The architecture of industrial real estate

Architect Derek Downs joins host Chad Griffiths in this episode to explore the role of design and management in industrial properties. Downs is vice-president and director of architecture at Halff Associates, and his experience includes being involved in the design of over 50 million square feet of industrial property.

They'll be discussing the following:

  • the modern industrial design landscape;
  • designing and managing industrial developments;
  • key features from an architectural standpoint;
  • what to look for in industrial buildings.

The interview was conducted live, so comments and questions from viewers will appear in the chat window.

Downs joined Halff in 1995, has led Halff’s Private Sector Architectural practice for over 10 years and has designed and managed millions of square feet of industrial buildings during that time period.

He has teamed with some of the largest industrial developers in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

He is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Kansas State University College of Architecture and Design.
