Geoff Firth: The emerging trend of integrated, intelligent buildings

Geoff Firth, Specification Manager at Boon Edam Ltd, a global market leader in entry solutions, discusses how increased security requirements for commercial buildings has impacted the development of access control systems over the past decade; leading to the emerging trend of integrated, intelligent buildings.

It’s very rare to now walk into a building that does not have any form of security system installed. There are different drivers for this change, such as the ability to control and monitor personnel entering and exiting the building for fire regulations, to protect valuable equipment or data held inside; along with the increasing demand to protect a building against potential terrorist threats.

The attack seems to have deliberately targeted concertgoers as they left the Manchester Arena following the conclusion of a concert by US singer Ariana Grande. Here, Alan Meyrick, Senior Risk Analyst for G4S Risk Consulting Limited, looks at some of the key considerations when securing large scale events.
