Small Projects Panel
Type: Framework procurement
Peabody had a number of small development sites which its larger architects could not find the time to resource. Claire spearheaded the Small Projects Panel for Peabody. This involved procuring a panel of six architects via open competition. No restrictions were set on who could apply in terms of turnover: the only requirement was that the firm should have completed one building. Over 300 entries were received to the competition in 2014 and 20 firms were shortlisted, with six small firms making it to the panel. All six firms were immediately given at least one site to work on: these schemes are now in the process of being designed and built.
