Top Track 250

Brothers and joint managing directors Patrick, 64, and Cormac Byrne, 68, started this London-based builder in 1974. It now specialises in developments combining residential, retail, industrial and commercial projects. Sales fell 30% to £257.9m in 2018, which the company attributes to Brexit uncertainty and reluctance within the market to commit significant capital to new schemes. Despite this, it completed a number of significant projects during the year, which lifted profits 26% to £25.8m.
