Division Overview

CapEX Cumming is based in Nashville and serves a diverse client base throughout the southern and central United States, providing owner representation, scheduling, and estimating — along with other related services — for projects in nearly every sector. We have worked successfully with a wide range of developers, REITs, public/private partnerships, government entities, and private owners, all of whom value our customized, all-in-one consulting services, and our ability to deliver results that speak directly to the needs of their organization and project, no matter the sector or project type.


CapEX was founded by President Joe Saatkamp in 2014. Since then, under Joe’s guidance and leadership, and behind the expertise and passion of its team members, the company has grown to become a go-to third-party firm for clients throughout the region, with significant assignments in Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas. In 2019, impressed by the company’s accomplishments, Cumming reached out to Joe to explore the idea of working together. After learning more about the strong similarities between the two firms — we share the same cultural principles, business practices, and service lines — they agreed to merge. Today, CapEX Cumming is a division of Cumming focused on the South and Central regions of the United States, with full access to the company’s vast international resources, which include more than 950 project and construction managers, cost professionals, schedulers, energy experts, and more.
