Braidwater designs and builds high-quality homes across Northern Ireland, with a strong focus on design and building efficiency.
The business is run by founder and Executive Chairman Patrick McGinnis and his son, Managing Director Joe McGinnis. BGF's capital is being used to support the development of residential properties across its sites.

We’re pleased to be its first investment in Northern Ireland, and we would suggest that given the large number of family-owned SMEs in Northern Ireland that other companies like ours should look to take advantage of opportunities such as this to create growth in this region.Joe McGinnis, managing director
