2 : Design and Planning - What We Do

 
Thorough preparation enables Hardened Structures to deliver a solution perfectly tailored to our client needs.
A Hardened Structure Facility can be constructed in most localities, urban, suburban or rural. By its nature, a Hardened Structure is usually designed to perform its PRIMARY MISSION both during and after a war-like or criminal attack, a major natural disaster, or accidental / man-made emergencies.
We address these challenges by employing a Multi-Hazard Engineering methodology in our design and planning stages that not only recognizes individual hazards/threats sequentially, but also address all hazards/threats simultaneously as a problem of optimization under constraints. A Hardened Structures facility can be designed to protected against a wide range of threats including:
  • WMD's
  • Frontal Assault and Forced Entry
  • Economic Collapse / Breakdown of Law & Order
  • Anarchy / Ballistic / Blast Protection / Cataclysm
  • Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Explosive (CBRE) agents
  • Airblast
  • Ground shock
  • Fragmentation and damage to the structure and equipment due to explosive loading
  • Penetration
"HARDENING" a primary requirement and a significant part of the cost.
Along with the Client's particular living, function and storage requirements, designs can also incorporate active defense and manned and mechanical responses to reduce the effectiveness of any given threat while providing for individual/family long term living requirements.
