OFFICE LIFE

We work in a relaxed studio environment with a friendly, open atmosphere. From interns to Partners, every suggestion is given consideration.

WORK HARD

We have high expectations of each other and work as a team to deliver things we’re all proud of. We encourage communication and for our people and our ideas to be challenged. Enjoying work is compulsory, a happy team works better together.

PLAY HARD

We’re a sociable bunch, we work hard but we know how to have fun too. Every year we have both a Christmas party and a Summer event. But that’s not all. With sporting sweepstakes, bake offs, Halloween socials and of course the obligatory Friday offload and unwind at The Fox.

Graduate Testimonial

“Solid Structures has been an ideal company to start my career.

It’s big enough to experience jobs ranging from domestic to large commercial, whilst intimate enough to know each employee personally. Everyone is very friendly and has welcomed me from day one, building my confidence and eliminating the daunting graduate transition period.

Within each project I have had the opportunity to work side by side with employees of every level, from other Graduates to Senior Engineers and Directors.

Having already completed a year in a structural design office on my university sandwich year, the continuous interaction with senior team members and friendly environment has enabled me to hit the ground running with my design work. Within a year of working here I have already started to be given sole responsibility of projects, and am confidently building up a healthy portfolio for my Chartership.”
