WSP are seeking an Summer Placement student to join a busy and successful Building Services team in our Edinburgh office. The successful candidate will become part of a respected and ambitious company with excellent career prospects; many of our staff are former placement students who returned to develop their careers with WSP and have now achieved professional qualification.
Our Building Services teams make buildings work efficiently and effectively. You would help to make buildings comfortable, with the right levels of heat and ventilation, daylight and artificial lighting. You would make them economical to run, reducing energy and water use for a better environment. It is also important to ensure that a building is safe and secure, easy to maintain and compliant with the relevant legislation. In every instance you would think about the building as a whole, and how the services integrate with each other and with the rest of the building.
On completion of your summer placement, if successful, you may be eligible to enrol onto the WSP scholarship scheme.
