Designing out Waste

Activity: External talk or presentationInvited talk


Baker-Brown was invited to present a 2 hour workshop focussing on designing our waste in the construction sector for senior employees of Redevco which is an international company describing itself as " a one-stop-shop for real estate management services. Baker-Brown was invited to speak to this multi-national company because of his expertise in the practice of architecture adhering to circular economy principles, as well as his extensive knowledge of projects delivered using these principles. In addition Baker-Brown had interviewed Redevco's Head of Sustainability Martijn Horsman for the second edition of his 'Re-Use atlas', when he had a similar role for Amsterdam's SchiphoL Airport.

Baker-Brown accepted the invitation to engage with senior employees of this company because there appeared to be a high level of interest in reducing the amount of resources consumed in the management of the huge property portfolio this company maintains across UK and Europe.

For the record - Redevco has almost 25 years of experience, in-house research, and highly skilled professionals in local markets. They offer investors a broad spectrum of real estate opportunities in Europe’s top performing cities. In April 2022, Redevco acquired a majority stake in redos, the Hamburg-based large-scale retail and urban logistics property investment specialist, which brings the total Assets under Management around €9.7 billion. We manage 356 assets in 12 countries across various portfolios for multiple investor clients. These properties comprise almost 4 million m2. of space, represent more than 3,500 tenancies.
