Building Physics Engineer - To £45K

Rather than having to specialise in Energy, Sustainability or Environmental Analysis; you'll get involved in all areas and also receive full support and training in areas such as LCA, CFD or Digital Development.

As a Building Physics Engineer, you'll help model energy efficient buildings that maximise the use of daylight and natural ventilation and promote health and well-being.

You'll get to work on an interesting range of projects across the UK, US, Europe and Australia including schools, hotels, high rise residential towers, newt zero masterplans and places or worship.

You'll enjoy working closely with architects and engineers and help design the next generation of LZC or ultra-low energy buildings; and enjoy working for a consultancy that has always put the health and well-being of their own staff first.

Rather than just getting involved at the early stages, here you'll be involved in projects from the initial planning application, through detail design and then finally, construction. This will include carrying out Post Occupancy Evaluations and Energy Audits to compare the operational energy against the initial predictions and promote greater building performance in the future.

Main Duties

  • Use a range of Software such as IESVe, Grasshopper for Rhino, Ladybug, Honeybee or Radiance to design high-performance, low energy buildings.
  • Conduct R&D into new materials and technologies that will continue to promote a zero-carbon future.
  • Undertake environmental analysis including detailed MEP systems simulations, daylight analysis, overheating studies and external microclimate studies.
  • Calculate heating and cooling loads.
  • Actively support and promote the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI).
  • Continue to improve the industries understanding of the Embodied Carbon of building services in existing buildings.
  • Assist clients in with decarbonisation strategies and prepare and present Zero Carbon Roadmaps.
  • Take a lead for dynamic thermal modelling for both compliance and operational energy analysis.
  • Develop and maintain relationships with architects, suppliers, project managers and specialist consultants.
  • Use a range of environmental benchmarking methodologies such as Nabers, LEED, Greenstar, BREEAM, WELL or Passivhaus to ensure buildings are as energy efficient as possible.

Requirements

  • Degree qualified in Architecture, Environmental, Energy, Physics or Building Services.
  • At least three years' experience in a similar role.
  • Good knowledge of TM65, Part L, BB101, TM52, TM54, TM59 etc and the Circular Economy.
  • Ideally experience of ASHRAE 90.1 modelling using IES Apache HVAC and also PHPP.
