Tim Downes

Development Director, British Land

Tim has over 20 years experience in commercial real estate development, 9 of them with British Land where he holds the position of Development Director and is responsible for bringing forward office, life-science, residential and logistics projects across British Land’s Paddington and Regents Place campuses.  Prior to that he worked for Middle East based Viridis Real Estate and the US developer, Hines.

 

Tim’s most recently delivered project, a 500,000 ft office refurbishment, designed by Arup, built by Lend Lease and pre-let to Meta pushed the boundaries of what is possible when re-using commercial buildings.  The BREEAM Outstanding development added over 50% net area to the original structure while keeping embodied carbon to 450 kg/m2.  With sustainability at the heart of the design brief, the development delivered over 70 marginal gains which maximised operational energy efficiency and pioneered a circular economy approach to re-using the original façade.

 

Tim believes that the developer has a responsibility to leverage their client-side position to drive innovation through design teams, contractors and the project supply chain – only by encouraging a collegiate approach between all parties will we maximise the outcomes for sustainability.
