Are Your Buildings Safe?

Experts at Building Security Symposium to present latest information

Contributors: James Earl  
 

Building security systems, including site planning and threat analysis, are a critical part of infrastructure security and a new reality for future building designs. The Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) of the Reston, VA-based American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), in conjunction with the Steel and Ornamental Metal Institutes of New York and The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP) of Reston, VA, will explore security issues at the Building Security Symposium in New York City on March 10-11, 2005, at the McGraw-Hill Companies Conference Center.

The 2-day symposium will bring together top engineering, security and design experts, and researchers to address basic principles in building security as well as state-of-the-art mitigation needs and techniques. The sessions will provide guidelines for use by all building professionals, including architects, engineers, builders, developers, building owners, and government officials.

Featured topics include risk assessment, building envelope and egress design, progressive collapse analysis, physical security concerns, fire protection, and mechanical and electrical issues.

The conference will feature presentations by Charles Meyer, president, Henry Adams LLC; William Koffel, president, Koffel Associates Inc.; Darrell Barker, vice president, ABS Consulting; Joe Smith, senior vice president, Applied Research Associates Inc.; and other representatives from federal agencies and experts from design, engineering, and construction firms.

Registration is $275 for members of AEI, ASCE, TISP, and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) who register by Wednesday, Feb. 23, and $350 for nonmembers. After Feb. 23, the fee is $325 for members and $400 for nonmembers. Engineers and architects can earn continuing education units (CEUs).
