Crisis Architecture

Valens Global has spent years developing the concept of crisis architecture, a methodology for building design intended to make schools, houses of worship and public spaces safer from the threat of mass shootings and other attacks. The industry publication FacilitiesNet has hailed this architectural development because it “improves odds of surviving active shooters.” We can offer clients insights and recommendations for improving physical security strategies and building architecture to keep people safer while maintaining the form and function of the built environment.
