About Buro Happold

Buro Happold is an international, integrated engineering consultancy operating in 21 locations worldwide, with 60 partners and over 1700 employees, including some of the world’s leading consulting engineers. For over 40 years we’ve been building our reputation for delivering creative, value led building and city solutions for an ever changing world.

What our people say…


In our recent employee engagement survey, 89% of our people felt Buro Happold valued diversity & inclusivity in the workplace.

We recognise there is always room for improvement and are committed to becoming an even more inclusive global practice. We have bigger ambitions to go further and are already demonstrating our support to overcome the lack of gender, racial, socio-economic and LGBT+ representation in the engineering space and have created a global steering group to drive change across our business.


We aim to create a better world. To help achieve this we put sustainability at the heart of all our projects.

You can see this through our award-winning project, the The Tower at PNC Plaza in Pittsburgh. This project exceeds LEED Platinum criteria and the design allows 92% of the building to be lit naturally during daylight hours


Wellbeing starts with our people.

Most recently we designed an effective office space in Warsaw with a focus on making our employees’ health and well-being a top priority, with the space becoming a ‘living lab’ test environment for cutting-edge office design.

We recognise that health, happiness and productivity are key to life satisfaction and organisational success and environments we are in can influence this significantly.

  • Intern at the Bridges Twam

    During the COVID-19 pandemic I was given the opportunity to work remotely working at Buro Happold. This was something that made my days interesting and much more enjoyable and also gave me the ability to (virtually) socialise with people with experience on my degree which were able to further guide me.

  • Mechanical Engineer Intern

    I loved my time at BuroHappold. I felt my internship gave me a great insight into what working there would be. I was worried they might give me tasks that would not necessarily reflect what an engineer there would be doing, but instead, from day 1, I was working on a project as an extra member of the team....
