Experienced Design Engineers

Design Sectors


Nova Design offer subcontract mechanical engineering design services for mechanical design projects from our modern design office in the West Midlands. Since 1988, we have offered our engineering design services across the majority of mechanical engineering disciplines including aerospace tooling and ground support equipment, automotive tooling and mechanical handling systems, process industries, general mechanical industry, the nuclear industry and also structural steelwork. Our design engineers are focused on providing a service to deliver innovative design solutions to mechanical engineering problems.

Nova’s mechanical design engineers use the latest in 2D drafting and 3D modelling CAD software running on modern IT hardware platforms to ensure maximum design efficiency.

Due to the wide variety of industries and clients we service, we are familiar with working on design projects under different industry and customer design and standard practices.

Nova can undertake engineering drawing and draughting projects across the majority of engineering design disciplines regardless of the size of project, with no job being too big or too small. We possess an experienced team of mechanical design engineers who are flexible, working to our clients quality standards. All of the 2D drawings & 3D CAD models we produce are checked against our ‘total quality’ standards.

The Nova Design Process

Once a design project has been tendered and successfully won by Nova, our Engineering Director and internal design managers lead the design process allocating both suitably experienced engineering design, detail design and design checking resource, together with ensuring any relevant client design standards, CAD preferences and QA procedures are communicated to our internal engineering design team.

Only then does the actual engineering design and development process begin. This process develops, evaluates and finds the best engineering design solution producing calculations, specifications and 3D models together with 2D engineering fabrication drawings for the client.

These outputs are fed via internal and external design reviews, client verifications and final internal checking before the finalised 3D models and 2D fabrication drawings are released for manufacture.

By not outsourcing and having direct control over our internal design resource, Nova are able to keep direct control of the design programme and output quality.
