Partners Matt McCormack and Zack Gelfer started The Cobalt Companies in 2003 as two guys with enough passion for building stuff to turn loose couch change into a thriving community-based building company.
We build cool, functional, and creative living spaces in Austin’s thriving urban core for folks who love the vibrant offerings of city living. We also provide construction management services to clients and their designers for custom homes, major remodeling/additions, and commercial site, shell building and tenant finish-out construction. We pride ourselves on superior quality while simultaneously maximizing value using a distinctive set of 4 core competencies.
Our Core Competencies
We’re passionate about making each project unique. During our initial evaluation, we view a particular site as an existing portrait where design and building elements can add to its best qualities to achieve optimal building potential.
We incorporate and standardize selective green building practices into every project that affords real comfort and true cost savings that our clients can recognize immediately — not at some distant point many years down the road.
We all hope to get more joy out of our everyday lives. For some, that means less time commuting and more time doing the things we enjoy. It means appreciating that sometimes less is more, and this philosophy inspires sustainable infill living.
Our team-based approach to the building process recognizes that open communication among client, architect, engineer, designer, and builder is the most important component of a successful collaborative building process.
