The Job

Role Purpose:

To act as Mechanical Designer and Project Engineer for various projects, ensuring workable mechanical designs are produced in 3D and 2D CAD for a range of anaerobic digestion related projects. The role will involve close coordination with both the process engineer and site installation teams to ensure a fully integrated design is produced.

To become involved during the site installation to ensure that good engineering practice is adhered to, on-going technical queries are dealt with in a timely fashion and both good and bad experiences are fed back into future designs to ensure that we learnt from our experiences.

  • To provide initial conceptual arrangement drawings for proposals and develop into 3D models and 2D general arrangement drawings
  • To provide mechanical design input to ensure that the design outputs are achieved on time, meet the design requirements, and achieve an acceptable level of quality.
  • To ensure that the design is fully integrated and coordinated with both the process engineer, civil designer and electrical engineer.
  • To read and review relevant specifications and to incorporate feedback to ensure that the mechanical design incorporates all requirements.
  • Identify potential technical improvements and cost savings for the work packages.
  • Where appropriate to act as project engineer in managing and coordinating work packages and associated deliverables, including design, procurement, site liaison.
  • To provide mechanical design support/ throughout the project (i.e. feasibility, outline design, detailed design, construction and commissioning).
  • To develop best value, robust designs solutions which can withstand external challenge.
  • To understand and communicate the mechanical design risk and assumptions associated with the project and support the Design team in managing this risk. To record the risks and assumptions as the project progresses.
  • To offer technical guidance and governance for design review meetings and assessments to ensure that risks and hazards are designed out or minimised to an acceptable level.
