Founded in 1923 by Alfred Bowmer, a joiner, and Robert Kirkland, a bricklayer, this Derbyshire-based construction group is overseen by chairman Jack Kirkland, 39, from the fourth generation of the Kirkland family, which wholly owns the firm. The company has just finished its largest project — the £123m Waterside campus for the University of Northampton — and in October started work on a £160m designer shopping outlet in Cannock, Staffordshire.
