Our Credentials

Dove Thermal has over 30 years’ experience as thermal engineering design consultants for the successful undertaking of product innovation, prototyping and development programmes. We provide resources corresponding with those formerly available through the DTI's Manufacturing and Design Advisory Services operated by the Production Engineering Research Association (PERA) and the Design Council respectively. We received a Design Council award for “Consistent High Standards of Project Management and Design Capability” as its long-term thermal design consultants for related products, plant and systems.


We are engineering and thermal technical designers of plant, processes and related equipment. Where necessary, we can help in drawing-up the Terms of Reference framework for a prospective project, supported by a Gantt-charted project management plan setting out agreed objectives and timescales. Our competence as thermal engineering design specialists working at all levels of industry and commerce guarantees the knowledge and integrity expected of established design professionals in this field.
