We are looking for a Building Envelope Specialist to join our Building Structures team in Atkins’ London/South-East team working on many projects in this regard, including some of the most prestigious new buildings in London. This is an important role in a team of senior staff engaged in Due Diligence/Latent Defects Insurance, expert witness, building assessment, and new build projects.

Expert Witness experience would be advantageous although not essential.

• Excellent report writing;
• Relevant professional qualification;
• Experience of cladding systems across a variety of materials and building types;
• Comprehensive knowledge of current regulations/legislation;
• Knowledge of coating/protection;
• Knowledge and experience of interfaces and tolerances between building elements;
• Testing, maintenance and repair of cladding systems; and
• Experience and appreciation of issues around “Bespoke” designs.

Rewards
Join us in this role and you can take your career so much further. We offer the opportunity to work across different disciplines, in different UK offices and even to take up international or client-based secondments. So you won’t just be helping to shape the world of tomorrow, you’ll be shaping your own future too. We’ve got a lively culture where people from a diverse range of backgrounds support and inspire each other to achieve great things. So alongside excellent rewards and benefits, you’ll enjoy being part of a team that builds strong bonds both in and out of work!
