Margaret Cooke


BSc (Hons) CEng MIStructE
Conservation Accredited Engineer

Margaret leads the conservation and re-use side of the business and is a Conservation Accredited Engineer. She also oversees the HR functions of the Practice.

On the early stages of all our conservation projects, Margaret provides the strategic direction. She has good working relationships with heritage funders and is highly experienced in liaising with Historic England and other Statutory Authorities. Margaret remains visible once the project is on track, supporting our Project Engineers, providing her knowledge and expertise to both the Integral team and the client. Her creative skills stem from her wide knowledge of historic construction techniques and her experience and willingness to solve problems. She believes that good design emerges from a really solid understanding of the client brief and spending time on the early stages of the project.

Margaret is the Cathedral Engineer for Wells Cathedral. A trustee for Clifton Suspension Bridge and a trustee for the Bath Theatre Trust.

Outside work Margaret rows and coaches at Minerva Bath rowing club. When not on the river she can be found in the garden or drinking a lot of tea with friends.
