Allan Cumming established
the practice in September 1990 following 20 years in the industry,
mostly in contracting. Having experienced the difficulties associated
with installing systems designed by other consultants, it was felt
that improvements could be made by initiating a new standard for
design. Allan Cumming is not only a Low Carbon Consultant, but also a Certifier of Design. This can cut months off the time required to go through Building Control, as well as offering significant savings.
Through our location at the Centre of Edinburgh and by utilizing the latest software, we are well positioned to serve the needs of our clients quickly and efficiently.
The core practice philosophy however, remains the strongly held belief that time spent at the design stage in preparing clear and concise design information and detailed tender and construction drawings, produces a trouble free on -site installation ensuring programme compliance and effective cost control.
A desire to place mechanical and electrical engineering services at the forefront of building services design, and to produce sustainable and cost effective services solutions is a major focus for our engineering design staff.
Our designs include :
Low Energy Solutions, Sustainable Resources, BREEAM Methodology, and now :
Domestic and Residential Sprinkler Design and Certification to the new Scottish Building Regulation requirements
