Frame Projects is a London based, 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 seven London planning authorities: Barking and Dagenham; Camden; Haringey; Havering; Redbridge; London Legacy Development Corporation; and Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation.
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.
We are also working to support high quality design for two proposed garden towns. In Kent, Folkestone & Hythe District Council appointed us to set up and manage a Place Panel for Otterpool Park Garden Town. In Essex, we have established a Quality Review Panel for Harlow and Gilston Garden Town, on behalf of Harlow Council, Epping Forest and East Herts District Councils. We also manage a separate quality review panel for Epping Forest District Council.
As an extension of this work, we manage a Community Review Group for the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation. This has a complementary relationship with the Place Review Group - which provides training and facilitation to community members. We have also recently set up a Community Review Panel for Dacorum Borough Council in Hertfordshire.
The starting point for all panels is multi-disciplinary and 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.
