Who We Are Cumming is a leading program, project and cost management firm. Since its inception, Cumming has grown consistently and substantially. Today, we have more than 250 employees and have completed projects around the world. Our Core Services Include: • Program & Project Management • Cost Management & Estimating • Dispute Resolution & Avoidance In providing these services, Cumming prides itself on delivering extraordinary and lasting results – the kind of tangible, sustainable results that many companies dismiss as impractical or even impossible. We are different than most management firms, and the clients we work with think so, too. Why? Because we realize that overall project success is attained not only through focus on the end result, but also through day-to-day discipline, cooperative ingenuity, and attention to detail. This is how money is saved, how schedules are met and how our clients’ goals are achieved. This is what our reputation is based on. Throughout our history, Cumming has remained focused on one goal: to assist our clients in managing the critical issues of time, quality, and cost from conception through close-out. Our primary objective has always been to save our clients time and money on every project, and to deliver the highest quality outcome that meets or exceeds their expectations. To do this, we assist our clients from planning through close-out, working with them, as one team, to ensure success in all phases of development.

For the past seven years, Cumming has continuously ranked within in the top 50 on Engineering News-Record’s listing of the Top 100 CM-for-Fee Firms in the country. This year, Cumming moved up one position and is now ranked #36.

Cumming and its affiliates are proud members and active supporters of these professional organizations.

Culture & Arts Since 1996, Cumming has been involved with more than 100 culture sector projects – including museums and galleries, performing arts centers, and memorials, among others – representing approximately $1 billion in development value. Through this work, we have gained tremendous respect for the complexities of these unique and highly customized building types, as well as for the expertise required to effectively manage the details of cost and construction. Whether assisting with the preservation of a historic theater, participating in the development of a ground-up museum, or helping to modernize a cultural arts center, we take great care to understand the vision of the owner and designer, and work together with all project stakeholders to ensure the project’s vision is preserved through all stages of design.

requirements, and of the priorities held by the project’s many stakeholders. This in-depth knowledge enables us to provide early and accurate project budgets, produce consistently reliable estimates, and present options and alternatives based on shifting revenue projections and evolving scope. Most importantly, we are able to effectively serve as trusted advisors to the entire project team. Many of the projects defined under the Culture sector become architectural icons upon completion. They are visited by thousands of people each year and scrutinized by many more. It is our job to help ensure that the legacy of each building aligns with the original vision, and is in no way impacted by cost or schedule overruns, or the countless other design and construction issues that can arise along the way.

Cumming emphasizes value in each of the services we offer. The value we bring to the Culture sector is rooted in our understanding of each building’s specialized use and

Our Core Services Program & Project Management Project management is about leadership. To Cumming, this means more than just administering a project – it means actively motivating and managing teams to generate results for our clients. The earlier a client engages us as their project manager, the more value we can offer. Cumming develops a sound management strategy at the outset. We explore and submit viable alternatives for project delivery, assist you in understanding your options, and propose the most efficient methods for implementing your plan. Each project or program is executed with superb precision and a keen eye toward budget, quality, and schedule.

Cost Management & Estimating Clients need to know the total cost of their project as early as possible in the development process. As the project progresses, you want to make sure your project is developing within budget, and that you are getting the best value for your investment. Cumming’s cost management group – one of the largest provider of cost estimating and management services in the United States – fills this need. As your trusted cost advisor employing the latest in aggressive time and cost

management methods, we ensure that any decisions you make are made with a complete understanding of the impact those decisions will have on both the short-term and long-term cost of the project. Additionally, Cumming provides fiscal discipline and problem-solving support through all phases of your project to ensure delivery within budget.

Dispute Resolution & Avoidance Unfortunately, disputes can and do arise during construction. Some can be neutralized if caught early, while others are more complex and require an extended commitment of problem-solving resources. In any case, our team of claims analysts, schedulers, and litigation specialists provide the careful analysis and expert guidance needed to handle disputes quickly, quietly, and with as little impact on the project as possible. Having been in the business for many years, our staff – most of whom have also been owners, designers, or builders in key construction sectors – know what to look for and how to achieve positive results on our clients’ behalf. If litigation becomes necessary, our seasoned testifiers are available to serve as your expert witness.

Program & Project Management The delivery of each project on budget, on schedule, and on quality is our primary goal for every client. Cumming’s core philosophy is “Manage each project like we own it.” This means much more than administering a project by attending meetings and taking notes. Our project managers proactively lead, challenge, and motivate teams to generate superb results that save money and time, mitigate risk, and achieve our clients’ delivery goals. Our core program and project management tenets include: Leadership — Cumming knows that for a project team to be successful, it must be inspired, unified, and led with confidence and knowledge. To do all of this takes a strong and thoughtful leader.

Cumming right-sizes project staffing, holds the entire project team accountable, and supplements their efforts only where needed to provide our clients with seamless project delivery.

Controls and Reporting — At Cumming, we tailor our extensive controls to mesh flawlessly with the controls of our clients, and to produce complete and transparent reporting, with full disclosure of all risks and opportunities. We do not impose the use of a single management system platform; instead, we use a variety of management systems and are always flexible.
