Mitchell Construction was once a leading British civil engineering business based in Peterborough.

History

The business was founded by F.G. (Tiny) Mitchell in London in 1933 as an offshoot of Mitchell Engineering, his engineering business. In 1940 the Company moved to Peterborough because of the destruction created in London by The Blitz.[1] David Morrell took over management of the business from Tiny Mitchell in 1954.[2] During the 1950s the business expanded rapidly exploiting hydro-electric power opportunities in Scotland.[3]

In 1962 Mitchell Construction acquired Kinnear Moodie, a leading tunneling business.[4]
