Security engineering and design consulting from Control Risks helps you identify and integrate appropriate electronic and physical security measures into the design of built infrastructure, starting from project inception.

 

Security risks, operational requirements

Whether you are a developer, owner, security director, architect or constructor, we work to understand your security risks, operational requirements and design philosophy.

Threat-based and risk-commensurate designs work from assessments developed using our own multi-disciplinary risk consulting team. This ensures clarity of purpose, holistic security and cost effectiveness.
 

Security master planning

This identifies what measures are needed to mitigate risks and defines the development of the strategy required to secure assets and people. Control Risks develops measures to address the identified prevailing risks, factoring in unique site characteristics and any overarching client or legal requirements.
 

Protective design

We are specialists in quantifying and mitigating the effects of bomb blasts, ballistic events, physical attack and vehicle impacts throughout the built environment.

Whatever the location, we assess the vulnerability of your people and physical assets against recognised damage and injury levels. Then we develop mitigation strategies to reduce these vulnerabilities
 

Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED)

This and other strategies such as Secured by Design (SBD) use natural surveillance, territorial reinforcement and defensible space to create an environment less likely to attract crime and other threats.

Virtual kidnapping in the United States

Virtual kidnapping is a crime which is traditionally or even principally associated with Latin America. But it is also very common in the US. However, despite how common it is and how much local coverage incidents get, most people still don’t know about virtual kidnapping, and so it continues to thrive.
