Cobalt Green was established as a partnership in 1992 and became incorporated in 1997.
Alastair Tweedie, the Managing Director, is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor. He became a professional member of the RICS in 1991. He originally trained in private practice for seven years, working on a variety of projects, ranging from civil engineering to social housing, before starting Cobalt Green.
Cobalt Green’s full-time long-standing employees are supplemented by a base of regular, quality, established subcontractors. We invest in training and have had a number of employees successfully complete apprenticeships under our tutorship.
Cobalt Green encourages a good working relationship between clients, consultants, employees and subcontractors with a ‘can do’ attitude. Regular progress meetings on site, attended by the Managing Director, as well as Contract Managers or Site Agents, are programmed to monitor progress and ensure any issues or concerns can be resolved quickly. Alternative solutions can be recommended if needed, therefore keeping the project on track.
We have established ourselves as preferred contractor to a number of our clients and consultants, and secure our work both by negotiation and competitive tender.
We are a registered contractor with the National House Building Council (NHBC) and can offer 10 year warranties for appropriate domestic projects if required. Our NHBC registration number is 92030.
Health and Safety of employees, clients and members of the public is of utmost importance. We are a member of the Building Safety Group who advise on our site and office health and safety policy and systems. They also attend our sites unannounced at three/four weekly intervals providing written reports which may highlight any areas to improve; any suggestions are implemented swiftly.
Cobalt Green’s employees, including the Managing Director, have completed the CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) five day course. This is updated at regular intervals. Two of these employees are also qualified first aiders.
We are members of the CITB and are registered with the Environment Agency.
