Daniel Cadman FRICS: “Our Manchester” project

Daniel Cadman is a member of the steering group for the "Our Manchester" project, which aims to make Manchester a world class city by 2025.

In recent years Manchester's economy and population has soared, which has inspired a physical transformation in the city and Daniel has been at the heart of a series of key projects that have helped with this change.

Manchester's Grade II* listed Central Library and Town Hall Extension were given a new lease of life with a £100m refurbishment. Daniel's consultancy, Faithful+Gould, is a driving force in the current £330m refurbishment and restoration of Waterhouse' Grade I Listed Manchester Town Hall, the 'Our Town Hall' project.

While the work at the Central Library was underway, St. Peter's Square was transformed from a dark and dreary back street and tram stop, into an open, fresh European style plaza. As part of this transformation, another Grade II* listed structure was relocated, the Sir Edwin Lutyens Cenotaph memorial was moved for the Centenary of the beginning of the WWI, to its new location by the town hall.

Having graduated from the University of Salford with a first class degree in Quantity Surveying, Daniel went on to obtain a PhD in construction procurement and a Master's degree in education. One of the first projects that Daniel was involved in was the clean-up of the old Gaythorn Gasworks site; this multi-million-pound remediation project has paved the way for the regeneration of this area of the city into a new and vibrant cultural hub.

Daniel played an important role in the redevelopment of Manchester Central, the former railway station. The Grade II* listed exhibition centre was substantially refurbished to become the City's primary conference venue, regularly hosting the major political party conferences.

Daniel began his surveying career in July 2000 at Ballast Wiltshire, but now works at Faithful+Gould as a Regional Director.

Daniel has been awarded an RICS Fellowship in recognition of his contribution to Quantity Surveying.
