About Contour Construction
Our Success Secret…

Based at Heathrow, we are a multi-faceted construction business
offering an end-to-end service across a range of disciplines

We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the Airport environment and know better than most the compliance requirements and operational constraints that need to be considered when delivering construction projects at Heathrow.

Contour Construction wants to be seen as a reactive, flexible and innovative contractor with a real determination to deliver for our clients. Our aim, therefore, is to offer you a truly bespoke and personal service that gives you the “upper-hand” when it comes to winning business on Airport.

We know how important great communications are so we are always looking to go the ‘extra mile’ to ensure you are kept abreast of delivery. We also believe strongly in the importance of building long-term relationships built on mutual trust and a shared vision that has the end-user very much at the heart of everything we do. As a result of this approach we enjoy an exceptionally high level of repeat business which we believe illustrates how well our delivery teams integrate with our customers both on and off site. It’s all part of the “Contour Service“.
