The Evolution of Physical Security in Modern Building Design

In the majority of cases, firms were not considering physical security at the start of the project and were addressed at a later stage. This necessitated the implementation of additional security measures, such as physical barriers. Surveillance cameras were not budgeted for, and this made it difficult to cover areas with no natural camera coverage.

It is essential to incorporate physical security into building design, treating it akin to essential utilities like heating and lighting. A decade ago, the top three priorities for building design were safety, materials used and reliability, with security absent from the top three. Today, the landscape has shifted, with sustainability, safety and security ranking as the top three priorities.

Architects and engineers have responded to this demand, and 56% now have a process for integrating security into building design. There is a good understanding of the need for physical security to be an integral part of the design, rather than ”patched in” later.
