Project / Architectural engineer
AIP is looking for an engineer to help us with international design & build projects. We develop challenging designs from conceptual to manufacturable structures in collaboration with renowned architects & clients. Would you like to work on international projects with renowned architects, engineers & clients? Please read the job description below and join our team!
As an engineer in our team, we expect you to take on the following tasks. The time dedication to individual tasks is flexible and dependent on the status of incoming & running projects.
Analyse incoming designs. Develop a custom building scheme with scopes of work and rough material estimations. Communicate these through drawings to the team and ultimately to the architect and client.
Design Development. Develop base models, materials & principal detailing in close collaboration with the architect, structural engineer & production.
Produce production data to fabricate samples to visualise & contractually define principal detailing. Produce scale models with our inhouse 3D priner & laser cutter.
Produce fabrication drawings. Set up structure of subassemblies & parts. Produce shop drawings & digital data for individual part fabrication.
In design development, we rely and apply our understanding of industrial & digital fabrication techniques like:
CNC steered part production. Laser- , water- & plasma cutting or 3D milling.
Sheet metal bending/folding
3D metal forming (ship building)
Modular construction techniques & parametric optimizations.
Architectural exposed structural steel fabrication (custom welding processes).
Complex casting of concrete & metals.
Custom surface manipulation. Polishing, engraving & pagination of copper alloys.
+ Whatever technique it takes to realize a future bespoke vision.
We don’t expect experience with all of these but we ask a curiosity to learn and dive in to new techniques as they come along.
The current backbone of our workflow is Rhino (concept) & Solid Edge (production). Assisted with an in-house development of Grasshopper scripts to assist the design development. Experience in at least one of these software is a necessity.
What we offer:
Personal development opportunities.
Office position in Rotterdam with the flexibility to work when & where you find fit.
A position in an enthusiastic team of a growing company.
Opportunities to explore new business ideas or to engage in R&D of products or fabrication techniques.
