Graduate Vertical Transportation Engineer - Buildings 2022
Arup is an independent firm of designers, planners, engineers, architects, consultants and technical specialists, working across every aspect of today's built environment. Together we help our clients solve their most complex challenges – turning exciting ideas into tangible reality as we strive to find a better way and shape a better world. As one of the world's leading building design consultancies, we offer clients the innovation and technical know-how to continually deliver their projects on schedule and on budget, without compromise.
Overview of the role
Around the globe, Arup's vertical transportation engineers bring specialist expertise to solutions for buildings and transport infrastructure. Our comprehensive services include vertical transportation engineering design for both new and refurbished buildings; we are also involved in condition surveys of existing lifts and escalators.
Whether in commercial property, retail, sport, leisure, the arts or any market, we meet the creative and commercial demands of designers and developers. Our specialists work seamlessly with structural and building services engineers to create complete building solutions.
Beyond standard areas of responsibility, Arup expects its vertical transportation engineers to become creative partners in the design process working closely with architects to ensure the movement of people and goods around buildings in an efficient and co-ordinated manner.
At Arup, we are leaders rather than followers in technical advances and sustainability. Through in-house research and development and a host of previous cutting-edge projects, we ensure that clients get the benefit, rather than the risk, of innovation. We look not only at the capital cost of new installations but the space efficiency and energy costs to arrive at optimum solutions.
