Our Projects




Rothstone is privately funded through a network of several high net worth individuals. Typically we take a 3 – 5 year view on a development project and have access to substantial funds for suitable projects via key partners Peveril Securities, who are a wholly owned subsidiary of the Bowmer and Kirkland and MarshallCDP.

Bowmer & Kirkland is very much a family company. Our values, ethos and culture are moulded by the fact that we are family-owned. We focus on our customers and colleagues and part of our vision is to ensure that we continue to re-invest our resources into the Group.

Founded in 1923, the Group now consists of 29 subsidiary companies or divisions, offering a wide range of specialisms from construction-related services to homeland security products. All our companies focus on building long-term effective partnerships.

B&K now has in excess of 1400 staff operating from our Head Office in Derbyshire, regional offices in Birmingham, Manchester, Motherwell, Newark, Reading and Sunderland and from offices in the USA.
