The American Clearinghouse on Educational Facilities is funded by the United States Department of Education to provide resources for K12 and higher education facilities design. Last year, I recorded some audio and video podcasts for the clearinghouse. The podcast Designing Safer and More Effective Schools incorporates concepts that I use when presenting on safe school design for architects, schools, and public safety officials. Design concepts such as crime prevention through environmental design – CPTED can improve school safety while also reducing construction costs.
This free podcast is just one of the many free resources offered by the ACEF.
