We utilise an octonionic construction of the finite simple group $\mathrm{E}6(q2)$ to construct the group $2\mathrm{E}6(q)$ as a subgroup which preserves a certain Hermitean quadratic form defined on the elements of the Albert algebra over $\mathbb{F}{q2}$. Along the way we also illuminate some of the subgroup structure.
