Research & Policy

Rebuild by Design’s collaborative research and design approach is heavily rooted in understanding issues from multiple perspectives. By bringing together outside talent and local experts, Rebuild connects big picture problems with replicable solutions that can be embraced by communities and governments alike.

Further building on its collaborative problem-solving approach, Rebuild regularly researches and surveys the outcomes from its projects and initiatives to help others learn from the experiences. It also documents the policy and regulatory barriers communities encounter as they work through proposed solutions. This process helps inform governments and innovators as they design and implement future projects.
