At BuroHappold, we’re passionate about great engineering. And always have been.

We are a holistic engineering practice, where engineers are more than just human calculators, they’re helpers in shaping solutions, making the world a better place to live in.

When it comes to your graduate career, don’t opt for the obvious. Don’t accept the average. Expect the best and work with the best. 

 We make the vision viable.

Our energy consulting work extends from energy use in individual buildings through to national level strategy.

We specialise in techno-economic analysis for both supply and demand. In fact we are one of the few consultancies who can fully design energy systems and also accurately model their commercial performance. At the Energy Centre for the London 2012 Olympic Games, our introduction of innovative approaches such as carbon offsetting, enabled a 50% reduction in operational carbon emissions for the legacy venues and infrastructure, whilst attracting over £100m in private sector investment. We have also developed a stakeholder engagement capability to resolve complex technical challenges that require a degree of alignment across diverse stakeholder groups, such as the Cornwall Energy Island Initiative.
