The Design Team at Buttimer are concerned with all pre-installation feasibility, layout and detailed design, as well as required performance or equipment specification for a project. The team of experienced engineers has worked with clients on projects ranging from small once-off, problem solving consulting to full turnkey projects developed from conceptual design to operation. The team work closely with the Project Delivery team to provide design and engineering expertise to our clients.

Buttimer specialise in bulk materials handling design, and regularly deliver systems for handling grains, biomass, wood-chip, iron ore, coal, ash and other agri- or mineral commodities.Whether ship unloading in ports, handling malt in a brewery or milk processing for the dairy sector, our design engineers draw on a wealth of experience: See some of our Example Projects to get an idea of the scope of our design capability. 

In the past our clients have also come to us with unique challenges that require the design of bespoke pieces of equipment - which we have designed and fabricated - or the upgrade of an existing process; engineering solutions to complex materials handling or mechanical problems is at the core of our business.
