Brothers Dermot and David McDermott founded Kilnbridge Group in 1992 to focus on a niche in the construction industry. They specialised in putting together ‘builders’ work packages,’ whereby one company comes in to finish off the small jobs a large contractor does not want to do. Rather than use expensive subcontractors, the company developed four divisions – concrete cutting, demolition, waste management and fire protection – to cover all the bases. Although originally set up to undertake group contracts, the divisions have been so successful they now operate independently on the open market. Kilnbridge Group now consists of two companies: Kilnbridge Construction, which does general building, and McDermott Bros Contractors, which specialises in reinforced concrete. Together, they have exploited the recent building boom to drive up sales 99% a year, from £1.9m in 1996 to £14.7m in 1999.
