Full Time
A unique role within building services engineering, we are looking for someone who has a mix of building services design skills, residential knowledge and an interest in manufacturing.

This company is pioneering the design and offsite construction of houses from their factory sited between Harrogate and York and equipped with the latest IT and design systems to ensure that they are at the leading edge and well placed to exploit the massive potential of this sector.

With a proven product, your role will be to help develop it to make it better and also suitable for other sites and installations.

You will need to be used to working on residential based projects and be keen to look at how to break down the concept design to maximise efficiency in construction, minimise material cost and of course eliminate risk of design failure as well as take in to account commercial elements. There is also an element of team management as you will be giving direction and advice to a Design Technician who will be supporting you in the role.

Due to the post being in a new area of services engineering, the employer is happy to be flexible around certain facets, but the key elements that you must be comfortable with are:
  • Knowledge and understanding of building services design in housing
  • Having a client friendly nature when dealing with internal and external partners
  • The desire to do things differently; 'because we have always done this' shouldn't be in your vocabulary!
  • Be comfortable providing advice and having input; the culture of the company expects it as well as the role demanding it
  • Knowledge of Building Regulations, including Part P as well as CDM regs.
  • Fluency with AutoDesk products such as Revit and AutoCAD with Inventor and Vault being useful.

If this sounds like you and you wish to take your career to a new level within a slightly different field to mainstream services, contact Simon Owen for a discreet conversation.
