Enhancing Building Security

Enhancing Building Security Booklet

This booklet presents several relatively simple, practical and cost effective security measures and building design considerations that could help lessen the severity of a terrorist attack on a building. The measures listed are by no means comprehensive nor are they mandatory. But they help to serve as a useful introduction to building owners, developers, designers, contractors and other stakeholders working on enhancing the safety of our buildings.
