Digital Designer

Job Profile

Mott MacDonald is a uniquely diverse global management, engineering and development consultancy that offers a diverse range of opportunities for potential employees to work with World Expert Practitioners on small and large scale projects within Australia and New Zealand.

The Mott MacDonald Group is a dynamic and innovative management, engineering and development consultancy working on landmark projects worldwide. Wholly independent and employee owned, we have staff worldwide working in all sectors including transport, energy, buildings, water and the environment, health and education, industry and communications.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate, and take positive steps to create an inclusive culture.

Job Description

The role is an apprenticeship or a trainee position within our structural digital modelling team for Mott MacDonald in New Zealand. We describe the team as a digital modelling team and not a ‘Revit’ team or a ‘BIM’ team. This is because although Revit is one of the primary modelling tools the team will use many others. BIM is also a process of design that the team employs and promotes, but the team is also involved in the development of the digital engineering workflow, advanced geometry, parametric processes and imagery.

The candidate will have strong computer literacy with some experience in modelling packages. They will develop their modelling skillset in a variety of packages with Revit as the primary tool. They will also have a background in computer programming and algorithm generation. They will also be interested in the built environment with an understanding of key components and systems. They will use this background to develop their digital engineering capability. They will be trained in the use of Revit in building information modelling and in the application of parametric processes in the development of a digital engineering workflow. They will assume a junior role on assigned projects and be responsible for the planning and delivery of the documentation in line with the organisation’s internal processes.

Candidate Specification

General Responsibilities:
  • Assume a junior modelling technician role on assigned projects, reporting to a senior member from the team
