M&E Quantity Surveyor - Data Centres - Europe





It is an exciting time to join MGAC.

We are a growing, global boutique construction consultancy offering a unique opportunity for ambitious individuals looking to work somewhere just that little bit different.

  • You have strong feasibility and cost planning experience
  • You have worked within the data centres sector either for the client or in a consulting capacity
  • Strong experience in the built environment with exposure to both pre and post contract construction stages
  • Passionate about sustainability and an interest in carbon foot-printing and management
  • Familiarity with and commercial awareness of life cycle project costing

  • Regular travel to Europe-based site will be required - between 50-75% of the time is expected to be on site after pre-con stage
  • You may want to be purely delivery-focused on data centre projects, which is fine with us, or you might be interested in helping carve out our M&E team across the European business generally - either way, this means autonomy for you and very strong career prospects as our M&E service line gathers pace
