Sample text

What is the type and frequency of criminal activity in the area? A site that has high security risks may not be automatically disqualified just because of crime if the location is desirable. The owner may choose the site but acknowledge the security threats and vulnerabilities, and address them properly through design, technology, manpower, and security management. The second level of security defense planning is the perimeter or exterior of the building. The building shell and its openings represent, after the site perimeter and grounds, the crucial second line of defense against intrusion and forced entry.

New and evolving security guidelines and standards by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 730, Guide for Premises Security, and NFPA 731, Standard for the Installation of Electronic Security Systems, 2006; Uniform Building Code Security Guidelines, 1997; GSA Security Standards, 1995; ISC Security standards for GSA leased spaces, 2004), serve as a basis for minimum standards and direction for security and design professionals. If security is treated as one of the many design requirements, then the implementation and costs for such measures will be no more a burden to the project owners than fire safety features or landscaping requirements.

Post 9/11, the costs and inconvenience are no longer valid arguments. Resistance is futile, and to pretend that protecting the site, the building or interior assets, or that there will not be serious consequences for not doing so is naive. The exciting aspect of designing safe buildings and infrastructure is that it serves the health, safety, and welfare of the building occupants, its property, and strengthens the sense of community.
