  • The Team

    Cundall’s leading sustainability & building physics team is a key part of our international business. We pride ourselves on our exemplary track record of designing innovative, sustainable and energy efficient solutions, that minimise the use of natural resources.

     

     Due to the international nature of our business we encourage any opportunity for knowledge sharing between our global teams.

    The Role

    This is an excellent opportunity for a talented engineer to join our team in Edinburgh, to work on some of the most exciting sustainable design projects in the UK and around the world.

     

    As part of our established team of engineers and consultants, and working closely with colleagues of various disciplines, you will design, analyse, report, model and document sustainability projects as well as present to clients with the aim of expanding the sustainability project portfolio. You will work across a variety of sectors and will have the opportunity over time to assume greater levels of responsibility and autonomy as we support the development of your professional skills.

     

    As a senior engineer you will be responsible for managing and mentoring junior staff as well as project delivery for our four key work streams:

    • Bespoke sustainability frameworks and our One Planet Living services
    • Health and wellbeing advice and guidance
    • Building physics and parametric model services
    • Indoor environmental quality monitoring services

    The role will offer a high degree of autonomy, based on the level of experience already gained in the industry.

     

    You will be expected to support Cundall’s One Planet Living aspirations.

    The Skills

    Educated to Masters level in Engineering or the Built Environment, and having gained relevant practical experience in a similar role, you have demonstrable knowledge and experience of sustainability and building physics, particularly in relation to heat transfer, energy, thermal comfort and natural ventilation. 

     

    Knowledge of dynamic simulation software, mechanical design, UK Building Regulations, Planning issues, thermal comfort standards, climate based daylighting analysis, operational energy calculation and life cycle carbon costing is beneficial.

     

    Given the collaborative and client focussed nature of this role, good communication skills and some experience of using your initiative to overcome challenges are essential.
