Our design standards services are targeted at clients with large, dynamic, globally disbursed real estate portfolios. We support these clients by creating architectural and system design standards to maximise the efficiency of the designing, commissioning and programming of their system. This in turn facilitates the streamlining of procurement activities, project management and operational delivery.
We recognise the burden placed on corporate security departments of multiple, varied capital projects, whether they be reconfigurations of existing office space, office fit-outs, or the designing and construction of new offices. We work with clients to define corporate standards in design, product selection, and system programming and installation. This generation of greater consistency and standardisation across our clients’ businesses means they are able to make more effective use of limited resources, budget more accurately, manage more efficient maintenance regimes and embed a common understanding across internal stakeholders and risk partners. The impact of these services is the generation of substantial increases in time and capacity for corporate security professionals; enabling them to focus on the delivery of safe and secure business environments.
Design standards should suit the immediate needs and requirements of the organisation, and should typically aim to meet the following requirements:
Creation and maintenance of the security baseline standard should be an ever-evolving and ongoing process and will require support from all key stakeholders within the organisation.
