AECOM AV and Multimedia Consultant in St. Albans, United Kingdom

United Kingdom - London, London

Alternate Locations UK - St. Albans

Job Summary

The Commercial Fit out team within the Building Engineering Division is currently seeking a full time Audio Visual Consultant / Engineer. This role is to be based in at AECOMs European Head Quarters, Aldgate Tower London.

About The Team

As part of AECOM’s Intelligent Building team the group provides Av and multimedia design and support services to complement and enhance the design activities of the Mechanical and Electrical teams. The role covers the design of AV systems across a wide range of industry sectors including office fit out, mixed use, through to multiple government organisations.

About the offices:

AECOM’s new UK headquarters, at Aldgate Tower in east London, is an example of activity-based working in action. The company used the move from its old base in the West End to rethink ideas of what a head office could be and how to energise its workers.

The design strategy designated 50% of the space as collaborative, to foster interaction and informal meetings. There are touchdown and break-out spaces, plus quiet working areas. Internal accommodation stairs complement the usual lifts and escape stairs, encouraging networking. Agile working protocols mean desks are shared by a team, with 25% of them “sit-stand”. Unified communications have replaced desk phones and terminals with laptops, smartphones and pervasive Wi-Fi.

Extensive research, employee engagement and training accompanied the move, which has resulted in the highest utilisation rate of all Aecom’s UK offices. Staff attrition has more than halved in the year since Aecom moved in. Feedback from teams throughout the building has been positive, with employees noting that the new workplace has increased productivity.

The successful candidate(s) will need to show how they can add value to AECOMs offering to the commercial sector building on AECOMs experiences at Aldgate Tower.
