Fostering learning

Designer Group is a leading International Engineering and Energy solutions group, headquartered in Dublin. Established in 1992, the Group has operations in the UK, Kenya, Uganda, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Barbados, Germany, France and USA. 

We have 1,300 employees delivering solutions to global companies across multiple sectors. We provide turn-key packages for the design and installation of utilities, and also an ongoing operations and maintenance service through our dedicated subsidiary Sensori FM.

Our people are the foundation of our continued growth across all client sectors. We invest in our people and have a philosophy of continuous professional development. This investment has produced an innovative and passionate team that deliver projects for our clients safely, efficiently and to the highest standards in the industry.

Dedicated Training Academy

We know people are hungry for knowledge and we try to meet this need by fostering learning and supporting continuous development for apprentices, tradespeople and engineers. 

This commitment has been strengthened by opening a dedicated Training Academy in 2016, delivering a range of services such as Safe Pass, Manual Handling and Working at Heights training. In 2018, the Training Academy received City and Guilds accreditation which allows us to deliver Electrical Testing and Verification courses both internally and externally.

Building Information Modelling

Throughout the planning and implementation phases, we adopt Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) as part of our standard practice. VDC represents new technologies and creation of methodologies based on a visual experience. It enhances existing planning, communication, safety, quality assurance and productivity procedures. 

Our Building Information Modelling (BIM) Level 2 accreditation allows us to seamlessly manage data. We are passionate about the development of VDC, which is why we partner with high-profile industry and academic bodies to drive related research to the next level. The ideal candidate for a role within the BIM Department in Designer Group would have an engineering background or have a trade related to MEP.

Engineering

Designer Group’s engineering team is made up of both mechanical and electrical design engineers and project engineers. Engineers work on a wide range of both design projects and construction projects and utilize the latest technology and software available. 

Designer Group holds an Engineering Ireland Continuous Professional Development accreditation. All Designer Group engineers are encouraged to continue learning and developing throughout their career.

Biomass/Renewable Energy Projects

Designer Group offer extensive expertise in developing biomass energy projects, from industrial boilers producing 6 tonnes of steam per hour to 65MW electrical power plants, burning a wide range of fuels from rice husk to chicken litter and Construction and demolition wood.

Biomass energy allows for a reduction in energy costs and exposure to fluctuations in fossil fuel costs. Furthermore, biomass can reduce a client’s carbon footprint by replacing fossil fuels with carbon-neutral fuel sources. 

The carbon emissions produced from sustainable biomass combustion is offset by the carbon sequestered during the growth of the next crop of material.

Biomass is typically developed with local supply chains, providing local employment through production and processing. Biomass supply chains are developed to conform to international standards for sustainability.
