San Diego-based Cumming Corp., a project management and cost consulting firm, has opened an office in Durham, N.C. and hired Frank Pinto to serve as vice president of project management in the new office.
Pinto and the North Carolina team will be responsible for building out the firm’s regional footprint and servicing the company’s Southeast and Mid-Atlantic clients.
Pinto will drive Cumming’s North Carolina efforts in all aspects of program and project management from design phase through close-out.
“As the construction industry in the greater Raleigh-Durham area continues to rebound, Cumming’s new office and experienced leadership will allow us to provide our local clients unmatched on-the-ground service,” said Peter Heald, president at Cumming.
The firm has already completed projects with the University of North Carolina REX, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Duke University, Forest History Society, Cabarrus County Schools, Wake Technical Community College and Durham Public Schools.
Prior to joining Cumming, Pinto was a director of project development services for Forrester Construction Co. in Washington, D.C.
