About Oatway Design

What we do

Oatway Design Ltd is a specialist mechanical & electrical design engineering and consultancy firm located in Plymouth. We strongly believe that M&E services are the heart of any building and with our decades of expertise and innovative designs, we aim to bring our clients’ projects to life.

Our engineers work with a range of clients on high profile and large scale projects to simple extensions in the commercial, educational, residential and healthcare industries. We work with new builds and maintenance or renovation projects – we’re here for the life cycle of our clients’ buildings.

Our History

After successfully operating for 22 years as D&J Oatway, Stephan Oatway took ownership of the company from his father rebranding the company to Oatway Design Ltd. From 2014 onwards, Oatway Design continued to maintain and build on the multi-decade relationships established from D&J Oatway.

Stephan built in new streams of work tackling big and small projects across the UK and beyond. In growing the business from its humble roots, Stephan has built a dynamic expert team who have the same values for excellence and responsiveness. They similarly bring decades of experience and a hunger to keep pushing for fresh designs that achieve that elusive blend of finance and sustainability.

Our Values

We have developed a strong reputation locally for building great working relationships and for identifying innovative solutions that fit with project timescales, budgets and the clients’ ambitions. Our clients’ satisfaction and sustainable technologies always have and will continue to be at the forefront of our design philosophy. As a company, we take great pride in being able to provide a service that benefits the local community and to be part of the story that helps a community to grow and evolve.

The Future

In August 2021, we announced our new office in Salisbury. The Salisbury office is an important step to expand our presence in south of the UK and the surrounding areas. This is a great chance for us to build on the reputation we have established in the southwest. We look forward to the future of the company and to the new relationships we will create along the way.
