Who Are We
Contrada is a refurbishment and new build principle contractor, specialising in the residential, commercial, retail, and leisure sectors. We undertake fit out and refurbishment works for all sorts of clients – large blue chip companies to small individual ones as well as retailers and developers.
Our works include structural works, mechanical and electrical services, IT installations, security, AV, ceiling, partitioning, flooring, specialist joinery, cladding, decorations and just about any other trade
Our projects range from £500 up to £5m but we’re hoping to go higher soon.
We carry out work all over the UK and occasionally abroad. Most of our work is however in the home counties and London areas.
We’re happy to work on traditional types of contracts with the client’s team of architects, project managers, QS and other consultants or design and build projects where we use our own design, services and cost control team
Contrada comes from a Latin word which means ‘to deliver together’
Our approach & promise
We strongly believe in the value of working as a team with the client to deliver a great project – a project we can all be proud of. Our people are what makes us as good as we are. We all care about what we do. We know that a great project is made up of everyone doing their bit, doing what we say we’re going to do. Being proactive.
One thing that never changes is what our clients want – simply a space that meets their expectations of quality, for the cost they expected and in the time we agreed. It’s our job to make sure that always happens and generally we do that, time and again.
We know that a great project is not just the end result but how you get there.
- We promise to be completely honest in everything we do and to act in your best interest
- We promise that you’ll feel we’ve been part of your team
- We promise to be as proactive in our management as you expect us to be
- We promise to make your problems our problems and do our best to solve them
- We promise to deliver a value for money project, on time and to the level of quality you expect
We have an important responsibility to maintain the environment.
We self monitor our impact and strive to reduce our impact on the environment in the following ways:
- Using materials such as timber from sustainable sources
- Using local materials and services where possible
- Reduce emissions from our works
- Using site waste management plans to minimise our waste to landfill and send to recycling plants instead
- Achieving sustainability requirements under the Considerate Constructors Scheme
We’ve made great improvements in the quality and efficiency of our processes through ISO 9001. This has resulted in us becoming more productive and competitive as well as ultimately improving customer satisfaction.
Health and safety is our first responsibility. Our health and safety record is impressive year after year and our accreditation to Safe Contractor demonstrates this. We strive to continually improve our understanding and approach to health and safety. We also require that our subcontractors share this approach.
Backed by the Health & Safety Executive, the Contractor Health and Safety Assessment Scheme is another measure of our ongoing approach to improvement of health and safety on our sites. As with Safe Contractor, this assessment requires that we demonstrate our ongoing competence in all relevant areas of heath and safety to our services.
This accreditation demonstrating competence over many aspects of our service enables us to carry out Public Sector work.
Health & Safety on our sites is our foremost priority
Health and Safety
We continually assess our performance & procedures and ensure continued training for our staff. Our procedures also require that all suppliers and subcontractors adhere to our health & safety requirements, including demonstrating ongoing training of their own staff.
All of our site and project managers are SMSTS trained and directors are IOSH trained and we require that all our operatives and manager carry CSCS cards. We have an impressive health & safety record for our sites, with incidents well below the industry average
Contrada Group uses The Health & Safety People for its health and safety site audits, procedures, advice and ongoing H&S policy. We have accreditation with both Safe Contractor and CHAS
