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.

This project was completed by Edgar Taylor some time ago but with the impact of Covid-19 it has only now been possible to arrange some professional photos to showcase the finished building. The centre incorporates a wide range of facilities including a cafe, meeting rooms and a large function room as well as toilets & changing areas. A large V-Shaped roof to the central area creates a striking appearance to this fantastic new community asset.
We are pleased to announce that our project at The Story Museum in Oxford has been recognised at the recent Oxford Preservation Trust Awards 2021. This was a very challenging project with significant site constraints, but the final result is a credit to the hard work of everyone that made it possible. Our congratulations to the client and the teams at Purcell, Ramboll and Burke Hunter Adams.
