Using Building Design to Reduce the Effects of Terrorist Attack
Currently buildings are designed for aesthetics and functionality and very rarely with a threat in mind. Security professionals usually get involved in mitigation strategy planning at the end of the design review cycle. In this session we discuss strategies that reduce the effectiveness of terrorist attack. These approaches can be implemented from the beginning of any new building construction or at the on-set of any renovation project. Experience shows us that when security features are incorporated into the design during the initial phases, there is less than a 5% increase versus 25-30% if added later.
1. Learn how to implement security solutions at the beginning of all projects
2. Understand the importance of including all stakeholders in the decision making process from the on-set of any project
3. Learn that they can save both short term and long term
4. Learn when to implement new design strategies and when it’s more cost effective not to
