Our Practice

Cole Jarman has established a reputation for excellence amongst its wide private and public sector client base.

Our ethos is to provide practical and cost effective solutions for our clients. Our advice is developed by fully qualified consultants and is based on rigorous technical analysis, backed up with sophisticated computational and modelling tools. Our quality control procedures ensure our product is delivered to the most exacting standards in a clear, concise and well-presented form. The vast majority of our work stems from repeat business and direct recommendation. We have worked on projects throughout Europe and Asia and the international experience we have acquired adds value to all our project work.

“Cole Jarman played an invaluable role in providing technical expertise and advice. This support has helped NDCS achieve a key campaign victory that will help ensure better listening environments in schools for all deaf children.”

National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS)


Our philosophy is based on the underlying principle that acoustic effects can be described and quantified scientifically.

We employ acoustic design solutions and noise control strategies which are founded on robust analytical techniques, innovation and extensive experience.

We are mindful of specific constraints, sustainable design requirements and the importance of adding value.

We apply all of our knowledge and expertise according to a structured Quality Management system certified as compliant with ISO 9001:2015.

Giving Back

The UK Government encourages businesses to give something back to society through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and this is supported at Cole Jarman. We are committed to supporting local charities, including the Surrey Deaf Children’s Society. We have also provided professional services on construction projects for charities, working at a discounted rates to help deliver cost effective facilities.


The practice, originally titled Vernon Cole Associates, was established in 1993 by Vernon. Neil joined Vernon in 1994, and the practice became the partnership Cole Jarman Associates. The partnership steadily grew, and in 2005 became Cole Jarman Limited, with Philip and Tom becoming Directors. In July 2013, Philip replaced Vernon as Managing Director and Tim joined the Directorial team. The company became part of the RSK group in 2017, providing new backing to our continued growth.
