Engineering Intern

When you walk into a building do you immediately start analyzing it? Do you wonder about the HVAC, electrical system, light fixtures, sprinkler heads, or fire alarm? Well, so do we. We are looking for some passionate interns to join our team of folks who are curious about building systems.

The bulk of our projects are renovations, frequently of only the MEP/FP systems, so it makes for some interesting and challenging projects. The fun of renovation work is dealing with the existing constraints imposed by the structure or building operations. We find ourselves regularly solving problems like how to make the equipment fit into an existing building, or figuring out how the contractor will build your design. We’re such great problem solvers that 95% of our clients would refer us to others. Clients choose us when they want the job done right the first time.

With our headquarters located in the nation’s capital, and our interesting client list combined with our renovation specialty you’ll get to go into some interesting buildings, sometimes seeing history from the inside out. Check out our projects page for some examples of our work.

What Summer Consultants can do for you

  • Give you some real-world MEP/FP industry experience.
  • Provide hands-on experience with tools such as Revit, AutoCAD, Trane Trace, or AGi32 (lighting calcs).
  • Provide you with different projects – we’ve never had identical projects and we rarely have “typical” projects. Buildings are unique and so are their systems.
  • Help you get your boots dirty learning from senior engineers in the field.

What you should bring with you

  • Excellent written and verbal English communication skills.
  • Strong skills in Microsoft Word and Excel.
  • AutoCAD and Revit experience a plus.
