About Frugal Consultancy & Design

Freelance mechanical engineering design using 3D CAD & CAE modelling.

Frugal Consultancy & Design is a UK limited company established by Tom Hartley in 2012, which operates from Hull's C4DI. Tom has been in the design engineering profession since 2004 and has delivered many successful projects for various clients. The majority of Frugal's work output is created directly by Tom, though he'll engage & manage subcontractors from time to time to help with larger projects.

Frugal's aim is to provide flexible, reliable, and high-quality 3D models and mechanical design to UK SME's and larger clients for whom traditional design consultancy perhaps hasn't delivered great value in the past.

Services include:
  • Mechanical engineering design.
  • Fabrication design.
  • Structural steel design & analysis.
  • Multidisciplinary scheme layouts for bids & tenders.
  • 3D + information modelling of unusual (non-building) assets.
Tom is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, Loughborough qualified Product Design &; Manufacturing Engineer, and a highly skilled 3D modeller. As a member of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Engineering Designers, he works to those institutions professional standards and is ever mindful of the ethical & sustainability principles overseen by the Engineering Council and Royal Academy of Engineering.
