#1 Priority: Safety & Security

Facility owners, operators and architects share the responsibility for designing facilities that offer visitors not only a rewarding experience but a safe environment.

For example, the reception desk at the North Idaho College Student Wellness & Fitness Center (shown in photo to the left) is located just inside the entry. It is configured to provide optimum visibility, both inside and outside, to serve as a controlled access point into the building. It also provides an additional level of control for access to the climbing wall area, which boasts visibility to spectators outside as well as inside the building.

This article from Athletic Business explores the critical topic of safety as it relates to the design of a new or remodeled athletic facility.
