Principal Structural Engineer



Edinburgh, UK
Posted on Sunday, June 9, 2024

Redefine your personal best.

Stantec are going through an exciting time with significant growth in our water and energy sectors. This growth has created an opportunity for a Principal Structural Engineer to join our team, based from our Edinburgh office, with hybrid working allowing for a mix of home and office working.

As a Principal Structural Engineer, you will be leading the delivery of high-quality structural input to projects across the Water and Energy sectors. Projects will be varied, but include the design of water retaining concrete structures, dams / reservoirs, concrete and steel buildings, power stations, site inspections and assessment of existing structures.

You will be partnering with our clients across the water and energy sectors and will play a key role in the technical delivery of projects. As a senior member of team, you will also provide mentoring and guidance to more junior team members to help them develop their careers.

You will report directly to our Specialist Technical Lead, developing our structural knowledge and capability, and supporting internal opportunities in sectors beyond water and energy.

About You

Specific requirements of this role include the ability to carry out and lead structural design for concrete, steel and masonry structures, and to carry out structural inspections and produce concise reports that define requirements for asset maintenance and modifications to meet client and regulatory standards. Experience within the Water or Energy sectors would be beneficial.

In addition to your structural design experience, you’ll have a good knowledge of civil and geotechnical engineering, and an awareness of mechanical and electrical engineering sufficient to enable collaborative working with these other disciplines.

You will have experience of structural engineering software such as Tedds Staad.PRO, Robot Structures or similar FEM analysis software, and have experience working within a 3D design environment.

If you’re someone who has a broad range of structural and civil engineering experience and are looking to further develop your career within a forward-thinking consultancy, then we would love to hear from you.
