Central to the design brief for our school’s Learning Resource Centre (LRC) was the need for flexible, collaborative learning spaces to cater to our young 21st century learners! As hoped, the LRC has become the resource ‘hub’ of our campus so it was imperative throughout planning and design to ensure that the highest quality software, hardware and overall fit out reflected this intent. From the concept design phase, through to supply and installation, the Frame Oz Image team provided professional advice and innovative ideas to achieve the area that we refer to as Gallery Space. With a range of multi-dimensional frames mounted on a curved wall, student artwork can be displayed to best effect and exhibitions can be mounted quickly and efficiently with further enhancement provided by strategically-placed track lighting.

A casual stroll into Frame’s showroom one Saturday morning in 2010 with only a flimsy idea of what I required in Gallery Space resulted in my first foray into the commercial sector – a professional relationship with Eddie and Colleen that I value highly!

Soon after opening in 2011, our Learning Resource Centre became a ‘flagship’ for other Queensland schools about to embark on the planning phase for their particular Building the Education Revolution (B.E.R.) projects funded by the Federal Government. It was with great pleasure that I hosted visits and proudly endorsed referrals to Frame Oz Images for advice on Gallery projects. Those referrals are still being offered in 2014 as Principals attending a Conference at our L.R.C. have made contact to secure details about how we achieved the Gallery Space – enter Frame Oz Images!

I cannot speak highly enough of Frame’s/Eddie/Colleen’s substantial experience and capability to tune solutions to our specific project. They provided the complete custom-made package and delivered an exceptional result in a cost-effective manner. As the project neared completion, Eddie’s attention to detail was demonstrated in his insistence that the wall and frame fittings receive an extra polish to show them off to best effect!

Overall, I was thrilled to observe how Frame Oz Image’s Gallery range has added design, colour, functionality and simply stunning good looks to our Centre! Thanks, Eddie, Colleen and the entire Frame Team – it was an absolute pleasure working with you all!
