We are currently seeking to recruit an experienced Structural Engineer for our DesignMake business, based in our Head office in Sydney, Barangaroo.
This key role within the DesignMake team will be responsible for providing structural design solutions i.e. calculation reports and sketches etc. to Lendlease mass timber projects and offsite manufactured solutions. This role will involve closely liaising with Lendlease project teams from initial concept phase through to delivery, ensuring best practice solutions are implemented.
The use of mass timber and offsite manufacturing is anticipated to grow across the Lendlease group and within the Australian market place. As such it is expected that the technical capability of the DesignMake team will expand over time.
Mass timber represents a new and as yet only partially established supply chain and product solution (at least within Australia). A key element of the role will be to continually explore areas for improvement and R&D in order to maximize the benefits of this construction system.
As the Structural Engineer in DesignMake you may also have some opportunities to work with other regions within the Lendlease group as they explore mass timber and offsite manufacturing alternatives.
Assist in developing a pipeline of projects for the DesignMake business via upfront input into the initial/concept designs for suitability
- Assessment of the use of mass Timber in driving efficiencies from the project brief phase
- Assisting Lendlease project and bid teams in differentiating their projects via the inclusion of mass timber solutions that incorporate Mass timber and design for manufacture and assembly (DFMA) principles
- Provide solid mass timber design advice to project teams
- Undertake structural calculations
- Structurally review and comment on 3D (BIM) models, General Arrangement and Fabrication drawings, material optimisation and loading plans
A tertiary qualification in Engineering is essential for this role; combined with at least 3 years' experience in structural engineering, with sound knowledge of Australian legislation/ certification, European legislation/certification is also desirable. Direct experience of or have a particular interest in mass timber structures will be looked upon favorably.
No matter where your office is, you will be a part of a company that values you. At Lendlease, we invest in you professionally and personally so that you perform to your full potential to leave behind positive legacies in years to come.
Lendlease is a diverse, flexible and inclusive employer of choice. We engage, enable and empower our people. Inclusion sets us all up for success.
