Alan Beard was the third-generation head at the helm of the construction firm that was started by his grandfather and continues to bear the family name.

After a career that spanned 70 years, he has decided to retire, leaving a legacy that includes the Bishop Edward King Chapel, Cuddesdon, Oxfordshire, and work for Eton, Marlborough and Radley colleges, as well as a wide variety of projects for the University of Oxford. He firmly believed in the programme for school-leavers and university graduates looking to start their careers in construction, and Beard is still invested in its trainee scheme.
