Our History

COBRAFER Construction has its origins in COBRAÇO Ltd, founded over 40 years ago in the city of Belo Horizonte by the Nogueira family. COBRAÇO grew steadily until becoming the largest steel importer in Brazil, and then branching out to construction project management under its Central de Representações division.

It is from this division that in 2012, Graziella Nogueira, daughter of one of the COBRAÇO founders, started operating COBRAFER Construction in British Columbia, Canada. Since those early days, COBRAFER has grown to be one of British Columbia’s most respected privately-owned subcontractors, offering services in residential and commercial concrete works, general contracting, development, framing, and consulting. The company is guided by the Nogueira family second-generation leadership, who continue to embrace the spirit of creativity and innovation that propelled COBRAÇO forward in the past.

COBRAFER remains unified by the core values that have grounded the company and kept it focused on its ultimate goal of building long lasting partnerships with its clients and team members. COBRAFER and it’s team members and subcontractors combine now for over five decades of experience working on projects from foundations and mid-rises to hi-rise and architectural concrete formwork, retaining walls and finishing.

Leadership

Graziella Nogueira

Owner & Lead Carpenter

After advancing her business leadership skills in the fashion industry and international trade, Graziella’s desire to work with her hands led her to carpentry. Considering her family background in Brazil—her father’s family is in the steel-importing business and her mother is involved in an engineering and architectural firm—it was an inevitable transition. Construction is in her blood.
