Secured By Design Homes 2019 (SBD)


A guide to how Trimetals products can help towards achieving the Secured By Design Homes Gold or Silver Award.

What is the Secure By Design Homes Award?

Developers around the UK can receive Secured By Design awards for incorporating crime prevention measures and techniques into their developments in all kinds of building sectors, such as residential, education, health, transport, commercial, retail, sport and leisure.

These awards are gained after working with SBD’s trained national network of police officers and staff who specialise in designing out crime. Known as Designing Out Crime Officers, they advise and collaborate with architects, developers, and local authority planners long before construction begins – and continue to provide advice and guidance until the development is complete.

SBD Award Application Process

This application process is presented in three sections:

Section 1: Development Layout and Design This section provides guidance on aspects of design and layout that impact on the creation of a safe and secure environment, including road layout, footpath design, communal areas, dwelling boundaries, car parking and lighting.

Section 2: Physical Security of the Home This section provides the ‘Police Preferred Specification’ for physical security requirements for new or refurbished homes.

Section 3 addresses the requirements for a range of additional or optional features, such as enhanced glazing, bicycle storage, drying rooms, external bin stores, etc.
