About Lindum Group Ltd

Lindum are a practical and innovative construction company, covering new-builds and refurbishment and maintenance, with expertise in the education, medical, food, retail and housing sectors.

Lindum believe in taking care of their staff so they can look after their clients with much more care and attention.

Civil engineer John F Chambers started Lindum Construction in 1956 with a secretary, three tradesmen and a dog. The emphasis was on practical skills and good relationships with clients.

The business expanded from civil engineering to large construction projects. Today, Lindum directly employs more than 600 people, has a turnover upwards of £100m and operates from offices in Lincoln, Peterborough and York.

Chaired by the founder's youngest son, David, the Lindum now comprises 12 trading divisions. The firm still maintains a transparent approach to client relations, an old-fashioned ethos of doing the right thing by its staff and an impressive gnome collection.
