Security Design Consultancy
We understand your security concerns, operational needs, and design philosophy, whether you're a developer, owner, security director, architect, or constructor. From the very beginning of the project, our design engineering team assists you in identifying and incorporating technological and physical security measures.
What We Do
Security Threat, Risk & Vulnerability Assessments
We assess the security threats and vulnerabilities and create a realistic and cost-effective strategy to reduce the overall risk to an acceptable and manageable level. In identifying threats, we undertake detailed project context evaluation that considers everything from petty crime to terrorism. We then establish risk tolerance and develop security protection objectives.
Security Brief & Strategy Development
Upon acceptance of the Security Risk Assessment, BARC shall develop the security strategy for the project. This shall outline the security requirements based on the security threat and risk assessment to ensure the approach is risk-based.
Physical Security & Blast Mitigation
Physical security relates to using barriers to delay and defeats an attack with elements such as enhanced structural design and blast-resistant glazing. Our specialists can simulate the detonation of a device in a building or cityscape to analyse the effect of the resulting blast wave on the structural elements of buildings, including columns, beams, slabs and glazing.
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
We have expertise in making the public space around buildings safer via crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED). This method involves creating environments that discourage potential offenders from committing criminal acts by considering the physical design of the areas where people live and congregate.
Electronic Security Design
Our electronic security solutions include, among other things, video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection and communications systems, prohibited object and substance detection equipment, real-time location systems, emergency notification devices and perimeter protection design. In addition, we work in close partnership with multi-discipline design teams to ensure that security systems are integrated with a project’s building systems.
