Engineer your positive impact

Tractebel is a global community of 5000 imaginative experts engineering a carbon-neutral future. Through our game-changing solutions for complex energy, urban, nuclear and water projects, we help our clients create a positive impact towards a sustainable world, where people, planet and profit collectively thrive. 

Work Environment 

We are looking for young, motivated architects and urban designers to join our design team. Our team currently includes 28 architects, urban designers and landscape architects working within the field of spatial design on a wide range of projects: public space, landscape design, infrastructure works, spatial policy studies and research.... 
We are mainly working in Belgium, but have recently started focusing on international projects. We combine precise spatial interventions with an integrated and inclusive approach. In this way, we incorporate broad social issues such as climate change, social polarization, resource scarcity.... as an attitude in the design process within projects. Each project is therefore the result of a close collaboration between designers, engineers and experts. Through an iterative process of sketches, calculations, research, projects are developed that are not only socially relevant, but also have a certain flexibility towards meaning and use.

You can check our Instagram page (Spatial Design Tractebel) to see some ongoing and passed projects.

Tractebel has a philosophy of flexible working hours and work locations. You are welcome in one of our offices (Antwerp, Ghent or Brussels) for at least 2 days a week. On the other days you can work at home, thus avoiding long travel times and balancing work and private life.

 

Job Description 

  • As an architect-urbanist, you independently work out urban, landscape or architectural designs of varying scale and content, from concept phase to tender dossier.
  • You coordinate and substantively manage a design team of (junior) architects and urban planners for your projects.
  • Client contacts are maintained and you report project progress, budget monitoring, timing, client satisfaction.
