The Control Risks team helps integrate security measures into building designs from project inception. We work with developers, owners, security directors, architects and constructors to understand their security risks, operational requirements, and design philosophy.
Our approach is aligned with the client’s needs and potential risks. Our designers work in collaboration with expert threat and risk analysts to underpin the design and justify capital investment in security design features.
From the outset we use respected prevention strategies such as Secured by Design (SBD) and Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED). These can reduce the reliance on electronic security measures by using natural surveillance, territoriality and defensible space to create an environment which is less likely to attract crime and other threats in the first place.
We support architects, engineers, and project managers with security design deliverables aligned with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Work Stages. This has enabled us to engage with multi-disciplinary design projects in the following sectors:
- Mixed use developments
- Prime residential and high net worth estates
- Data centres
- Sport and leisure
- Oil and gas
- Government and NGO
We have a specialist terrorist damage assessments practice helping clients to mitigate the risk from terrorist activity. For clients needing to review existing security provisions, either following a change in threat or as part of a planned audit, Control Risks can provide a full assessment of procedural, physical, and electronic security measures. We can also recommend mitigation measures to meet specific vulnerabilities identified during the audit.
