Associate Energy Consultant – London

February 16, 2024
We're Hiring!

We are currently seeking an Associate Energy Consultant to work within our sustainability & energy team, based in our office in London. The position is an immediate start.

The Company

Envision is a leading sustainability, energy and building services design consultancy that provides specialist support towards sustainability within the built environment. We were founded in 2012 by directors of a multi-disciplinary planning and engineering consultancy and have steadily grown into a well-established company. Unlike many sustainability consultancies that have developed as a ‘support service’ to larger practices, Envision specialises in providing end-to-end support to its real estate clients. We pride ourselves on fostering a flexible, creative and fun working environment.

We bring together a range of technical disciplines to advise clients on their ESG policies, to manage their real estate portfolio and develop sustainability and energy strategies for new and existing developments. We combine this with our expert team of building service engineers to deliver low carbon solutions for our clients.

As part of our sustainability offering, our services include the provision of a full range of environmental assessment methods for both new and existing developments, BREEAM (including In-Use), Home Quality Mark, CEEQUAL, WELL and Building with Nature. We also undertake Whole Life Cycle Assessments, which feeds into our strategies for achieving Net Zero.

We take pride in our pro-active approach, supporting our clients with close and tailored support. Our pragmatic and hands-on approach means that we are retained by the largest UK property funds, publicly listed developers as well as leading constructors.

The Role

This is an excellent opportunity for an Associate Energy Consultant looking to take the next step in their career. You will join our growing team to work on a diverse range of projects in the UK and internationally. The role is very wide ranging, working on building physics, energy strategies, Net-Zero strategies, and operational energy analysis in support of whole life cycle carbon assessments.

Working closely with colleagues of various disciplines across our two offices, you will take the lead on energy & sustainability projects – developing concepts, reports and presenting to clients. You will ensure the successful delivery of innovative sustainable and low-carbon design solutions to quality standards and deadlines. You will receive continual support from more senior members of staff, along with access to our in-house training programme allowing you to continue your professional development.

You should have highly technical background with an eye for detail, the role will involve significant review of junior staff deliverables.

This role will enable you to have an impact across a variety of sectors such as Education, Commercial, Healthcare, Retail and Residential, and ensure that over time you have the opportunity to assume greater levels of responsibility and autonomy. We regularly undertake works for which are GLA referable so authoring and undertaking the calculations related to these will be expected experience.

Specific work deliverables expected to be project managed and delivered by the consultant in this role will include:

  1. Planning-Stage Energy & Sustainability Reports
  2. Net-Zero Energy Strategies
  3. ESG Site Acquisition Reviews
  4. Dynamic Simulation Modelling (TM52, TM59, TM54, TM63, Daylight)
  5. SAP & SBEM Energy Modelling
  6. BREEAM Support
About You

Educated to degree level in the field of engineering, sustainability or environmental science, you will have gained significant demonstrable experience in a sustainability and energy consultancy role within the built environment.

The successful candidate should be highly motivated, possess excellent communication skills and look to develop their ongoing professional qualifications. This will be a technical role involving mentoring of junior staff, therefore applicants should expect technical questions during the interview.
