SEATTLE  – DEC. 19, 2019 – Since opening its first Pacific Northwest office in Seattle less than five years ago, Cumming, an international construction consultancy, continues to find success in the market with its owner-first approach, seeing double digit regional growth.

Cumming is currently providing project management and cost management services for the University of Washington, Amazon, PeaceHealth, Kaiser Permanente, and Facebook, as well as other Pacific Northwest clients in commercial office, healthcare and education. Cumming has also expanded its project monitoring services in the region with First Light Seattle, a 48-story luxury residential building.

“Our team of project and cost management experts pride themselves on being a client’s biggest advocate,” said Bill Foulkes, Vice President at Cumming. “It’s that client-focused mindset and dedication to finding creative solutions for unique construction challenges that keeps our team growing and our clients coming back.”

The continued growth has led to several key leadership changes for the expanding construction consultancy in Seattle. Associate Director Aled Jenkins and Senior Cost Manager Josiah Thompson relocated from Cumming’s Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. offices, and Michelle Kelly joined the firm as director of business development for the Pacific Northwest.  The firm has also expanded its project management team by adding 15 project managers to the Seattle office, including Ali Khatibi, Tuschar Patel, and Phil Killham as senior project managers. Recent promotions include Greg Williams to senior director, Rob Jones to director, Tommy Kelly and Tony Fratianne to senior project manager, and Karim Kamel to senior cost manager.

Experts in construction project and cost management services, Cumming has assembled a diverse portfolio that includes an array of assignments in the healthcare, education, commercial, hospitality, retail, entertainment, and high-end residential sectors totaling more than $300 billion in project value.
