Building Performance Modeller 2021
An excellent opportunity is available to join our expanding Building Performance Modelling team, in either Edinburgh or Bristol, specialising in Energy and Thermal modelling. The team works collaboratively with our wider building services teams to develop energy and thermal strategies, enabling us to deliver world-class sustainable buildings.
This engineering position specialises in the use of Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES) Virtual Environmental (VE) modelling software, and involves carrying out domestic and non-domestic modelling for:
- UK Building Regulations energy assessments
- Operational energy assessments
- Overheating assessments
- Natural ventilation modelling
- Daylight modelling
- BREEAM modelling
- NABERS modelling
Some experience in this type of modelling and an understanding of mechanical engineering design is desirable for the role, but not essential. Similarly, a Low Carbon Energy Assessor qualification would be an ideal asset.
The role involves collaborating with the wider design team to develop building modelling, engaging with them to work within project constraints. This is in addition to supporting our project engineers by giving guidance on modelling requirements, advising on sensible approaches whilst being able to confidently interrogate project briefs.
Training and support of the extended group of engineers delivering modelling is planned to be delivered from the central Building Performance Modelling team and will form part of this role.
About the Person
We value people with the ability to think analytically and creatively, adopting a first principles approach to create elegant and innovative solutions to practical engineering problems. We recruit and train people who can rise to this challenge.
We are looking for an engineer who has exceptional time management and organisational skills, and the ability to progress several projects at once whilst maintaining attention to detail. This role also requires a motivated team player who is keen and willing to learn.
An essential personal attribute is a strong sense of ownership for the work that you do. You must care about the presentation and detail of the design and be intent on achieving technical excellence and completeness. Good verbal and written communication skills are also essential.
To qualify for this role, you should be practically minded and have a background in maths, science or engineering. Ideally you would have a qualification in one of these areas; however, we are open to receiving a broad range of applicants. You should have a strong desire to work in the building design industry. If you have the skills we are looking for, we would love to hear from you.
