He was first appointed to the Board in 2021, and also serves on the Skills Committee of the Board.
Daniel says at a time of unprecedented infrastructure development, the CCF is more important than ever as a unified voice for the industry.
“The CCF was successful in 2021 in attracting government funding for skills and development and is now campaigning actively to attract people to the industry.
“The CCF’s Workforce Development Plan has a crucial role to play to make sure we have the right people on the ground to deliver a huge pipeline of projects across Tasmania. As part of this, the CCF will undertake a training gap analysis, and connect its members with the funding they need to train people.
“And through activities like the CCF’s Women in Civil pre-employment program, we will build diversity in our sector and demonstrate that women can have a rewarding career in our traditionally male-dominated industry.”
Daniel sees the CCF as a voice for all in the sector, large or small, and believes industry participants must share insights to ensure continuous improvement in project delivery across the state.
“There’s a huge infrastructure need in Tasmania, whether that’s roads, water, energy or other critical infrastructure and these projects have transformative potential for the state. My aim in joining the CCF Board is to help ensure the sector works together to deliver that potential,” he said.
Daniel brings to the CCF Board deep experience in delivery of high-profile and complex projects for major customers in Tasmania and interstate, including road safety upgrades, bridge replacement projects and flood mitigation works.
Graduating from the University of Tasmania with a Bachelor of Engineering with first class honours, Daniel worked initially for the Department of State Growth, before entering a scholarship with GHD and working in traffic and transport. He joined VEC Civil Engineering to work on the Brighton Bypass project in 2010. Daniel is the Manager Structures, Civil Tasmania.
