Job Summary

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.

Around the World AECOM

A bird's eye view of AECOM at work around the globe, delivering a better world.

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.  Our Building Services Disciplines Include Mechanical, Electrical & Public Health Engineeing ( these can be applied for separately on our job board):

Mechanical Engineering - The quality of a building’s internal environment plays a significant role in determining its fitness for the purpose for which it was designed. The mechanical engineer by the application of modern control technology allied to energy efficient heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, allows occupants to vary conditions within the building although this all starts with working with the architect to ensure the buildings form is sufficiently thermally efficient to enable energy targets to be met or exceeded.

The following description lists a fairly typical approach to foundational training in your discipline. 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

Job responsibilities:

  • 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

Minimum Requirements

  • An accredited Bachelor degree (min 2:1 or equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering, Building Services Engineering, Architectural Environment Engineering, Architectural Engineering or Public Health Engineering with honors, plus either an appropriate Masters degree or Engineering Doctorate (EngD) accredited by CIBSE or IMechE .
  • Maths and Sciences A-Levels (or equivalent) would be  advantageous, at grade ‘B’ or above
  • Microstation, AutoCad and/or Revit would be advantageous
  • You must have the right to work in the UK as we are unable to offer visa sponsorship for these roles.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Relevant work experience in Building Services would be advantageous
