Promoting Safer Communities & Designing out Crime in the Built Environment

National, Regional and Local Planning Policies all encourage the early consideration of Designing for Community Safety and Designing out Crime.

Be prepared – Engage with us early to inform design development, planning and  construction!

Our input assists architects and project teams to integrate effective crime prevention principles into concept, detailed and technical designs and inform the specification of coherent, inter-linked security measures.

ANNBURR provide impartial advice on Designing out Crime and Secured by Design for:

  • SBD – Design Principles and Security Standards Consultations
  • BREEAM Security Needs Assessments (SNA) – HEA 06
  • Crime Prevention Design Advice – Architects, Developers & LPA’s

Helping to minimise potential for costly surprises, incompatibility problems and obtrusive retro-fix measures later on.

Independent research has shown that the implementation of SBD measures during design and construction, will promote safer community living, significantly reduce instances of crime and enhance ongoing sustainability.
