The Courthouse POE toolkit is part of a broad effort by the AIA to disseminate Knowledge pertaining to best practices in justice facility design. As such, toolkit users will be asked to anonymously share their findings. The results will contribute to a database of aggregated information about courthouse design that will inform substantial improvement in the field, and allow researchers to examine the relationships among physical variables of courthouse design and their outcomes.
We hope you find this toolkit useful and that it helps further the pursuit of meaningful evidence-based design practices!In order to download the toolkit, users must agree to the terms and conditions included on the download page.
