BETHESDA, MD. – (July 9, 2013) – Cumming, an international project management and cost consulting firm, announced today it will be expanding its East Coast presence and launching its Culture Practice to accommodate a company-wide strategic growth plan. Continuing to be the fastest growing office companywide, Cumming’s Washington D.C.-area team is set to expand its physical footprint and simultaneously launch its new specialized Culture Practice, which will focus on serving leading museums, galleries, performing arts centers, and memorials. The new 2,500-square-foot office at 7200 Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda, MD will allow the project management and cost consulting firm to continue to support its growing client base as well as tap into the region’s well-known cultural tourist attractions.

“As the construction industry continues to steadily rebound, it is the ideal time to grow our regional presence and introduce a new sector to our already broad portfolio,” said Peter Heald, President at Cumming. “In just over a year, Cumming’s Washington D.C. office has exceeded our corporate goals by focusing on the delivery of exceptional services, allowing our East Coast presence to continue to expand.”

Cumming’s Washington D.C.-based team specializes in program, project and cost management. They possess extensive experience on the East Coast, as well as across the U.S. and abroad. Working alongside architects and directly for building owners, assignments have been completed for Hilton Worldwide, Marriott, Starwood Capital, Host Hotels & Resorts, U.S. Department of Energy, Kaiser Permanente, University of Virginia, National Institutes of Health, Washington College, Boston University, Virginia Tech, Bucknell University and the National Institute of Building Sciences, among many others.

“Hilton has long valued its relationship with Cumming Corporation highlighted by a history of successful projects and engagements,” said Allen Parry, Senior Director, Project Management at Hilton. “Cumming’s proximity to our McLean, VA headquarters can only enhance our continued partnership. We congratulate Cumming on their continued growth.”

While the firm has been involved with more than 100 culture sector projects since 1996, representing approximately $1 billion in development value, Cumming is officially launching a specialized practice to focus on the sector’s specific needs.
