Frank Anatole joins Scott Brownrigg Design Research Unit

28.05.09

Scott Brownrigg is delighted to announce the appointment of Frank Anatole, who will join as Architectural Director within the practice’s transport sector on 1 June 2009.

Frank’s appointment comes as Scott Brownrigg continues to develop its transportation skill base, following the successful assimilation of specialist infrastructure practice Design Research Unit in 2004.  Frank will have an important role in further developing Scott Brownrigg’s scope in the transport sector and contributing to the continued growth of the practice.  Working alongside Mike Ward and Maurice Green, his first tasks will be to contribute to marketing and to establishing the strategy and business plan for next year.

Frank has extensive knowledge of design and management skills as well as a wide range of building and engineering expertise but has chosen to specialise in transport and infrastructure design.

After qualifying from Brighton and the University of Essex, Frank spent some time in both local authority and private practice before travelling to Paris where he settled for several years and worked for the SNCF Design Office.  Here, he was involved in the original conceptual studies for the new French TGV and RER station designs for several high profile locations.  Several years later Frank was seconded by SNCF to work in the UK on the development of St Pancras, Kings Cross LUL link, Channel Tunnel Rail Link and Thameslink 2000 interchange.

Joining Marks Barfield in 1998 he worked on a variety of interesting and high profile projects including Abbey Wood Crossrail, Ebbsfleet Station, Ilford Station Interchange and the London Eye, amongst a host of other projects including rail and cultural buildings and a number of bridges.  While at Marks Barfield Frank was also closely involved in designing and developing a modular office furniture system with Segment Systems called SpaceOasis.

Frank joins Scott Brownrigg from Marks Barfield where he was a director and IT Director.
