Since 1945, FGMA's mission and purpose has been woven into the fabric of the communities we serve. These communities can be subject to acute shocks and chronic stresses - environmental, economic, and social challenges that impact the livelihoods of the people who live, work, study, worship and play there. As designers of the built environment, our role includes the assessment of these risks and the incorporation of resilient design strategies to counteract them. Our goal is the creation of a Resilient Community, one that can resist and recover from these shocks and stresses: a community where the natural environment is treasured and the safety, health and well-being of its people is our paramount concern.
THE NEW NORMAL
Creating safe, secure, and supportive environments for learning, work, play, and worship in unprecedented times.
HOW DO WE GET THERE?
Organizations must first develop policies and implement procedures that ensure safety for everyone. The FGMA Resilient Communities experts can assist with finding resources for your organization for these first two steps.
Staff working remotely, full- or part-time, will be fully engaged in the work, operations, and culture of the firm.
ADAPT THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT
Once policies and procedures are in place, our Resilient Communities experts can assist with the modification of your physical environments to support your goals.
