RESPEC’s engineers and design staff recognize that security is significantly important to protecting lives, facilities, and technology as well as mission communications. We produce designs based on the Unified Facilities Criteria 4-20-01 requirements and work closely with local subject-matter experts to match base- and/or post-installation requirements. Our facilities civil engineering team uses the latest modeling techniques for Antiterrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) vehicle roadway approach designs by applying selective use of native granite, concrete, and other vehicle-obstruction methods to maintain explosion safety zones. Fencing designs are also created to limit pedestrian access around secured facilities. To reinforce the Security Forces’ ability to protect larger areas, RESPEC’s security, electrical, and civil engineers have provided multiple electronic-detection methods that are integrated with the video surveillance and lighting systems at multiple U.S. Air Force facilities. Access controls, including Level 1 and 2 card readers and biometric readers, are coordinated with the architectural design, which involves mantraps and turnstile designs. Protection of the electric and electronic signals from high altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) and other shielding techniques, as well as associated door and penetration protection, have been incorporated into several U.S. Department of Defense facilities at Fort Greely, Eielson Air Force Base, and Clear Air Force Station in Alaska.
RESPEC utilizes a variety of cutting edge technologies to enhance project delivery and add value to the final product. These tools can give our clients a more holistic view of their project than ever before possible, when compared to traditional methodologies.
