Public buildings also have a responsibility to be exemplary examples of timeless architecture, and fully capable of responding to change over a sustained period of time. In that context, it is important that the client or “stakeholder”, that will utilize the building, be deeply involved in the process. Good buildings, those that function best, are those that are the product of a defined “participatory design process” in which the architect/planner and the stakeholder are co-authors. That is when and how a project succeeds. This publication, in that regard is intended to serve as a guide to that process or methodology. It will inform you about the detail of the process and how, importantly, you can be a viable part of ensuring that your facility is both successful for the user as well as the community in which it is located.

Architects Design Group, Inc
30 Years of Design Excellence

The publication documents the first 30 years of work by Architects Design Group. Beginning in the 1970’s, shortly after founding of the firm, a commitment was made to focus the practice of architecture on serving Public Sector Clients. A critical foundation of the practice was a quest to exploit the artistic potential in public sector architecture through a true collaborative process that involves the architects and the user group of the buildings being designed. The publication includes a series of essays further expounding on the design philosophy of the founder, I.S.K. Reeves V, FAIA and a portfolio of important projects from the first 3-decades of the firm.

CIO Leadership for Public Safety Communications: Emerging Trends and Practices
CIO Leadership for Public Safety Communications: Emerging Trends and Practices

Working with APCO International and a host of authors including the ADG staff, Dr. Shark developed “CIO Leadership for Public Safety Communications: Emerging Trends and Practices.”  The purpose of this collaborative book is to provide Public Safety Communications Officials with real-life examples of exciting and varied “snapshots” of how technology “thought leadership” and the drive for innovation is currently impacting the public safety landscape. Additionally, it is written to educate local officials on the leading practices, trends and opportunities that today’s technologies can offer in the field of public safety communications.

Ian Reeves specifically authored Chapter 28 – “Critical Components for Survivable, Sustainable, and Flexible Communications Centers” which focuses on the criteria to ensure that these types of facilities remain operational before, during, and after a man-made or natural disaster. Proper planning, design, and engineering are essential to the success of the facility.
