Are you an aspiring design engineer looking to make a difference to the world around you? Do you want the chance to grow, learn, and be supported by industry leaders? This ever-changing world will be shaped by the buildings put into it; and we know it’s often the newest minds who have the brightest ideas.

Hoare Lea Property Services is a specialist group focusing on the post occupancy of buildings. The group provides technical advice to landlords, property agents and building managers about their engineering systems, how to comply with legislation and undertake forward planning and refurbishment.

We ensure that modifications and change of use to a building all respect the original design concepts. Our project coordination skills minimise disruption to the core business operations during refurbishment and plant replacement projects.

As a leading international firm of consulting engineers, we didn’t build a 150-year legacy by standing still. The built environment is where our design-led work can carve out a better future for the planet and its people. For us, it’s about putting heart, soul, innovation and sustainability into the buildings we work on.

We play a major role in driving sustainable development. We help create some of the most innovative low-carbon buildings, pushing the limit on what’s possible. Our projects cover almost every sector – from healthcare, residential and retail, to defence, arts & heritage and education – ranging from small studies and reports to large-scale developments valued at more than £4billion.
