Vollmer Engineering

Ingenieurbüro Dr. Vollmer was set up in 1994 in Germany as an engineering consultancy specialising in the use of 'renewable' forms of energy and in reducing energy use in buidlings and industrial processes. In 2006, a second office was opened in Strasbourg, France. This was followed in 2007 by the UK consultancy office Vollmer Engineering Ltd in Malvern, Worcestershire.


Our work falls into two main categories:

  • Energy surveys, energy monitoring and efficiency improvements for existing installations
  • Technical design and implementation support for new installations

Our broad knowledge of building services (both renewable and conventional technologies) ensures that all new services are tightly integrated with one another and with existing systems. We see this as key for optimising the performance of systems at minimal operational cost.

Thanks to our long-standing experience in Germany and France, we have gained an enviable reputation for well-engineered biomass heating systems, particularly in the range 200kW-5MW.


Our main customers are local authorities and small to medium-sized manufacturing businesses. UK clients include Staffordshire County Council, Bristol City Council, Plymouth City Council, Poole Housing Partnership, The Carbon Trust, The Cranborne Estate and Gloucestershire University.
