AECOM is one of the world’s largest professional engineering consultancies, bringing a comprehensive portfolio of multidisciplinary engineering skills with our Facade engineers frequently providing the leading role in the development of building projects. We are currently engaged in a wide variety of building projects from transportation through to luxury residential & commercial properties, healthcare and research, hotels and resorts, industrial and government developments.
Façade engineers work closely with design teams and Architects to ensure that the projects we create together perform sustainable and holistically to meet the brief and visual designs. Increasingly we work with our other internal business lines such as Architecture, MEP, Transportation and our own project managers to provide a one stop solution to our clients and their projects.
Across our UK offices, we wish to recruit graduates who can bring passion and excitement to our work, have a real interest in improving the built environment and façade engineering and who also now want to apply their recently gained engineering skills to an engineering environment.
Graduates commencing their careers with the AECOM Facade engineering group will be working closely with the Façade engineering team, who will guide and mentor you through the initial stages of their career whilst working on live projects.
Your key responsibilities, with support from your team, may include the following:
Developing analytical and design skills.
Participating and contributing to design workshops, where different façade solutions are determined and proposed.
Creating designs, sketches, diagrams, schematic drawings under the supervision of an experienced engineer.
Contributing to a wide range of projects as the work load dictates
Applying technical engineering softwares to develop concept details.
Liaising with other disciplines within the project team to coordinate design
Training is provided whilst you are engaged on specific projects through our formal training scheme that could potentially lead to you becoming a Chartered Engineer with the CIBSE Society of Facade Engineers. Training is delivered ‘on the job’ with the active projects we deliver and through engagement on external and internally delivered training programmes. Training will develop graduates knowledge of:
Façade element studies used in current developments
Practical application of the current design software that allows us deliver design solutions efficiently and effectively,
The skills necessary to present our engineering solutions – this will include sketching and an understanding of the use of CAD drawing software’s.
The training will ensure all our engineers have a full set of design skills and are equipped to engage with the wider design and contractor teams.
Early work with us will typically involve:
Assisting in the development of our projects through the different design stages
Attending meetings and workshops with other design professionals such as architects through to inspections during the construction phase.
As our graduates develop they are expected to take on more responsibility in managing projects which in turn leads to more challenges and rewarding career progression.
The following attributes and requirements are anticipated in the graduates we wish to recruit:-
Master’s degree in Facade Engineering, Architectural Engineering, Structural Engineering or Civil Engineering & Architecture.
Ideally degree qualification at 2:1 or higher.
Enthusiasm and drive to become a Chartered Engineer.
Interest in Façade Engineering industry.
Demonstration of the desire to create opportunity or make the most of opportunities to develop academic, engineering or life experiences.
