This comprehensive training is built for property managers, owners, developers, and designers who want to build a safe and strong community. Through our leading-edge education we intend to empower you to build vibrant, fully inhabited communities while keeping your budget in focus.
A building’s lighting impacts our ability to perceive what is happening around us. This module explores how the placement and amount of lighting impacts users’ sense of safety and understanding of a space.
Getting lost while navigating a building is a tiring experience. This module explores how buildings can be designed to make it easier for people to find their way around and feel secure in a sense of where they are.
Some spaces have inhabitants or regular visitors who keep an eye on what’s happening. This natural surveillance boosts the safety of these spaces through deterring antisocial behaviours like littering or vandalism.
Some spaces like public stairwells and large blank walls are vulnerable to unwanted behaviours like vandalism, loitering, and theft. Once identified, there are many ways to improve the safety of these spaces.
A Live Q&A will be held on May 5th at 12:00-1:00pm Mountain Time.

Buildings can comfortably fit the proportions of the human body, or they can feel out of scale and harsh or alienating. When designed with human scale in mind, spaces feel proportional, natural, and safe.
Buildings impact our physical health in some very direct ways: cleanliness of common areas, indoor air quality, and whether or not they encourage physical activity such as taking the stairs.
Some elements of a building like unique details and murals can express the culture, identity, and aspirations of inhabitants. This adds character to the building and invites people to develop a meaningful bond with it.
Beautiful spaces inspire positive emotions, while unkept ones imply that no one cares for them. By investing in elements that bring life and joy to a space, inhabitants are more likely to care about it and help maintain it.
