The Opportunity…


We are looking for a Civil Building Architect to join Edvance UK. Edvance is a joint venture between EDF and Framatome, and is responsible for the design of the nuclear island for the Hinkley Point C (HPC) project.

As a Civil Building Architect, you will take responsibility of the prestressing gallery for the SZC project from a civil design point of view. This position has a potential to grow by incorporating the responsibility of the design of the common raft for the nuclear island into your scope, you would be then supported by other engineers for which you would be responsible. You will be interacting with civil designers, technical departments and project managers and will be responsible for the configuration of the SZC structure and ensuring it’s implemented and followed.


This is an excellent opportunity for you to be part of one of the largest, most complex projects in Europe; something vital to the country’s future energy needs.
