Making it official this past week, Cumming, a leading project management and cost consultancy, just announced that Stoke-on-Trent-based Prosurv Consult, Ltd. (Prosurv) has merged with the international firm. The merger will provide Prosurv with additional global resources and expertise, enabling the U.K. professional services company to continue to provide unmatched construction advisory services to its current client base.

Prosurv is one of the U.K.’s most respected project management and construction cost consultants. The multi-award-winning company provides project leadership for clients throughout the entire construction lifecycle to ensure that all parties are motivated to deliver quality and client-focused services for complex projects. The construction consultancy is leading some of the most high-profile education, residential, retail, mixed-use, renewable, hospitality, infrastructure, and brownfield land regeneration projects currently under development in the U.K.

“Partnering with Cumming allows Prosurv to provide additional advisory services and new specialised expertise to our current clients, while at the same time, providing our team members with opportunities to develop their careers as we look to expand our geographic and valued end-market reach,” stated Paul Dunning, Managing Director of Prosurv. “We had been looking for a true long-term partner with an outstanding reputation, an owner-driven culture, and international resources that could help take Prosurv to the next level.  We have found this with Cumming.”

Prosurv will continue to operate under the day-to-day leadership of its founders Paul Dunning, Daniel Smith, Chris Price, and Richard Berry.

“Cumming’s investment in Prosurv demonstrates our continued confidence in the U.K. market, and our strong belief in the long-term fundamentals of its construction and real estate sector,” said Derek Hutchison, Executive Vice President at Cumming. “Following the successful integration of London-based MHBC Cumming, we are excited to merge with the Prosurv team to help broaden our collective capabilities across the United Kingdom.”

Focused on supporting it’s growing U.K. client base, in late 2018, Cumming was joined by Mellersh & Harding Building Consultancy LLP (MHBC), a longstanding U.K. building surveying group, adding to the international firm’s commitment to the region.

By joining forces, Cumming’s worldwide team increases to approximately 815 professionals across 29 U.S. offices, as well as permanent teams in Beijing, London, Edinburgh, and the new Prosurv team in Stoke-on-Trent.
