AECOM - Who We Are

AECOM is a collaborative force of world-class innovators, ideators, and visionaries, on a journey to transform our world for the better.

AECOM is one of the world’s largest professional engineering consultancies, bringing a comprehensive portfolio of building services and engineering skills to projects encompassing all types of building and use from World Class Sporting Venues through to Commercial Properties, Healthcare & Research, Hotels, Industrial & Manufacturing, and Infrastructure both in the UK and increasingly overseas. Building services engineers work closely with the design team to ensure the projects we create together sustainably perform to the brief and budget. Increasingly we work with our other internal business lines such as Architecture, Environment, Transportation, and our own Project Managers to provide a one stop solution to our clients. If you can bring passion and flair to our work, have a real interest in improving the built environment and want to now apply your engineering skills to the real world then we want to hear from you.

Job Responsibilities 

When a graduate starts with us we pair them with an experienced engineer who will guide and mentor them through their initial period working on live projects.

The following description lists a fairly typical approach to foundational training in your discipline; however, business needs, project task availability, and your training interests will also influence the scope and order of training.

For your first year you will learn the following skills:

  • Variety of analyses for different buildings from Offices to Hospitals to Data Centre’s and Hotels
  • AECOM standards and symbols
  • Microstation, AutoCad and REVIT
  • Load calculation and Modelling software
  • How to use Technical Practice Network
  • Learning to navigate through codes and/or guidelines
  • Complete our Safety Training 
  • System load calculations to enable central and secondary plant to be accurately sized
  • Ensuring plantrooms and distribution routes are adequately sized
  • Report writing for the appropriate RIBA stage
  • Compiling technical specifications appropriate for the system components selected
  • Determining the best technical solution and evidencing reasoning.
  • Working on projects using REVIT & AutoCad
  • Giving structure to ideas – lots of 'taking a first pass' at spreadsheets, reports and analyses for discussion later rather than instruction
  • Attending meetings and workshops, learning from listening, asking questions and discussion
  • Working with people from other disciplines to gain knowledge on new subjects
  • Assisting in developing our designs through the different stages
  • Inspecting and monitoring installations during the construction phase.
  • Taking on more responsibility in managing our projects from inception through to completion as the graduate role develops.
