Protecting Historical and Newer Buildings in the Age of Terrorism

Protecting Historical and Newer Buildings in the Age of Terrorism. The beautiful Gulfo di Napoli (Bay of Naples) sets the stage for a discussion on Using Building Design to Reduce the Effects of Terrorist Attack. Architects, engineers, facility managers, planners and security professionals, from government agencies and the private sector, meet to discuss proven principles for the high occupancy built-up environment. They will share their lessons learned. Our case study review will be of the European Simulation and Validation Center (ESVC) in Ede, The Netherlands. The study involved reducing the risk of active shooter threats to students and staff.

Naples, with all of its historically important buildings is the perfect backdrop as we discuss preserving the cultural identity of facilities while at the same time incorporating modern-day crime prevention and antiterrorism guidelines. “Unless community leaders have a strategic plan, their efforts in meeting the ever increasing needs of the urban environment will become a patch-work of ideas and risk reduction will be marginal, at best. As urban centers of the future increase in population so will the demand for functionality on a multitude of levels. This workshop addresses the security quotient of the Smart Cities formula”, says Doug Haines, course facilitator.

The Using Building Design to Reduce the Effects of Terrorist Attack workshop will be held on 11 July and is sponsored by Amulet® Protective Technologies of Phoenix, AZ. Amulet® Ballistic Barriers were used in the retrofit of the ESVC (our case study). Overall the risk reduction to the active shooter threat was calculated at 84 percent. In other words, the Delta if you will, from where the risk was at the time of the assessment to where it will be when all of the recommendations are implemented.

The workshop will be conducted in English and translated into Italian (when necessary).
