We believe that community impact can be measured in many ways.
At NORR, we understand our greatest contribution to local communities is our design work that supports how people live, work, play, shop, learn, commute – and how they are cared for. Through this extraordinary pandemic, we have, more than ever, realized the critical role design plays in creating resilient spaces and places. We’ve developed formats born of necessity and have examined challenges in existing design standards that need to change to safeguard people.
Our team members volunteer their time to many local causes. For example, we participate in design review panels for municipalities to provide input into long-range development plans. Our team members are also encouraged to take active roles in professional associations, education advisory positions and local charities to help build a strong social fabric.
In celebration of people, and to ease some of the hardships suffered by many during the pandemic, NORR has made and will continue to make contributions to local food banks in our regions. Our team also organized food drives in all our local offices to help people cope in these times of need.
We will continue to evolve and grow our community impact.
