilient approach
