About us

Bill Tarbotton and Robert Taylor met each other when they worked as the Contracts Manager and Quantity Surveyor for a previous employer. They first discussed starting their own business doing commercial fit outs in late February 2010 and, from time to time, would revisit this idea. Come the end of summer 2012 their mind was made up and they began to plan the start of Colnesett Limited.

From their premises in Hadleigh, Suffolk, the company started to trade in March 2013 and has gone from strength to strength, gradually growing the turnover organically so that during the current financial year they will exceed one million pounds. During this period Colnesett have attracted many well-known clients for office to their doors, for office refurbishments, shop fit outs, building project management and more. Including, MLM Consulting Engineers, Caring Homes Group, Savills, Elwell Taylor, Kier and Aldeburgh Yacht Club amongst many others, apologies are sent to those that have not been listed.

Colnesett have carried out work as far afield as Oxfordshire and the South Coast. But are at most competitive throughout East Anglia, the Northern Home Counties and into London. During this time they have built a good, strong list of sub-contractors from many and varied trades together with a little help from trial and error. Colnesett is always looking out for new names to add to the Sub-Contractor Approved List.

During 2016 Colnesett promises to be expanding the business further and upskilling members of staff. There are some exciting plans that will be slowly publicised as the year progresses. As always Colnesett values loyal customers and promises old and new the best attention at all times.
