Mr. Newbert is a founding partner of Cobalt Engineering. He designed the first C2000 project in Western Canada (pre-LEED) and one of the first 100% naturally venti-lated office buildings in Canada. As technical director and mentor of Cobalt’s emerging engineers, he draws on over 25 years of diverse industry experience.
