We endeavour to collaborate across disciplines, both internally and with other organisations, to deliver great outcomes for our clients.

You will also be able to demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of building services design and its importance in the Passivhaus context.
At times it can be hard graft. If the deadlines all come together, you will be expected to roll your sleeves up. But we operate a flexi-time system so you can kick back when you need to, and we operate a profit share scheme for loyal employees. In return, you will get to be part of an exciting, growing business where no two days are the same. We will invest in your skills and knowledge and help you achieve your ambitions. You will be offered an ethical pension to which we will contribute. Our new home working policy is under development; you will be able to work from home much of the time but be required to work in the office occasionally, including an intensive ‘settling in period’ from the outset.
