Case Study: Protective Design & Blast Engineering
A leading global social media company based in California was expanding its headquarters at a new site. The company engaged Control Risks to understand its terrorism risk exposures, establish structural design requirements and then act on its behalf in technical discussions with the multi-disciplinary design team.
We conducted an assessment in two stages:
- First, a blast threat and risk assessment identified the threats to the campus, the likelihood of occurrence and the resulting overall risk.
- Second, a blast vulnerability assessment estimated the consequence of a successful attack on the key areas of the site.
- We provided specialist design services to develop a blast resistant superstructure and blast resistance glazing.
- The client acquired a sophisticated understanding of its terrorism risk exposure.
