school security

The most significant charge of any school district is to ensure the safety and well-being of its students, faculty, and staff. Ariston utilizes its expertise in designing secure spaces to produce facilities that are welcoming to students, while also being safe, secure learning environments. In addition to designing new spaces and facilities, our firm also conducts school safety assessments for existing buildings, helping school districts and administrators identify and remedy potential safety issues.

When designing a safe and secure school environment,we also rely on our experience in designing other building types that require heightened levels of security, including government centers, police stations, detention centers, and financial institutions. A number of design aspects can have a great impact on school safety and security, including:

  • Access Control & Surveillance Technology
  • Visual Control through Physical Design of Spaces
  • Compliance with Accessibility Standards
  • Egress Paths, Flow Control, & Emergency Signage
  • Lighting and Audio Systems

Our firm's experience is complimented by our relationships with consultants and advisors who are experts in the areas of safety and security. These include technologists like product suppliers and engineers, as well as local and regional law enforcement entities. Together we have established a security consulting group called "The Security Alliance."
