Pavement Power – Mechanical Engineering Product Design
How we collaborated with Pavegen for 2 years in developing pavements that can generate power in a this mechanical engineering product design project


We loved working with Pavegen in progressing their pavements that use footsteps to generate power.

The pavement required a highly technical piece of mechanical engineering product design.

As a piece of street furniture there were significant compliance challenges to overcome.

We delivered fully working and engineered designs over a two-year partnership.

the brief

Pavegen’s vision was to help brands integrate sustainability (and a little theatre) into their connections with stakeholders and customers. They wanted to develop a pavement that could use the footsteps that pass over it to generate power. Yet the technicalities of the mechanical engineering required to harvest energy in this way was always going to be a challenge. Which is why they came to us.


Acting as their main design partner for two years we engaged in detailed mechanical design, created 3D models, met compliance requirements and delivered a series of fully working and engineered designs.

the result

Pavegen has made the transition from a vision in a Brixton flat to a respected supplier of innovative alternative energy solutions to Siemens, IKEA, Adidas and many more.
D+P were a great help to Pavegen in our early days producing some excellent mechanical designs for us.
