At Bryden Wood, the majority of work will be office based with some site visits. We have offices in London, St Albans and Barcelona where our engineers work on projects together. You will be expected to attend meetings to aid with your development and speak with manufacturers regarding products.

Our approach to design is integrated therefore you will be exposed to more areas of construction than building services. We work closely with our clients and you will need to be able to sit in (and contribute) to meetings at our office.

We are a company formed of mechanical and electrical engineers, architects and civil and structural engineers. We also have departments who are mathematical modellers, we have a Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality department who also develop apps for clients and work with engineers to create virtual systems for clients.

We are a social company who mixes between departments, so you are always learning something new.
