ADP is committed to driving change to address both the climate and biodiversity crisis, while creating high quality architecture and places that evoke joy. Our key principles of Sustainability, Belonging and Engagement capture ambitious targets aligned with the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) and the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge, providing the necessary rigour to accelerate transition to net zero carbon ahead of the UK Government’s 2050 target.
To assist with delivery of these ambitions we are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate graduate with skills in sustainability and building physics, to form part of our expanding environmental team and to collaborate with our architectural teams on an exciting range of projects across the UK. Ideally, we will be using the Government’s Kickstart Scheme to support this role (a link to further information is provided at the end of this document).
We are looking for someone with an enquiring mind and the ability to challenge and inform the design process. The role provides an opportunity for growth and development in an energetic and progressive practice where sustainable and regenerative design form the core values shaping our projects.
Our priority for the position is to develop Passivhaus modelling and embodied carbon analysis (One Click) to drive our projects and sustainability agenda forward. This will be supplemented by supporting our environmental team in providing consultancy services including BREEAM and circular economy strategies.
We are open to candidates from a broad range of disciplines, with different knowledge and interests to complement our architectural skillset and have therefore identified a range of interests and knowledge that could be included. For example, a Building Surveyor graduate, with understanding of life cycle costing analysis and knowledge of BREEAM would be able to support refurbishment and retrofitting projects in addition to working with our BREEAM team.

Role to Include:
With eight studios across the UK, Cyprus and India, and over 50 years’ history, ADP is in the UK’s top 40 architecture practices. We design around the principles of sustainability, belonging and engagement, rethinking the built environment to create a better future.
ADP is an employee-owned practice – meaning that all staff have a say in how the business is run, and everyone benefits from its success. We know that a healthy work/life balance is key to success: previous practice and studio events have included staff barbecues, archery, and a Christmas party at Spanish City in Whitley Bay following our award-winning restoration project. In addition to other benefits, all staff have flexible working hours, with the option to take a three-day weekend every fortnight.
We’re an equal opportunities employer and a “Gold”-standard Investor in People – reflecting our belief that it takes a people-centred practice to create people-centred architecture. Diversity is at the heart of our success, and we welcome applications from underrepresented groups.
How to Apply
