A Fortune 500 firm, see how we deliver what others can only imagine at @AECOM. Well-designed water and waste systems are essential to successful, healthy and sustainable buildings.

As Environmental/Public Health Engineers, we design systems for water supply and sanitation that help buildings work better for occupants, owners and the environment.

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.

We are perfectly positioned to address and help resolve water and energy related challenges. In a rapidly changing world, we are faced with the challenge of supporting larger cities with increasingly scarce resources. For instance, water: all life is dependent on it but as global population levels continue to rise, this vital resource becomes ever more precious. As Environmental/Public Health Engineers, we are perfectly positioned to address and help resolve such water and energy related challenges.

The design of sustainable water management systems helps save water and the energy associated with its use, from pumping to heating. From sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) to water reuse, our expertise in the field of Environmental/ Public Health Engineering helps clients to make better use of water and energy, and to make their buildings more resilient. We, as professional engineers, tackle diverse challenges – from sustainable strategies to fire suppression systems and from drainage in high-rise buildings to supplying ultra-pure water and piping
specialist gases and fluids for healthcare, science and industry facilities.

Job Responsibilities 

As part of our day to day role, we coordinate our design approach with mechanical and electrical engineers, providing integrated building services while collaborating with structural engineers and architects to ensure our systems are seamlessly integrated into the final design.

  • Fire suppression (gaseous, water mist and foam)

Requirements

  • A relevant Masters Degree or Engineering Doctorate (EngD) accredited by a professional engineering institution would be advantageous.
  • Maths and Sciences A-Levels (or equivalent) would be advantageous, at grade ‘B’ or above
