Sharjah, UAE

Ref: HP362-2062

Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

We are WSP - Join us and make your career future ready!

Think bigger scale. Think higher profile. Think ground-breaking.

Join WSP, and you'll be at the heart of a team of international experts all dedicated to growing and sharing their expertise and working on projects that transform society for all of us.

WSP is looking for a Facade Engineering Consultant to join our expanding UAE team. The role primarily involves design support of facade systems from concept design through to tender documentation, including the review and technical commentary of architectural designs and preparation of technical reports, specifications, and detailed drawings. The role may also include construction stage design supervision such as the review of facade-related submittals. Candidates must have a strong knowledge of facade materials, systems, and performance requirements.

Your new role, what's involved?
* I design facade systems as the facade consultant on the project - taking the design through all stages - typically concept to construction docs - and normally working under the supervision and guidance of a Senior Consultant or Principal.
* I liaise with the architect and other consultants (including those in my own team, and other WSP disciplines) through these stages.
* I work independently, in the context of the liaison above.
* I understand the profile and capabilities of the people around me, and know when to draw on their experience.
* I have experience with complex facades
* I consider the facade from a holistic whole-building approach, rather than a systems-based approach.
* I liaise with the Architectural and Structural teams but also other technical and commercial disciplines during the delivery of the project
* I bring a technical understanding of the relevant code standards, including CDM guidelines and EN standards.
* I ensure that Health & Safety is embedded into all work practices in line with company policies.
* I support and liaise with other specialist teams if and where required.
* I undertake on-site reviews to support technical inspections.
* I supervise contractor's facade design with a hands-on level of involvement with excellent technical knowledge and depth.
* I provide technical design input to the contractor's design.
* I carry out factory and site inspections to assess the quality and conformance of equipment provided by the Facade contractor.
* I create facade design documents such as reports and presentations in a creative way with understandable and visually appealing content (technically and in written English).
* I create specifications in line with the relevant technical project requirements.
* I liaise with suppliers to hold technical workshops in line with new and innovative product trends.
* I visit conferences and exhibitions to enhance my knowledge on building materials and latest market trends.
* I prepare technical documents to share with the wider team.
* I attend technical workshops and learning sessions with manufacturers and fabricators with detailed understanding of installation processes


We'd love to hear from you if you have:
* I am Bachelors degree educated in mechanical, civil, or architectural engineering, fully qualified professional with over 10 years working experience, 5 years preferably with a recognized consultant in similar role with directly relevant facade consultancy experience.
* I am a people person, with excellent written and verbal skills.
* I am capable of working independently and remotely from my core team.
* I am able to build excellent client relations through my communication and multidisciplinary coordination skills.
