About Cobb Engineering Co Inc

Cobb Engineering Company was founded on December 17, 1921 when a contract was signed between Fred Cobb and the Cleveland County Drainage District No. 1. With the evolution of motorized transportation happening over the previous 20 years, there were less than 1,000 miles of paved roads in Oklahoma at this time. A student at the University of Oklahoma, Fred Cobb soon graduated and his fledgling company, Cobb Engineering, began to perform a variety of engineering-related services for Cleveland County, including survey and paving projects. Fred eventually was named County Engineer, and within a matter of months, was hired by the City of Norman as City Engineer. When the Great Depression hit Oklahoma in the 1930's, engineering work was hard to come by. About this time, the federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) made it possible for Fred Cobb to perform paving services for the City of Oklahoma City. Many Oklahoma City streets were not yet paved, so Fred Cobb incorporated Assessment Paving as a means to pave city streets. During World War II, the country was going through many changes and Fred Cobb's business was as well. From 1942-1949, a new partnership was formed: Huggins, Cobb and Thompson. Fred Cobb continued to implement Assessment Paving after WWII and began working several new projects for the Kerr-McGee Corporation, including a refinery at Wynnewood, as well as mapping out oil lines for the exploration giant. In the early 1950's, Fred Cobb received his first major assignment from the City of Oklahoma City, designing three large projects that were part of the city's voter-approved 1951 Bond Issue. These contracts occupied much of his time through 1954, when Cobb Engineering Company began work with the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority on the Will Rogers Turnpike. With these successes now under its belt, Cobb Engineering Company's first contract with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) came in 1958 with the Elk City Bypass along what is now called Interstate-40. A year later, Fred Cobb's son, Jim, graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Civil Engineering, and received his Master's degree in Science one year later. With Jim's arrival to the family business (sons Fred Jr. and Robert also worked for Fred Cobb), Cobb Engineering Company would continue its successful reputation in the state of Oklahoma. In the 1960's, Cobb Engineering Company embarked on several more major projects for the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority, including the H.E. Bailey Turnpike, two sections of the Indian Nations Turnpike, as well as construction inspection on the Cimarron Turnpike. Around 1970, Jim Cobb bought the family business outright and ushered in a new era of Cobb Engineering Company , the one we know today. Cobb Engineering Company's first federal aid project for the City of Oklahoma City included a roadway project along South Meridian between S.W. 44th and 29th Streets. At this time, Cobb Engineering Company also embarked on a variety of traffic signalization projects for Elk City, Clinton and Weatherford. In 1980, Cobb Engineering Company established their headquarters at their current N.W. 36th Street location in Oklahoma City. And in 1984, Martin P. (Marty) Hepp graduated from the University of Oklahoma, and the future Cobb Engineering president began working alongside his mentor, Jim Cobb. By the mid-1980's, Cobb Engineering Company's first significant ODOT contract , seven bridge design and construction jobs along State Highway 3 , was established. To accommodate the steady growth their success was now bringing, Cobb Engineering Company ushered in the new century with many exciting developments. In October of 2000, a new building was designed, constructed and opened at 4516 N.W. 36th Street. Two years later, Cobb's realm expanded to include new offices in Duncan and Tulsa, Oklahoma. Also, in 2002, preeminent airport design specialist Terry Leard (of Leard-Bice-Reeder, Inc.) joined the company, bringing the added capability of airport design to Cobb Engineering. Today, Cobb Engineering Company boasts more than 70 professionals, including a self-sufficient survey department led by Vice President Darren Smith, a transportation design team led by Cobb's other Vice President, Taylor Barnes, as well as full-fledged construction management, airport design, site design, municipal design, water resource design and power distribution and transmission design teams. Cobb Engineering Company is now firmly entrenched as a leader and shining example in the state of Oklahoma, demonstrated by the fact that Cobb Engineering is one of the few design engineering firms awarded a contract in one of the largest construction projects in the history of Oklahoma: the I-40 Crosstown Expressway. As demonstrated by its rich history , and apparent in its bright future , Cobb Engineering Company is not only meeting its clients' expectations, but consistently exceeding them.
