Security Program Development

Developing a well-conceived security program helps establish and document criteria for the protective solution for an agency or corporation while leading to the design of a facility or infrastructure while maintaining sensitivity to a client’s mission.

These programmatic elements often extend far past operational policy and procedures encompassing physical and electronic security, incorporating architecture, MEP, structure, lighting, and landscape. The program must also document the team’s understanding of eventual operational parameters, such as pedestrian/vehicular traffic flow, screening, and materials management. This multifaceted approach ensures that every design discipline plays a role in the safety and security of the project.

The security program is developed early in the design process and then used throughout the design lifecycle as a governing document for the entire design team. Working together, the team determines the best way to translate those principles into constructible project elements as the design evolves.
