Fast Track 100

Father-and-son team Patrick, 74, and Joe McGinnis, 36, lead this Co Derry housebuilding business, which has developments across Northern Ireland. Founded in 2011 as Lynwood Eco Homes, it changed its name to Braidwater in 2015. In the same year, it secured its first funding from the growth capital investor BGF. Since then it has received two further investments from BGF, with the latter, in January, being used to merge with sister company BW Homes & Construction. Sales climbed to £34.9m in the year to March. In June, it announced plans to build a development in west Belfast, which would create 650 homes, including social and affordable housing.
