  • What: Safe and Secure Schools: How Do We Get There?
    Creating a safe and secure learning environment takes more than cameras and a double entry vestibule. The psychology of space design in schools can directly impact the ever-important, often missing, feeling of being safe by building occupants. In addition, it is important for school systems to complete a thorough risk assessment preceding the development of a thorough Crisis Management Plan. As community assets, the creation of safe school environments is the responsibility of the entire neighborhood and community.

  • What: Why Research Findings Should Impact Design Solutions.
    Scientific evidence abounds. Researching to obtain new knowledge is not easy, and then applying it in design solutions is sometimes even harder. DLR Group, is sharing our sponsored research efforts and challenges to: (1) develop an in-house and partnered research team, (2) by engaging in primary research initiatives using academic protocols, and (3) providing directions for how that new knowledge is shared and how new in-house protocols are being developed to embed this Evidence-Based Design into the design of project solutions.
