Randy Romanin, Senior Architect and Security Specialist with Morrison Hershfield and Scott Hogan, Chief, Security Requirements and Project Management Office with the Senate of Canada, are pleased to be presenting the session titled Balancing Public Access and Security. The session takes place on September 24th from 10:30 11:45 a.m. in N249, and is part of the Perimeter Protection track.

Further information and registration details can be found here.

Presentation Overview:

Public access to buildings and building perimeter security may seem incompatible.  Security at a building site can impose limits on people’s movements that may seem to conflict with the public’s perception of site accessibility. The basic purpose of perimeter security is to discourage access.  However, through its increased use in urban areas, and in commercial, retail and public applications, perimeter security has evolved to allow for the provision of security features in a non-aggressive way through landscaping and other softer design elements.  Hear about the advantages of integrating security into site perimeters early in the design stage for maximum compatibility with the site’s accessibility objectives.

What you can expect to gain from this session:

  • An understanding of the common security and public access objectives as applied to the built environment.
  • An awareness of how the design of both life safety and security systems can positively or adversely impact each other.
  • A basic understanding of how to evaluate solutions that encompass security requirements, budgets and aesthetics.
