Tornado Safe Rooms

for Schools and Communities

Experienced Tornado Safe Room Team

Designing Tornado Safe Rooms since 2006, Sapp Design Associates Architects has assisted dozens of midwest school districts and communities with obtaining grants, the design and the construction of FEMA rated safe rooms (tornado shelters) that can withstand an EF-5 tornado.

Our FEMA Design team has experience with a multitude of safe rooms that have been completed on time and under budget.

More than just a Tornado Safe Room

These shelters can be added to an existing facility, stand alone  or be incorporated into the design of a new facility. Safe Rooms do not have to just be “safe rooms” they  can serve dual purposes as multipurpose gyms, classrooms, cafeterias and community rooms.
