The corporate headquarters of a major international company recognized the need to better protect its building against blasts. Discussions with suppliers of protective glass and laminate resulted in a multi-million dollar proposal to protect all 28 floors of its building which has a fully glazed exterior.
Our team of experts were commissioned to undertake a Threat & Risk Analysis and concluded that by implementing strict access control to the underground car park, the threat from a major blast could be limited to outside the building. Furthermore, the road layout and the wider base of the building indicated that the extent of blast damage would be limited to only certain floors and elevations of the building.
By protecting only those windows that were really at risk, the client avoided unnecessary investment and was assured a cost-effective use of the available security budget.
