Peter Lind & Company
|Headquarters||Spalding, Lincolnshire, England|
Peter Lind & Company is the name of a private building contractor with bases in Central London & Spalding in Lincolnshire.
The Original company was founded in 1915 by Herman Peter Thygesen Lind (b. 14.9.1890 d. 1.12.1956) a Danish engineer. In 1980 the company, subsequent to a failed project in the Mole Valley and a docks lock-out in Merseyside was forced to call in the famous firm of receivers W.H. Cork Gully & Company who sold off the assets. A group of former employees purchased certain rights and recommenced construction operations which carry on today.
Major construction projects undertaken by the company have included Waterloo Bridge in London (completed in 1945) and the BT Tower in London which was completed in 1964 by Peter Lind's son in law Thomas Jaeger.
The company still has management members from the pre 1980 era and continues to carry out construction operations in London and throughout the U.K. The London division has a Private Clients arm aimed at the bespoke fit out market, this is featured in the Channel 5 TV series "Superior Interiors".
