Bob Albon is appointed company director
Bob started with Sandy Brown in 2001 becoming an associate in 2005. In 2007 Bob took a sabbatical to travel, including a period working in acoustic consultancy in Australia, returning in 2009. In 2015, Bob relocated from London to open our Birmingham office and was promoted to associate partner in 2017.
Under Bob’s leadership, the Birmingham office is now well established with a team of six consultants working on projects across the midlands, UK and internationally. Over the course of his career Bob has worked on numerous high-profile projects, including the iconic Grand Hotel in Birmingham, the redevelopment of Centre Point in London and The Sheila and Eric Samson Pavilion in Cleveland. He specialises in building acoustics with particular interest in mixed use, historic buildings and the sound insulation of lightweight structures. He regularly acts as an expert witness in planning matters, sits on the Building Acoustics Group of the Institute of Acoustics and is a member of the Low Frequency Impact working group of the Association of Noise Consultants.
Bob’s addition to the board reflects his contribution to the company and follows the incorporation of the business earlier this month, which enables us to consolidate, adapt and continue our growth which has been steady for the past 20 years. We are confident that his influence as director will further strengthen the management team and secure the future of the company.
