“We chose Contrada for the fit out of our second Birdies Crazy Golf and Cocktail Bar site in Islington, London. From early on in the design stage they understood our concept and brought that to life through the construction phase and within our budget requirements. A crazy golf course is a complex project but Contrada approached this in a thorough and methodical manner, transparent on programme and budget, whilst overcoming a number of un-forseen MEP problems along the way. Throughout the process – from tender & pre-construction phase, all the way through to snagging and handover – we have found Contrada to be friendly, dedicated and proactive; finding solutions not problems and ultimately delivering a top quality space we are all very proud of. Working with them has been a pleasure and we look forward to working with them on future projects.”

Jenny Coen | RJI Capital


“Contrada completed a total interior refurbishment of RICS’ headquarters at Parliament Square in 2009. A complex building with a mixture of Victorian and 70s construction, effectively 3 buildings in 1. The design goal was to create a fusion with RICS’ long history and its future destiny. A top to bottom refurbishment while the staff remained in situ. Not an easu project, but in Contrada, RICS had a partner with an enthusiastic business owner and a committed team that approached the project with honesty and integrity. Not just a delivery, but a partnership in a delivery with a shared pride for a fantastic building”

Sean Tompkins | Chief Operating Office | RICS

We are grateful for their commitment and dedication in ensuring that they delivered on what they had promised”

This is a Grade II listed building and required a diligent and considered approach to the building works. We found Contrada to be dedicated to the project as an entire team, showing the care and commitment required to achieve the high quality of the works. In respect of the programme and budget, they were at all times open and communicative, leaving no surprises. Working with them as individuals and as a team was a pleasure, good fun and we would not hesitate in working with them again”

“Contrada have been a trusted contracting company for a number of years. They are able to deal with difficult briefs and deliver in any number of locations worldwide and closer to home.

Contrada are part of a small group of companies Shed trust to do a project justice and execute the build properly”

Nick Stringer | Founder | Shed Design


“Taylor Wessing engaged Contrada to carry out the works to convert an archive storage area of approximately 2,00 sq ft into modern suite of 4 meeting rooms with adjacent tea and coffee point. These works were carried out to a high specification and were completed within both the allotted timeframe and budget. We were very pleased with the works at the time and would have no hesitation in recommending them for similar type works”

Tim Grant | Head of Facilities | Taylor Wessing LLP


“We have been more than happy with Contrada from start to finish.  Martin came personally to make sure that everything was planned properly, gave us advice and suggestions and even disagreed with some of our plans if Martin thought that they would not work. The installation was carried out within the agreed timeframe and the installers were very professional, and took the needs of the other tenants in the building seriously, to ensure minimum disruption.  The finished offices were better than we had expected, and we are delighted with the outcome”

I am also very happy to confirm that the work executed by Contrada was to a very good standard, and that at all times they gave great consideration to the in situ tenants and achieved minimal disruption whilst undertaking the work. Particular recognition and praise is due to the site foreman, Mr Tony Thira, who was proactive at all times in addressing and solving the odd unforeseen problems that arose on site.
