About Us

Downing operates across three successful divisions: mixed use development, property management and construction.  This unique approach arms us with the breadth of experience and skill to maximise value, quality and use of space where others would fall short. Downing has developed and managed bespoke accommodation for a range of blue chip companies, central government departments and leading universities and as a development partner to the public sector.

Over the last 20 years of developing and investing in student accommodation, I have seen the market blossom and mature into an asset class in its own right.  Throughout this period, all of my developments have achieved double digit returns and I feel more confident than ever that we can build on our vast experience to achieve even greater things in this sector”

The move to The Capital was a huge decision for us at UKBA and therefore needed a construction company we could trust – not just with our brief on fit-out but with the security implications involved.  The George Downing Construction team were easy to work with – they understood our requirements from the start, delivered on time and within our budget and made the whole process a seamless and successful one.

“Well executed and deftly placed, the Broadcasting Place project positions itself as a strong contrast and yet still feels complementary to its context”
