At Schumann Consult, two words define the culture, ethos, attitude to service delivery and commitment to our Architectural colleagues…. ‘Supporting Designers‘. This is the umbrella phrase we use for our services, Specification Consulting and Design Management. Both services have been developed, tailored and used on many high profile projects around the world with some of the worlds most prestigious architectural firms.
We are an independent business with a passion for the implementation of quality design in the built environment, through the production of appropriate specifications and design management practices allowing architects to focus on design.
We aim to reduce designers' risk on projects through sound strategies, systems, communications and the flow of information between client, consultants, contractors and manufacturers such that projects are delivered within expectations thus maximising asset value. Our expertise has been built up over 27 years, helping deliver projects around the world.
We do not design, but we understand the challenges that architects and designers face. Our commitment to supporting designers is based on our core strengths and passion for delivering quality design in the real world, often operating behind the scenes providing services that protect the best interests of the architect, client and the project.
Our business is owned by Nick and Mark Schumann based on family values, which we believe gives our business the warmth and culture that makes clients and staff want to work with us. We are proud and excited to be a father-son team, which to us is nothing new, having worked together for over 10 years during our time at Davis Langdon. We understand each other very well, have complementary skills, share the same vision and now feel free to operate as independent consultants in a modern way.
Our culture will focus on treating staff, clients and colleagues as family; retaining the trust, confidence and belief that quality will always shine through and will be at the centre of everything we do.
