What we do

We provide a wide ranging technical consultancy service with sustainability at the heart of the design process, including:

  • Advising clients on how to achieve net zero carbon through engineering design and specification

  • Building services engineering design including including lighting, power and water systems design with a strong emphasis on reducing energy consumption and CO2 emission

  • Advising on building services aspects of BREEAM and other sustainability assessments

  • Computer thermal modelling of buildings to assess energy use

  • Advising on building-integrated renewable energy

  • CAD and BIM using AutoCAD and Revit

  • Working with design teams including architects, structural engineers, quantity surveyors and specialist consultants


Our Graduate Training Programme

All recent graduates who start with Method will be placed onto the Method Graduate Training Programme.

The programme aims to last around 2-3 years however, this timescale is wholly dependent on the individual paths each person will take. The aim of the programme is to give all graduates a structured pathway for the start of their career. 

All graduates at Method work on real live projects and learn on the job carrying out tasks for those projects – this programme gives you some insight into what to expect within those two years including the formalities of technical reviews, membership of professional institutions etc.

Each Role has a development plan listing an approximate timetable for certain milestones and objectives – this does not aim to be a regimented checklist – it is to be used by you, your line manager and mentor as a guide to aid your development.

Technical and non technical education such as presentation skills and time management courses etc, will make up a significant part of the programme. Everyone’s training is individual and tailored to their strengths and weaknesses enabling you to reach your full potential and gain both reward and satisfaction.

You will also be encouraged to develop your qualifications and become affiliated with an accredited institution such as CIBSE, IMechE, IET or the Energy Institute. 

The business operates across a number of different groups and to ensure each person is given rounded experience our aim is give each person the opportunity to spend a number of days/weeks working closely with other groups – this is more important for certain roles and each person’s experience/knowledge may preclude the need for this therefore it is a flexible approach.

For example – we would expect a graduate M&E Engineer to spend at least 2 weeks with the BIM and CAD team during the first 2 years because it is likely the engineer will need to use CAD and Revit software as part of their tasks as an engineer.

Every year during September a graduate induction day(s) will be held to welcome any joining graduates or those graduates who have started within the previous 12 months.

All graduates will be assigned both a line manager and mentor. Ideally both roles will be filled by separate people but occasionally the roles may be filled by the line manager.

Our goal is to support you throughout your career.
