Graduate Fire Engineer (Buildings)
Leading-edge thinking about the form and performance of any building underpins AECOM's position as a global leader in the skilfully crafted design of sustainable, elegant and cost-effective buildings. To drive maximum performance of the building in operation, to generate spaces with optimal commercial viability, and to ensure a holistic and sustainable design solution, our work integrates the thinking of some of the world's leading building scientists and engineers. At the top of their professions, these specialists are recognised experts in their fields, including our Fire Engineers.
In the early stages of project design, your role as a graduate Fire Engineer comprises of ensuring that the Project Design Team is aware of the implications that their decisions have on the fire safety strategy of the building. This may require an in depth analyses of the design, which could include Computational Fluid Dynamics, smoke layer calculations or evacuation modelling, depending on the situation.
As projects progress you will be required to advise the Project Design Team on their decisions and ensure that any non-compliant variations in the design are mitigated in an effective manner to satisfy the requirements of the Building Regulations. You will attend meetings under the supervision of a senior engineer and will be involved in the development of the fire safety strategy.
