Aside from strict deadlines and tight budgets, there are hundreds of considerations that go into planning for academic spaces. Ensuring the security and safety of the students – that’s the most important one.
Rockford recently partnered with Secure Education Consultants (SecureEd) at The Potter’s House High School, a faith-based institution, where we completed a 32,000-sq. ft. renovation and 24,000-sq. ft. addition. The SecureEd team is comprised of highly-trained former U.S. Secret Service agents who now incorporate safety planning into educational environments across the country. They specialize in the design of emergency preparedness plans and critical incident training for schools, childcare centers, and businesses.
At The Potter’s House High School and other projects, Rockford has leveraged the expertise of SecureEd to bring the construction of safe spaces for today’s youth to a whole new level. We’re also doing it more cost effectively, bringing expert consultants like SecureEd in before construction has even started.
