Our History

London and Nationwide

Safety In Action

Kilnbridge is a privately owned company founded in 1992 as a general building and civil engineering contractor by David and Dermot McDermott.

Initially undertaking builders work packages on the Canary Wharf development, the business earned a reputation for being able to deliver complex work packages to a very high standard and achieving difficult programme dates. The specialist trade divisions of concrete cutting, environmental and fire protection evolved during this period to provide the flexibility required to meet the needs of our clients.

In 2002, Kilnbridge established its head office and main plant depot at Cody Road Business Park, East London, where it is still based today.

Since its formation the company has evolved and developed into a construction and civil engineering business providing engineered solutions to a wide range of industry sectors.

Today, Kilnbridge offers its clients a turnkey specialist structures service drawing on the company’s knowledge, expertise and full range of specialist skills.

Kilnbridge is a thriving £50m turnover business with a reputation as one of the industry’s leading specialist contractors.
