Excellent opportunities exist for graduates with 0-2 years experience to join our Environmental/ Public Health Engineering teams in St Albans and London.
Well-designed water and waste systems are essential to successful, healthy and sustainable buildings.
As Environmental / Public Health Engineers, we design systems for water supply and sanitation that help buildings work better for occupants, owners and the environment.
We are perfectly positioned to address and help resolve water and energy related challenges. In a rapidly changing world, we are faced with the challenge of supporting larger cities with increasingly scarce resources. For instance, water: all life is dependent on it but as global population levels continue to rise, this vital resource becomes ever more precious. As Environmental / Public Health Engineers, we are perfectly positioned to address and help resolve such water and energy related challenges.
The design of sustainable water management systems helps save water and the energy associated with its use, from pumping to heating. From sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) to water reuse, our expertise in the field of Environmental/ Public Health Engineering helps clients to make better use of water and energy, and to make their buildings more resilient.
We, as professional engineers, tackle diverse challenges – from sustainable strategies to fire suppression systems and from drainage in high-rise buildings to supplying ultra-pure water and piping specialist gases and fluids for healthcare, science and industry facilities.
As part of our day to day role, we coordinate our design approach with mechanical and electrical engineers, providing integrated building services while collaborating with structural engineers and architects to ensure our systems are seamlessly integrated into the final design. External to the building curtilage, we also collaborate with water and civil engineers to ensure that plumbing and infrastructure work together, in sympathy with the complete water cycle.
As a discipline, our skills cover the following technical fields within the built environment:
Hot and cold water systems
Water conservation solutions
Solar thermal hot water systems
Borehole water systems
Above ground foul systems and rainwater systems
Below ground, sustainable and pumped drainage
