Based in Arvada, Colorado, AlterNation is led by founder and director Gregory Saville. The firm has a global reach both domestically and internationally, with strategic partners in Europe, Australasia, Latin America, and Canada.
AlterNation has a proven track record providing planning, consulting, and training services in 1st and 2nd Generation CPTED. This includes tactical urbanism with neighborhood popup art galleries, street markets, and intersection repair projects to activate streets. We help neighborhoods deploy digital GPS safety and fear mapping to diagnose crime threats. We apply our expertise in critical infrastructure protection and spatial forensics to provide expert witness testimony on offender search patterns during serious crime cases.
In 2007, AlterNation created our neighborhood planning system – SafeGrowth® – a community-based planning method for instituting annual safety plans and multi-disciplinary, problem-solving teams at the local level. This includes CPTED, community development, team-building, arts & culture, and environmental design.
AlterNation has operated since 2004 and our consultants have worked extensively with federal and municipal governments, private corporations, non-profits, police agencies, security companies, neighborhood groups and community associations.
