About

Cobb & Company is a structural engineering consultancy based in East London, specialising in refurbishment, conservation and detailed modern structures. Work ranges from small domestic alterations to larger projects, with Professional Indemnity Insurance up to a value of £3m.

Founder and principal Fiona Cobb is a structural engineer with extensive experience working on residential, religious, education, community and arts buildings worth between £0.1m and £14m. Fiona worked for award winning Price & Myers for 22 years from 1997, including 15 as an Associate, resulting in a broad portfolio of work. She founded Cobb and Company in 2019.

Fiona says: "I have had the pleasure of working on a diverse range of projects; both in size and scope. I particularly enjoy breathing new life into old buildings and it is a delight to work on projects where the structure is integrated with the architecture. I'm lucky to have worked on buildings of national and cultural significance, which have won national awards and been published in architectural journals."

Fiona will be supported on larger projects by a number of trusted collaborators.
