Herman Peter Thygesen Lind (c1890-1956) of Peter Lind and Co and Tileman and Co

1956 Obituary [1]

THE death occurred on December 1 of Mr. H. P. T. Lind, the chairman of the contracting firm which bears his name; he was sixty-six and was Danish by birth.

Herman Peter Thygesen Lind founded Peter Lind and Co. in 1915, in partnership with the late Mr. A. Ingerslev. He had previously specialised in reinforced concrete construction and the firm specialised in this class of work, in which it is, of course, still very active.

The works it has built over the past forty years are numerous and varied; pride of place, however, goes to the Waterloo Bridge over the Thames.

Mr. Lind was also chairman of the firm of Tileman and Co., Ltd., which specialises in the construction of reinforced concrete chimneys, and also cement works.

He also had chairmanships of various gravel companies and he was chairman of the North Staffordshire Gravels Association.

His social connections with various Danish organisations in this country were strong; he was a member of the "Civils" and the "Structurals," and served on the council of the Federation of Civil Engineering Contractors
