Frame Projects is a design focused, project management consultancy. We are leading experts in design review -providing independent expert advice to clients, design teams and planning authorities on development proposals. 

We manage multi-disciplinary design review panels on behalf of nine London planning authorities: Barking and Dagenham; Camden; Ealing; Haringey; Havering; Kensington and Chelsea; Redbridge; London Legacy Development Corporation; and Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation.


Outside of London we manage design review panels for: Epping Forest; Watford; Folkestone & Hythe; Somerset West & Taunton; and three proposed Garden Towns in Essex, Kent and Somerset. 


Frame Projects is also Secretariat to the HS2 Independent Design Panel, which has been set up at the request of the Department for Transport to help ensure that, through great design, HS2 delivers real economic, social and environmental benefits for the whole country.

Building on our experience of design review, Frame Projects is helping to pioneer community review - allowing people to share local expertise with developers and planning authorities. We manage community review groups for the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation; Dacorum Borough Council; the Old Kent Road Opportunity Area (working with Southwark Council); the Isle of Dogs and South Poplar Opportunity Area (working with Tower Hamlets Council); Ealing Council; and Redbridge's council house building programme. 

The starting point for all our panels is collaborative working. We aim to understand the particular qualities and challenges of each place or project so that we can bring together panel members with the most relevant expertise for achieving high quality design.
