Buildings protect what is important to us and given that there will always be threats to building security, there is a need to deploy appropriate and proportionate protective security to protect people and assets from losses.
This guide, written for the procurement team, discusses the importance of establishing security objectives at the outset of a new project and the need for close collaboration between project team members and security advisers. It describes:
- facility planning and design of a protective security system
- how to integrate an effective protective security system into the procurement process for new building projects
- key security tasks, information exchanges, and security roles and responsibilities
- the need to protect information relating to buildings and their security, especially as the industry adopts BIM for procurement and asset management efficiencies.
The importance of testing, evaluating and reviewing security system performance to ensure the system remains fit for purpose through the life of the facility is highlighted.
