Chicago architecture and construction firms will collaborate to help create new low-risk buildings that are zero-tolerance for potential theft, fraud and identity theft.
According to the Chicago Architectural Review, the collaboration between architecture firms and the city’s Department of Buildings will create a new design and a framework for addressing the security challenges posed by the city.
The project will aim to help meet the challenges of new architecture that are designed to meet specific needs and provide a level of assurance and transparency that allows the building to function in a secure and responsible manner,” said architect Chris R. Schreiber, who is overseeing the project.
In a statement, the Department of Building said it is committed to the safety of its tenants and residents, and to helping them create more secure, low-cost and high-quality buildings.
It added that the collaborative effort between the architects, developers and the Department will create new buildings that meet the needs of the city, while also supporting its mission to provide residents with a quality living and work environment.
The Department of Construction is a partnership between the City of Chicago, the Chicago Department of Public Health and the Illinois Department of Justice.
