EDsession Program & Schedule

The Re-establishment of Safety and Security into Existing Facilities through CPTED

  • Date:Thursday, November 4
  • Time:2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
  • Description: New construction enables a school district to collaborate extensively to incorporate safety and security needs into new facility design from the outset. So how do we approach replicating those needs when renovating existing facilities or projects with less funding available? Part of the solution may lay in the idea that as designers and educators we take a step back in order to go forward. This is the underlying concept of applying CPTED principals (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design). Hear how this grassroots concept can be successfully applied with precision to existing building inventory to address crime prevention with tactful consideration.
