Fastned

Become part of a fast-growing company that plays a fundamental role in shaping our future! Together with more than 180 colleagues from 35 nationalities, we enable EV drivers around Europe to fast-charge their vehicle with renewable energy and lead the way in making mobility sustainable. In this role you will help us design our big & bright electric charging stations to meet our goal of a European network of 1,000 fast charging stations on prime locations. Fastned is a fast growing, listed scaleup company and is currently active in eight countries (UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and Spain).

 

Your role

As an Architectural Designer at Fastned, you contribute to the success of the company with your creative and spatial thinking, providing station designs that score the highest in customer experience and that integrate our modular Fastned station into the service areas along the highways. In the coming year, you will be strongly focused on designing and developing new locations.

You will be mainly responsible for the station design of new sites, from the initial sketch and site feasibility to liaising with planning authorities to gain approval. In addition, you will contribute to construction solutions needed by our contractors on site. You will be part of the construction visits together with our construction managers and see your beautiful projects being built! Additionally, there may be opportunity to contribute to the development of new Fastned shops and other potential services next to our charging stations.

Your role as an Architectural Designer is crucial to our multidisciplinary team. In your day to day job, you will spend most of your time with our local London team, consisting of other architects, architectural technologists, expansion managers and construction managers. Besides that, you will also be connected to our architects in the other countries. Become part of a young, innovative and growing company in the field of e-mobility! We move fast – and deliver WOW!

 


Key Responsibilities

The focus will be early stages of the design process – concept and planning (RIBA stages 0 to 3), but the ability to produce construction documents and details (Stage 4) will also be necessary when required.

  • Create initial design concepts based on the modular Fastned design standards.
  • Make site visits for initial site assessments. Check suitability of levels, access, procure survey information as necessary and other key criteria.
  • Create full architectural drawing packages required for planning applications
  • Manage the planning application process coordinating with relevant consultants to ensure a full package of information is submitted to the local planning authority – follow up relentlessly until you get that approval!
  • Create 3D visualisations using Enscape/Revit for concept pitches and planning applications.
  • When necessary produce technical drawing packages for tender and construction
  • Collaborating with the in-house expansion and construction teams to provide information in the agreed time
