New Facility Design and Security Planning

When engaged in the early stages of new facility design, CIS consultants can help maximize return on building investment and avoid costly mistakes.

New Facility Design and Security Planning

One of the most common mistakes made in the design and construction of new facilities is failing to fully account for security and emergency response.

Establishing proper security criteria and specifications in the earliest phases of architectural design maximizes return on construction investment and provides best opportunity to avoid mistakes that are often expensive and difficult, if not impossible to correct later.

When engaged as consultants in the early phases of new facility design, CIS assists architects and facility planners using the principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) and advanced Physical Protection System (PPS) design and analysis tools, such as Sandia’s Estimate of Adversary Sequence Interruption (EASI) Model, to aid in designing effective physical security while simultaneously creating an aesthetic environment that promotes effective workforce activity, positive branding, and public image.
