About Us

Cumming Group is a leading independent property and construction consultancy with expertise across a broad range of sectors and disciplines.

Our bespoke services are delivered by a talented team of project managers and surveyors throughout the UK and across the EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) and US regions, where we enjoy long-standing relationships based on hard work, mutual respect, and a commitment to adding value at every step of a project’s development. We are attentive listeners who think strategically, manage decisively, and always act with our clients’ best interests at heart.

Deep Roots

Cumming was established in the US in 1996 by UK born Finlay Cumming. Delivering superior project management and cost consulting on some of the largest and most significant projects across the United States, the company steadily grew from a handful of team members during its early days to more than 1,400 today. Here in the UK, after merging with three of the country’s most highly regarded property and building consultancies, Cumming’s team are comprised of 150 professionals offering bespoke, principal-led services from offices in London, Manchester, Stoke-on-Trent, and Edinburgh. Now operating as one seamless organisation, Cumming delivers superior value and problem-solving on a wide range of large and complex schemes.

The Expansion of Cumming in the EMEA Region

From 1996, when Finlay Cumming first formed the organisation in the US, up until today, we have worked hard to continuously innovate and evolve. By hiring the most talented and hardest working professionals we could find, and then by merging with like-minded UK-based firms who placed a similar emphasis on client service and satisfaction, we further realised Finlay’s vision to become a leading global consultancy.


Formed in 2007, MHBC quickly developed a reputation as an independent building consultancy with a skilled and innovative team, backed by a highly collaborative company culture. No matter the type or size of the assignment, they have always prided themselves on contributing positively to the built environment and providing tremendous value to their clients. MHBC merged with Cumming in 2018 and operated under the name of MHBC Cumming from then until July 2021, when they joined with Prosurv and TowerEight to form Cumming Group, EMEA.


Prosurv was founded in 2004 with the goal of providing peerless service for all their clients. Over the next 17 years they would prove their commitment to this goal time and time again, providing project leadership throughout the construction cycle to ensure the timely and consistent delivery of high-quality, client-focused services. In 2019, after having become one of the UK’s leading project management and construction cost consultancies, Prosurv merged with Cumming. In 2021, they joined with MHBC Cumming and TowerEight to form Cumming Group, EMEA.


Formed in 2011 by four directors who had worked together for more than 20 years, TowerEight has since become an industry-leading construction consultancy that is perhaps best known for delivering creative and valuable property solutions for their clients. From day one, they built their business on the experience and knowledge of its team, and their collective commitment to professional excellence across each of their service lines. TowerEight merged with Cumming in 2020 and in 2021 joined MHBC Cumming and Prosurv to form Cumming Group, EMEA.
