Marketing & Communications Manager

Darren Cash has been appointed as director in Toronto’s cost management team to strengthen the global business’ offering across Canada.

Building on the success in Toronto over recent years, Darren will provide additional leadership to our cost and commercial management service – from developing estimates that inform investment decisions, to benchmarking, value engineering and auditing costs through construction to ensure schemes are delivered to budget.  

In Canada, we have been providing construction consultancy for nearly 20 years, with offices in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Ottawa, as well as Toronto. 

Sectors include commercial and residential property, through to education, hi-tech, government, manufacturing, aviation and rail.

Darren joins our business from BTY Group where he was responsible for managing and leading its eastern Canada operations in cost management, P3 advisory and project monitoring across complex real estate and infrastructure projects. Prior to this, he was part of the corporate real estate team at Davis Langdon, An AECOM Company, where he worked on commercial fit-out projects throughout the Middle East.

Darren is the current chair of the RICS Ontario Chapter and a member of the RICS Canada Board.

Gerard McCabe, managing director in Canada said: “Darren’s appointment bolsters Turner & Townsend’s leadership experience in Canada and represents a key milestone in furthering our growth across the region.

“Over the last few years Canada has seen increased investment across real estate and infrastructure with a focus on commercial office, education, health and the government sector. We have been following these areas closely, and experienced strong growth as a result. 

“Bringing extensive experience and local market knowledge, Darren’s leadership will enable us to continue our recent growth trajectory and achieve our strategic goal to be the pre-eminent cost management firm in the region.”

Commenting on his appointment, Darren said: “As a business Turner & Townsend has seen tremendous success in the region over the last few years. I look forward to leading the cost management team and building on this growth going forward.”
