At Coldwells Build, we understand the importance of trust. We’re a family-run business with recognised industry credentials and residential-building experience you can rely on.
Quality standards and open communication are both crucial elements of any successful project – these are the values we pride ourselves on. We’re realistic. We’re meticulous. We thrive on doing things differently.
Based in Aberdeenshire, we founded Coldwells Build in 2016. Known throughout Scotland as one of the country’s only certified Passivhaus builders, we’re a compact, highly motivated team who are committed to offering a more people-centred approach to the build process.
With qualifications in carpentry and joinery, Ross began his career as a 16-year-old apprentice building new homes in Aberdeenshire. He broadened his craft on construction sites in Australia, Canada and London, where he managed major residential and commercial projects.
Ross is dedicated to changing Scotland's homes for the better, making brilliant, high-quality housing available to all.
A trained communicator, Clare co-founded Coldwells Build with the aim of improving consumer experience within the construction process. Working previously as a television director and journalist, she understands more than most, about the power of detail, organisation and timing.
She believes in keeping an open dialogue with clients throughout their build, so they feel empowered to make informed decisions and get the home they’ve always wanted.
We’re fortunate enough to bring together a small team of like-minded individuals who are all committed to creating world-class homes. Through our dedication to training and promoting from within the company, we can ensure our values, skillset and standards are passed from one generation of craftspeople to the next.
We believe the highest calibre homes are the result of intelligent design, innovative construction and outstanding customer service - so much so, that we were named winners at the Federation of Master Builder Awards in 2021 and 2023. Our expertise, specially trained workforce and timeless architectural aesthetic helps bring design-led spaces to life.
