David Combe & Associates (DCA) commenced providing consulting civil and structural engineering services to the SA community in 1985. The quality and reliability of the practice was underpinned by previous Defence, project management and technical skills through a variety of Australian and overseas projects.

Over the next 20 years DCA expanded its fulltime staff and developed experience in most fields of civil and structural engineering to the point where it served a broad client base consisting of Architects, Project Managers, Builders, Property Developers and Owners.

Combe Pearson Reynolds was founded in March 2005 with Partners Neil Pearson and David Reynolds joining David Combe to form a new structural and civil consulting firm. They each brought experiences and abilities from 20 years of building design and construction methods in the South Australian regional areas.

In June 2013 David Combe retired from the practice after a celebrated 30 year career in the consulting engineering field and 15 years in the Australian Military.

In late 2022 a re-branding of the company logo demonstrated CPR’s solid reputation and developed some striking imagery linked to the heritage and regular recognition of the previous brand, whilst developing a platform for the future.

On the 1st May 2024, CPR Engineers Pty Ltd was created to better reflect the brand by which we are known. 

The Directors are pleased that the nature and quality of the work that we deliver provides great value to our Clients and Architect in turning their project concepts into reality.
