Logistics real estate developer Prologis has announced that Maurice Dalton (above), Head of Project Management in the UK, is to step down from his leadership role and will be retiring from the business at the end of May 2020. His successor, Simon Cox, currently First Vice President of Project Management and UK Sustainability Officer for the company, will take over the role with immediate effect. His predecessor will provide ongoing technical, commercial and procurement advice to the business.
Dalton’s career highlights include the development of the Cerberus curved roofing system in conjunction with CA Group. This system, now used on all Prologis buildings in the UK, reduces unused space within the roof zone above the haunch and therefore cuts the heating or cooling requirement and associated CO₂ emissions within the warehouse, as well as allowing for an increase in the usable floor space.
Speaking about the changes, Paul Weston, Regional Head for Prologis UK said: “I have been fortunate enough to work with Maurice for pretty much all of my career in property development and it has been an absolute pleasure. I would like to say a huge thank you to him for his contribution to the success of the UK business over the last two decades and wish him well for his retirement.”
