Durkan Group

Chairman William Durkan set up the construction company in 1963 and the business is now run by his son Daniel. It builds houses and flats for housing associations and local authorities, and has a subsidiary that builds private residential units and commercial property. The business also offers construction and refurbishment services to the education, healthcare and community sectors. Despite the general slump in the construction sector, sales increased by 32% to £179.2m in 2009 boosted by contracts in the social housing market.
