£45,000 - £60,000 + Benefits + WFH Flexibility

Do you have experience working in a fast-paced office environment? Are you a creative, self-motivated, and forward-thinking Mechanical Design Engineer, looking for a challenge? Looking for a company where you can grow and where you’re offered support? If you’re nodding along, let’s explore this opportunity!

The Company

They are environmental design consultants, who find ways for buildings to tread more lightly on the planet. They also lighting designers who illuminate spaces with beauty and efficiency. And they are building services engineers. They know their way around all the elements that bring structures to life, from pipes to ducts to wires. On some projects they wear all three hats at once, sometimes just one or two.

They help clients create smart buildings that work with the natural laws of physics.

Buildings that lift the spirit and make people feel good.

Buildings that give back to the wider environment and don’t waste energy or resources.

High-performance, sustainable, award-winning buildings.

On every project, they’re spurred by the challenge of doing more with less. Every day they explore what it means to make architecture part of the wider environmental system. A pretty big concept when you think about it.

The integral nature of their work makes it invisible. So, at its most successful, it simply works.

Their green credentials attract some clients like bees to honey. That doesn’t mean they only work with people with big budgets and big sustainability goals. They are always keen to get stuck into solving problems, whatever the scale – they simply find a way to best suit each client’s scope.
