Synopsis
Towards the end of World War II a Public Works Order was served on a modest-sized building firm called W & L Simons to service airfields in Lincolnshire. The company designated two of its young surveyors to supervise the work from a small office in the city of Lincoln. This is the story of how from this single contract grew a major company, with ten subsidiaries, operating in construction, design-and-build, interior design and property development. Its projects range from innovative modern structures to expert, sensitive conversion and maintenance work on historic buildings. Its success is founded on an outstanding reputation for craftsmanship, top quality workmanship, and integrity. The book is also about the individual most responsible for this success, Peter Hodgkinson - one of the young surveyors who set up the office in Lincoln in 1944. It recounts how the business created by Hodgkinson and a team of colleagues survived hard times and flourished to become the respected concern it is today.
