Who we are

Managing Director, Ed Cottrell and Operations Manager, Sasha Lamont have worked in engineering, construction, operations and maintenance throughout Australia, NZ and the Pacific for 20 years.

Cottrell Engineering Services is not confined to one project phase, discipline or team. With high-responsibility experience in design and construction roles, a deep understanding of engineering first principles and project management fundamentals, we identify and control risk in all phases of engineering projects.

We are a group of like-minded people that share common values – steadfast commitment to what we undertake, exceptional quality, efficiency and relationships.

Ed and his team have provided a refined and reliable technical engineering service to EPS over the last few years.

Brett McGrane, Projects Delivery Manager, EPS Group Australia

Lendlease over the past year have utilised successfully the services of Ed and his team on tenders for, and delivery of major Defence projects. CES have proved to be a great resource base to manage the peaks and troughs for us. Their approach is efficient and reliable. CES distilled the project objectives down to key risk areas at tender stage, and provided valuable risk-mitigation strategies that we have adopted early in our delivery. The CES team also provides a useful and flexible ad-hoc resourcing solution for us.

Jamie Flood, Defence Lead - Victoria, Lendlease Building

Cottrell Engineering Services has provided us with exceptional input over the duration of a major Defence base redevelopment project – from input to commercial strategy and procurement, to expert design management and project engineering. CES involvement has been a valuable and reliable strategy for us, particularly in de-risking critical project elements.
