About iLiv Constructions

Peter Downham, along with his wife Vanessa, founded Downham Developments in 2002. With many years of experience in the construction industry; the natural progression was to operate a growing company producing quality ‘one-of-a-kind’ homes.

Starting from a small home-based office, Downham Developments quickly gained momentum, working largely from client and industry associate referrals. Peter’s objective was to create a Company building quality finished homes whilst working toward a large scale business that kept its family orientated core. Throughout these years Peter has maintained an exceptional Builder-Client relationship.

In 2009, Peter Downham and Craig Treasure formed iLiv Homes as part of the iLiv Group, and Downham Developments became part of the iLiv team. Completed construction projects include luxury homes in Broadbeach Waters, River Links Estate & Sanctuary Cove; project built homes in Upper Coomera and Pacific Pines, Display Homes, townhouse complexes and a 2,600m2 commercial building.

With the focus on the iLiv future, Downham Developments Pty Ltd registered iLiv Constructions as their new trading name in 2011.
