H2M Architects + Engineers, a multidiscipline architectural, engineering, environmental consulting firm in the NY Metropolitan Area seeks a licensed Senior Project Engineer to join our NYC team.

Although their work may be hidden in ceilings, behind walls, and under floors, H2M’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers treat it like the main event. With a focus on developing detailed, quality drawings, they meet with each client to establish the full scope of work before putting pen to paper. By spending time in the field, taking measurements, and asking the right questions, they ensure a level of detail that simplifies the bid and construction process and results in fewer change orders.  Our MEP solutions place an emphasis on building performance, energy efficiency, and occupant comfort.  And while our efforts might not be visible in the finished product, the effortlessness they bring to our client’s building’s operations will be.

Come join our multi-disciplined team of architects, engineers and environmental scientists in our New York City office.  We’re looking for a Sr. Project Engineer with 10+ years’ experience in a consulting engineering firm designing heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.  In this role, you will work with other MEP engineers as part of a multi-disciplined design team.  Working with architects, civil engineers, and environmental scientists, you will be executing mechanical engineering design work for both public and private clients.  You will also coordinate the efforts of both in-house and outside teams who handle equipment selection, layout design, load calculations and specifications.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic go-getter who is just as comfortable managing the work as they are interfacing with clients and helping us build our business.  As a part of the H2M Team, you will have the support of our 350+ staff to help you succeed in all aspects of your work.  We’re passionate about our work, dedicated to our clients, and committed to our 80 plus year legacy. We emphasize collaboration and community involvement and promote sustainability in our practice, ensuring that the right projects are developed with minimal impact on the environment.
