STR considers security an essential component of school design. We value the safety of all building users, including students, teachers, and administrators. We work to enhance school security with features such as secure-entry vestibules, access control systems, camera monitoring, bullet-resistant and laminated glass, classroom safety hardware, and emergency notification. In the planning stages, STR works with local law enforcement to incorporate best practices in our designs. And, as with all of our projects, we assist with obtaining applicable safety and security grants for our client’s projects.
