Work on proper brain teasers

The world's largest steel structures, unique landmarks, and the lock gates of the Panama Canal are so technically complex that they were featured in 'Extreme Engineering' on the Discovery Channel. At Iv-Consult, we work on proper brain teasers. Projects with technical challenges so complex and specialised that not all engineering companies can provide a solution. As a Structural Designer, it is your job to ensure even the smallest parts of the largest steel structures are carefully developed and prepared for production at steel construction companies worldwide. We are a small, close-knit team where flexibility is valued. In short: a challenging position where no day and no project are ever the same.

Iv-Consult specialises in designing the most complex steel and movable structures for virtually all sectors and areas of application. If you have ever admired the view of the British capital from the London Eye, then you will be interested to know that Iv-Consult designed the construction! But we are capable of so much more. From a unique movable bridge to new offshore concepts, as long as it concerns special steel: we convert technically almost impossible problems into feasible designs! We have also worked on the stinger of the Pioneering Spirit, the world's largest construction vessel, and on Mammoet's super heavy lift cranes. In addition, we have performed a safety investigation on the Halfweg gas platform!

What do we expect of you?

We are looking for a graduate with a secondary/higher vocational (MBO 4/HBO) degree in Civil/Mechanical Engineering with approximately two years of relevant work experience as a 3D Tekla modeller/drafter and extensive experience in the field of steel structures and the detailing thereof. You must know your way around steel and mechanical structures like no other. As a structural designer, you will contribute to making the plan and detailed drawings for various types of steel structures (offshore, buildings, bridges) in the Tekla drawing program. Experience with other software drawing packages such as Inventor is advantageous as we work closely with our mechanical engineering department. In addition, good command of the Dutch and English languages, both spoken and written, is essential.
