Price & Myers was established in 1978 in London as a firm of consulting structural engineers, with the aim of working with good imaginative architects, to make excellent buildings. In our first 30 years we have completed over 18,000 jobs, and won over 250 awards; we now also have offices in Nottingham and Oxford, and currently employ about 130 people.
Our work covers an unusually wide range, both in size and type. Projects vary from minor alterations and extensions, to major new buildings and refurbishment projects, using the most recent developments in materials and construction techniques. We have advised on the repair and restoration of many historic buildings, and we have worked with some of the country's leading architects on the design of many outstanding modern buildings. Our diverse project portfolio allows us to find the right solution for every job.
The majority of our work at Price & Myers is the design of building structures. Our aim is to create simple and elegant structural engineering, minimising the complexities that can compromise aesthetics and function, slow construction, and escalate costs.
Price & Myers Geometrics applies elements of form, structure, materials and manufacture to interpret unusual ideas and make them a reality. These projects often seem complex, but are built on tried and tested principles of geometry and engineering. We are involved from the initial modelling to the final fabrication.
Price & Myers Sustainability offers technical support to clients & designers to improve the environmental performance of their buildings. Our designs have to respond to the local environmental conditions of a site, like Scheduled Ancient Monuments, or Sites of Special Scientific Interest. But we also consider the broader environmental impact of our buildings, wherever the site. Whether it's the use of recycled materials, exploiting the thermal mass of the structure as part of a passive cooling strategy, or aiming for BREEAM certification, we look to design for sustainability wherever we can.
Price & Myers Infrastructure offer our clients underground drainage design, detailed ground modelling, road pavement design and flood risk assessments. The team collaborate closely with structural engineering colleagues from initial concepts to co-ordinated detailed design. Heavy emphasis is placed on sustainability in our civil engineering work.
Price & Myers are always looking for enthusiastic and talented structural engineers to join our team and welcome speculative applications from graduates with at least 2-6 years' relevant experience. Please email a CV and covering letter to David Derby (London office), Ian Flewitt (Oxford) or Lois Plaistow (Nottingham) using the address firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking for a number of sharp-minded, confident, sociable people who want to work on a variety of high-quality and challenging projects within our Structures teams. We offer a competitive salary and attractive benefits package. If you are, or will be, a Structural/Civil Engineering graduate seeking employment commencing Summer/Autumn 2014, or are an undergraduate seeking a 2014 Summer placement, please email a CV and covering letter to Jamie Beeson using one of the following addresses as appropriate: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org . We will be reviewing the applications in February 2014 and carrying out a fairly informal interview process in March.
Our offices in London, Nottingham and Oxford are characterised by an open, friendly atmosphere. Partners sit with their teams and are involved in every project, giving help and support to their engineers, and graduates will find that responsibility for managing projects comes very quickly for those that show ability. All of our offices are located centrally in each of these vibrant cities, with numerous good restaurants, shops, bars, pubs and theatres within easy reach, making them ideal for those looking for an active social life.
The core of our work is the design of building structures, and we also have dedicated departments for Geometrics, Sustainability and Infrastructure. The wide variety of projects we undertake is particularly suited to graduates who want to get a good grounding in all aspects of building structures design. This on-the-job experience, combined with the other formal and informal training offered by the practice, means that we have an exceptionally high pass rate in the Institution of Structural Engineers' Chartered Membership Exam.
