The America Institute of Architects has contributed to this change in mind-set by launching a series of initiatives to address security in building desing. Security Planning and Design is an excellent addition to those initiatives.
Well-outlined and comprehensive, the book harnesses the expertise of knowledgeable security veterans. Various authors share their wisdom and experience on environmental and threat considerations, desing concepts, protection technologies, and security practices. Filled with current, relevant information, the book clearly presents concepts, principles, and processes of various aspects of building security. Blast mitigation and protection from chemical, biological, and radiological agents are among the many topics discussed in the book. Particularly useful is a profile of available building security technologies.
The book ends with desing examples demonstrating the application of security concepts to meet five different protection objetives. In addition to serving as a guide for architects and building design professionals, Security Planning and Design is a valuable resource for system integrators, facility managers, and building owners.
