With today’s concern and emphasis on security, designers are challenged to provide their clients with the latest and most effective security elements, without resulting in structures that look like bunkers. Join us for a presentation by two experts in the field to find out how you can incorporate security elements without massive barriers that make your buildings look over fortified. This program can help with both large and small projects.

 In it, you will learn:
• How to provide design for secure buildings that are open and inviting.
• What materials are best suited to achieving your ends.
• How and when to conduct a security assessment/audit and how it can help you in your design.
