keith
contractor, construction company
Explanation:
Very typical construction jargon. In Spanish, "contrata" means "contractor" or "the company/person that performs a construction contract. The contract can be public or private". "Contrata" is the same as "contratista". You may also hear "subcontrata" or "subcontratista"; a company/person hired to perform a part of the contract (subcontract).

Hope this helps

Explanation:
You don't say what kind of "contrata" it is and that could make a difference. If what you want is just the translation for this word, as is, then: "contract". More if you give us more detail. Cheers.. :)
