Max Fordham LLP

We are building services engineers who bring buildings to life with beautiful engineering.

For more than 50 years, the engineers at Max Fordham have been driven by sustainability in building design. It was our founding principle and it continues to guide us to this day.

Our engineers are brilliant thinkers as well as pragmatic doers. We understand and consider all of the details that influence how a building can make you feel. We think of ourselves as whole building engineers. We work closely with the world’s leading architects to design buildings that really work, and that means we’re concerned with the big picture as well as the small details.

OUR AIM is the delivery of beautifully engineered buildings: low-energy buildings that work for the people who use them. We believe buildings should respond to the environment in which they exist. That’s our starting point and it drives our engineering approach, making sure that we embed principles of sustainability in everything we do.

OUR APPROACH differs from that of conventional environmental building services engineers. Each member of our team is trained in electrical and mechanical engineering, environmental design and building physics. This training takes place in-house, creating an integrated understanding that considers the whole building. We deliver buildings that work, with a focus on detail and finish, to ensure our engineering serves the architecture. It's the way Max trained his team and it's an approach that has endured.

OUR GRADUATE ENGINEERS can look forward to becoming involved in some of the most prestigious building projects in the UK and abroad, as well as, humanitarian projects, teaching, and participation in the wider engineering community.

OUR AWARD-WINNING firm is founded on democratic principles and we are proud of our established, good-employer reputation. CIBSE Young Engineers Network named Max Fordham Employer of the Year 2013, and Employer of the Year (Medium-sized Firms) in 2012 and 2014. Our graduates have voted us into the top 3 smaller engineering companies in The Job Crowd 2015/16 and 2016/17, while university students have ranked our Practice in the Guardian UK300 Top 300 Graduate Recruiters for 2014/15.
