Constructing buildings, partnerships and relationships with integrity since 1879


An Atmosphere of Teamwork

At H.P. Cummings, team continuity means that we all “buy in” on a project; this minimizes confusion and enhances our team performance. Team continuity builds a base for the next project where team members no longer need an introduction to one another, and lessons learned throughout the project ensure superior execution.

We believe in continuity as our primary approach to any project. To us, this process is invaluable. We encourage all key personnel to be involved in the project from preconstruction to warranty. A constant team ensures no losses in knowledge or understanding of a project, including issues, which creates a sense of ownership for potential problems during the bidding and buy-out process.

Ownership from all creates trust, which allows for a smooth construction process. We focus on and represent everyone’s best interests in completing a successful project, starting with our leadership team.
