In 2017, this Derbyshire-based construction firm boosted profits 8% to £62.6m due to a strong construction market. Overseen by group chairman John Kirkland, 80, the firm won a place on the government’s £8bn framework for the construction of new schools last November. In March, it started work on a new £21m transport hub in South Tyneside, which forms part of a £100m regeneration scheme.
