About Finnegan

Based in Sheffield since 1945, Finnegan is one of the UK's leading privately owned building contractors. Our wide-ranging expertise covers the industrial, office, retail, residential and education sectors, with contracts ranging from £1 million to £50 million.

We proudly deliver each project on time, on budget, to impeccable standards.

Our experience allows us to offer you invaluable advice at every stage. Working alongside consultants, we’re qualified to comment on design and buildability, ensuring a project is achievable in terms of cost, health and safety, and sustainability.

And because we also work as a developer, we have a deep understanding of the life of a project: we know exactly what you need from us, every step of the way.

A large number of our staff have been with us for many years, and some who started as apprentices now hold senior positions. Since clients tend to work with the same team throughout a project – usually including a Board Director – you benefit from an impressive depth of experience.

In our case studies you will see that we also work on refurbishments. Finnegan’s specialist skills in restoring historic buildings allow us to maintain our built heritage, working closely with architects who share this ethos.

Whether we’re working on old buildings or new, we’re dedicated to improving the built environment for communities across the UK.

We also offer a unique, fully integrated Design & Build service, which gives you a single point of responsibility for your project and the certainty of a fixed price.

From an initial brief we’ll provide outline proposals and cost advice, so you can move forward very quickly. The fusion of the design, approval and construction stages leads to savings in both time and money.

You can be involved in the construction process as much as you wish – we set up the contractual and functional arrangements to suit your requirements.

Although your building will be unique, we can show you a comparable property to demonstrate what we can achieve together, and to help conceptualise your scheme.

Finnegan develops properties throughout the UK, but in recent years our presence in the firm’s home town of Sheffield has greatly increased.

We create vibrant places to live, work and play. Partnering with local authorities and other regeneration agencies, we’ve developed high-quality business and leisure sites in areas hard hit by the loss of traditional industries.

As builder and developer on these projects, we’re able to control quality, maximise productivity and manage costs for the benefit of all parties.

And in generating our own opportunities and taking on joint ventures, we’ve developed first-class skills in risk management and an excellent record in attracting institutional funding.

Our goal is to create quality modern developments that are commercially successful, while meeting our high social and environmental standards. In this way we aim to make a long-lasting positive contribution to local communities.
