Phil Cochran

Colwill Engineering Vice President


As Vice President and Operations Manager, Phil Cochran is responsible for overseeing the electrical design operations for pure design as well as turnkey projects. He began his career in 1978 as an electrician, progressing quickly to the point of taking responsibility for completion of significant projects. He is licensed as both a Registered Professional Engineer in multiple states and as a State of Florida Electrical Contractor. Mr. Cochran has managed some of the most significant and complex projects Colwill Engineering has undertaken. He has played an integral role in the development of the firm, its engineering processes, and in the creation and successful growth of the company’s design build electrical contracting group.

Over the course of experience, Phil has gained a working knowledge of codes and standards applicable to Florida construction.  Preparation of electrical load calculations and evaluation of available distribution methods combined with extensive experience in the construction industry has allowed Phil to design cost-effective and “constructible” solutions for many clients.
