We work closely with Architects, MEP engineers, Civils, Quantity surveyors, Project managers and main contractors to build the structure of a building.

You will be scheming options based on the architect's layouts and making sure the building is designed to code while being as cost-effective as possible.

Depending on the contract you'll co-ordinate and manage other consultants such as geotechnical engineers and MEP.

The way to become one is to get an accredited degree in structural/civil engineering and join a company, the career is fantastic if you like building things and solving problems. It is relatively well paid in London, however don't expect a magic circle law firm salary.

It is a type of civil engineering. You need to get a masters (4 years at university) in civil engineering. It is mainly about designing steel and concrete beams, columns in buildings and bridges. I have not graduated yet, but I can tell you it’s not boring and the salary is above the average for a university graduate as is the case with nearly all of engineering.
