About Us

Edgar Taylor is a leading regional contractor based in Buckinghamshire.

We believe that the construction of award-winning design is dependent on collaboration between client, architect, contractors and suppliers. Alongside bricks and mortar, we build valued partnerships that result in the most effective methods, materials, supply chain and site management.

We confidently bring the best construction team to every project, because we actively nurture and develop talents and invest in continuous staff development. No matter what the scale or nature of the build, we champion excellence in the built environment.

As a trusted construction partner, our projects encompass purpose-built facilities and the development of heritage sites. With a clear understanding of the design aspirations and purpose of the building, we identify and address both opportunities and risks to realise the vision.

Our expertise and build quality have earned Edgar Taylor repeat custom and a reputation as the regional contractor of choice for all stakeholders.
