Building design can never afford to neglect security.
BPS regularly works with engineers and architects to ensure the security industry’s best practices are in place to protect your building and all the assets it covers.
Expert Building Security Consultants
Do you have an engineering or architecture project with complex security requirements?
It is not going to be enough to hand this work scope off to a low voltage engineer. Implementing security is more complex today than your typical mechanical/electrical/plumbing-type service can handle alone.
A qualified security consultant can:
- identify risks early in the programming phase of work
- set requirements which can take the guesswork out of security early in the project
- ensure consistent coordination throughout a project
No one can afford to have security concerns emerge in the middle of a project. That lack of planning can disrupt the work of other related trades (e.g., electrical, door hardware, network) in later phases of design.
Engaging a security consultant while incurring a fee to the project will ensure that both the architect and the owner will be afforded the full array of security solutions. That is a benefit not typically provided when a single vendor or manufacturer is engaged. You get what you pay for.
Make sure you get what you need. Contact BPS today.
Building Security Design
BPS can add strategic security resources to your design project.
By including our security risk assessment in your job, you make sure to clarify acceptable levels of risk, review cost-effective security measures, and identify any trade-offs your security choices will have on the design, construction, and use of the building.
We pay close attention to crime prevention through environmental design, or CPTED. CPTED can help reduce vulnerabilities while at the same time promoting positive perceptions as well as actions. Our experts know how to impact people’s behavior with key concepts:
- access control
- natural and technical surveillance
- physical design
As with all our security practices, BPS stays up-to-date on CPTED best practices. Let us help you make the most of your design and add CPTED to your project. Contact us.
Security System Implementation Coordination
Let us manage the security side of vendor selection and oversight. We can coordinate to make sure your security needs are met with a variety of vendors, including:
- door hardware
Our construction administration services include specification review, commissioning, and close-out. We know where vendors sometimes overlook critical installation details. Let us help you avoid unnecessary mis-steps and get more out of your contractors. Contact us.
