Cost Management + estimating consultants

Simply stated, our goal is to work on your behalf to minimize risk and maximize the value of your project. We achieve this through a unique, proactive approach to cost management. This disciplined approach, which is designed to add significant value to your bottom line, is reflected in the following principles:

We have a proven track record of saving our clients time and money, while preserving project quality through our proactive approach to cost management. We plan, control, and manage project costs from conception through successful completion.

Our comprehensive budget estimates are based on well-researched cost data and contain a level of detail more extensive than the industry standard. This ensures a realistic and accurate basis for the project and, when combined with our comprehensive cost control services, prevents budget overruns.

As an integral part of the design process, our continuous and disciplined management of project costs results in timely, well-informed design and business decisions. This approach leads to the early identification of potential cost issues, which in turn reduces the delays and expenses associated with unnecessary redesign.

You will benefit from our creative value management techniques. Our efforts help to assure program integrity, preserve design intent, and eliminate unnecessary project costs.

When it comes to managing project costs, nobody likes surprises. Unlike others, we don’t wait for the market to change. We accurately forecast market trends and advise our clients accordingly. Our continual analysis of productivity, material, labor, and micro- and macro-level market conditions ensure that our budgets and estimates are comprehensive and accurate.

Cumming is at the forefront of the BIM revolution. We integrate with the 5D environment, creating cost models in collaboration with your entire project team to maximize value and minimize risk. Our team approach at the outset of design ensures an accurate basis for both cost and schedule, while providing a value-added review of constructability issues.
