Acoustic Consultant - Manchester / Full time


Competitive + Bonus

Manchester, North West



Practice and studio context
BDP’s Acoustics team offers a full consultation service and specialises in building and architectural acoustics. Our position within a fully interdisciplinary design practice makes our offer unique, and allows our consultants greater understanding of each design discipline through close working relationships; be that with our architects, engineers, designers or urbanists.

Our projects range from small local investigative studies to £billion international schemes, such as the new $1.8bn Muscat airport in Oman. We are currently working on projects in every sector, including education (academies, secondary schools and universities), retail (including masterplans and mixed use), commercial, infrastructure (air and rail) and residential (housing, apartments, care homes and student residential). We work either as part of an interdisciplinary BDP team or direct to external clients in the UK or abroad.

The wider BDP is a major international interdisciplinary practice of architects, designers, engineers and urbanists working together to create outstanding 'places for people'.

We are currently seeking an Acoustic Consultant to work on a wide range of high profile design projects from our Manchester studio.

You will be exposed to the full breadth of our Manchester studio’s disciplines helping to deliver the same high standard of comprehensive and integrated design services that has seen BDP become a leading practice.

You will work closely with clients, architects, engineers and designers to help create successful acoustic design solutions.
