Company Overview

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.

Proud of our commercial portfolio, our property management team ensures we have the strongest possible relationship with our tenants and that all of our properties are maintained and managed to the highest standards.

George Downing Construction (GDC) is the group’s in-house construction arm, handling the main contracting role of all our construction requirements and employing a highly skilled team of property professionals.  This expertise minimises risk and ensures projects are delivered on time and in budget.

This holistic approach is the key to our sustainability.  By refusing to be one-dimensional we maintain a thriving investment portfolio and are continuing to grow as a major force in the property industry throughout the UK.

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”
