NCARB’s Newest Monograph, Security Planning and Design, Offers Continuing Education HSW Credits

Washington, DC—NCARB’s newest monograph, Security Planning and Design, presents concepts, principles, and processes for incorporating enhanced security into the design of new and existing buildings. Since the tragic events of 9-11 and the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma, there has been an increasing demand to build more secure buildings and enhance the security of those already built. Today’s designs must prevent and detect threats from criminal and terrorist acts aimed at the structure and their occupants.

Comprising nine chapters, the monograph examines contextual issues for security at regional, community, and local levels; outlines the process used to define security needs; profiles building security technologies; and presents methods for protecting people in buildings from chemical, biological, and radiological contamination.

Those who successfully complete the Security Planning and Design quiz will earn 12 professional development units and/or AIA learning units in health, safety, and welfare. The monograph’s price includes the monograph, the webbased quiz, the score reporting process, and one free retest if needed. Online, fax, or mail orders are accepted for all NCARB monographs.
