DGMR/Intern or Graduate Building Physics

Intern or Graduate Building Physics

As an international student you have come to study in the Netherlands. But wouldn’t it be nice to experience the practice as well before your choose the topic of your Master thesis? Would you also like to discover what we do? We are happy to share our knowledge with you.

About DGMR

It is our conviction that people are most successful in a sustainable, safe and healthy environment. Every day we challenge ourselves to come up with creative solutions. Effective for society. Innovative for clients. Crucial to the comfortable living environment of today and tomorrow.

In 1980, engineers Van Dalfsen, Gies, Meerdink and Van Rangelrooij started a new and independent engineering and consultancy agency: DGMR. Because they wanted to connect quality to creativity. To seek out the boundaries of possibilities, off the beaten path. To think along with clients in order to surprise them with optimal and integrated solutions.

We provide advice on building physics, sustainability and fire safety for New Babylon in The Hague, the Timmerhuis in Rotterdam, Pulse in Delft, Naturalis in Leiden or the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Valued advice in versatile and high-profile projects.

Next to projects we think that sharing and developing knowledge is really important to stay a frontrunner in our working field. We had quite a lot of interns and graduation students over the past fifteen years, both Dutch and international students, and they were all very happy at doing so. Subjects were for example climate adaptation, big data on NZEB buildings, parametric design of Active House, fire safety of car parks and biobased facades. We also joined the MOR team from TU Delft in 2019 as a coach on building physics.

We are looking for you

We are looking for inquisitive and enthusiastic students who are currently following HBO or TU Architecture, Civil Engineering, Building Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Climate & Management or equivalent. Do you have a passion for building physics & sustainability, facade technology or fire safety and affinity with both construction and installation technology, then we have various options for you.

More about this vacancy

  • What will you do in an Internship?

    You participate in projects to discover what it means to work at a consultancy. You work on challenging projects together with a project manager. We ensure that you get to see as many aspects of the profession as possible and that you can perform as much as possible yourself. This includes carrying out inspections on the building, carrying out building physical or facade measurements (sound, infrared, airtightness) and calculations (thermal bridges, energy performance, daylight, room acoustics, ventilation), calculations for fire spread and clearance time, checking against the Building Decree, BREEAM, WELL or coming up with equivalences.

    Personal quote

    Before my internship in DGMR, I had some doubts about my future career. Through this internship, I have seen what elements of the Building Physics interest me the most and could be the future working options. This way I think I will contribute most to society and sustainability in the built environment.

    Personal quote

    Along with work, there is always room for fun, relaxing time, celebration, and sports. Start of every month DGMR has a company meeting. After that, everyone met in the cafeteria to have a piece of cake. During this time, people from different departments interact with each other, which is important for exchange of knowledge across departments. Every day there is a lunch walk around the city center where people share things about their personal life. Which differs greatly from my experience in India. I find this Dutch culture essential because it brings social aspects. People get to know each other, grow trust and friendship.
