About Us

Established in 2006, PlanB Consultancy includes a team of more than 60 dedicated professionals — including quantity surveyors, estimators, engineers, and project managers — who passionately advocate on our client’s behalf. Providing reliable data, insights, and advice, our team works to bring projects in on budget, on schedule, and within our clients’ anticipated scope.

In mid-2020, PlanB merged with Cumming, an international project and cost management company with more than 900 team members throughout the U.S. and UK. Established in 1996, Cumming has emerged as one of the industry’s preeminent consulting firms offering independent advice and advocacy to building owners, designers, and developers at any stage of development, from planning through close-out. The company offers expertise across a broad range of sectors, including healthcare, education, hospitality, office and data centers, culture and arts, and retail, among many others.

Like Cumming, PlanB has built its practice through the formulation of strong client relationships based on exceptional client service, and by attracting talented self-starters who enjoy operating in an environment that empowers them to thrive. Also, like Cumming, we are proud of our ability to continuously improve and innovate as we help our clients achieve their development objectives.

The Origins of PlanB

We are often asked how we came up with the name PlanB. It’s pretty simple. Construction projects tend to be complex. A typical project can include more than a dozen designers, engineers, and specialty consultants, and even more contractors and sub-contractors. Without strong leadership from individuals who truly understand all aspects of the process, problems can, and generally do, arise. Plan A is to hope and pray that everything goes smoothly; PlanB is the path most clients end up following, ergo our name.

Commitment to our Community & Environment

PlanB is committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work, and to minimizing impacts to the environment. Being compassionate citizens with a strong moral compass is what guides our success as a business, and what drives our unwavering commitment to doing what’s right for our clients and community.
