As well as designing the security scheme for Rothschild’s New Court headquarters, we also were appointed to technically assess the likelihood and possible damage by a VBIED being detonated within the immediate vicinity of the building.
In addition to maintaining a reasonable level of standoff, allowing for heavy pedestrian footfall from the nearby mainline tube stations and acting as a traffic calming system, the chosen solution also needed to offer minimum disruption and relocation of the underground utilities which are abundant within the area.
We presented various concept designs with the design team using a variety of different HVM products. Each design offered pros and cons from a cost of product benefit against amount of diversions required. The chosen product balanced both elements most effectively.
Our scheme to not only mitigates the VBIED threat and reduces the disruption of local utilities, but it also reduces the impact on the street scene and provides significant cost savings to the client.
